Dan McCarthy


SAVANNAH, Georgia — Dan McCarthy won the Savannah Golf Championship for his first Tour title, closing with a 3-under 69 for a one-stroke victory over Scottie Scheffler.

McCarthy finished at 16-under 272 on The Landings Club’s Deer Creek Course. The 33-year-old former Le Moyne College player jumped from 119th to eighth in the points race for 25 PGA Tour cards.

“You don’t know that you can do it until you actually do it out here,” McCarthy said. “It’s been a slow start to the year. I’ve played pretty well but I just really couldn’t get the putter going. And finally this week it just all opened up. It means the world.”

He held at least a share of the lead each round of the tournament.

Scheffler shot a 70.
