Napa, Calif. – With rounds of 65-65 on the weekend, punctuated by a closing birdie, Stewart Cink captured his seventh career PGA Tour victory Sunday with a two-stroke triumph at the Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa.

By winning his first PGA Tour event in 11 years (the 2009 Open Championship), Cink, 47. earned a two-year exemption on the Tour and berths in the 2021 Masters, Players Championship and PGA Championship. The 1995 Tech graduate and three-time All-American had finished 144th in FedEx cup points last season (2019-20) and had just one top-10 finish (Houston Open).

Cink posted rounds of 67-70-65-65 for a 21-under-par total of 267. He took the lead for good with a putt for birdie from off the green at the par-3 15th hole and followed with birdies at 16 and 18 to hold off a challenge from Tour rookie Harry Higgs, who finished at 19-under-par.

His victory was the second for a Georgia Tech alumnus on the PGA Tour in calendar year 2020, following Richy Werenski’s triumph at the Barracuda Championship in August. Former Jacket Seth Reeves won a Korn Ferry Tour event, the Pinnacle Bank Championship, the same day.
