ATHENS, Ga. - Former Bulldogs star Brendon Todd won the Web.com Tour's Stadion Classic on Sunday when rain washed out the fourth round at the University of Georgia Golf Course.
The 2007 graduate became the third consecutive Bulldogs player to win the event. Russell Henley won in 2011 while still in school, and Hudson Swafford took the 2012 title.
"I think it has something to do with being comfortable out here," said Todd, who helped the Bulldogs win the 2005 NCAA title. "You still have to hit all the shots, but sometimes the shots are just more comfortable. I'm excited because I wanted to put my name on that list."
Todd shot a 2-under 69 on Saturday to reach 8-under 205, a stroke ahead of playing partner Tim Wilkinson and two in front of Nick Rousey.
"I was ready to play today," Todd said. "With all the rain we had and the water on the course it didn't seem feasible that we would play. This is sweet. I don't really care how I win."
Todd, also the 2008 Utah Championship winner, earned $108,000 to jump from 37th to fourth on the money list with $143,528.
