For a second time this year a Canadian has won on the PGA Tour. Following Nick Taylor of Winnipeg, Manitoba who won the 2024 Phoenix Open in February, on Sunday, Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ontario won the 2024 CJ Cup Byron Nelson outside of Dallas, Texas.

Pendrith posted a four round score of -23. Ben Kohles of Dallas, Texas was alone in second place with a score of -22. Alex Noren of Stockholm, Sweden was alone in third place at -21. There was then a four-way tie for fourth place at -20. There you could find England’s Matt Wallace, South Korea’s Byeong-hun An, England’s Aaron Rai, and South Korea’s Seong-hyeon Kim.

In the fourth round on Sunday, Pendrith had five birdies and one bogey for a final round score of four-under-par. He birdied the first, sixth, ninth, 12th, and 18th holes, and bogeyed the eighth hole.

In the final stages of the fourth round on Sunday, there was an expectation that there would be a playoff. However, Kohles had an unexpected bogey on the 18th hole. He missed a five foot, six inch putt that landed three inches from the hole. The missed shot paved the way for Pendrith who won his first PGA tournament with a birdie.
