Canadian DeCorso Wins On Nationwide Tour

It was great to see Ontario native Bryan DeCorso became the 11th Canadian to win on the Nationwide Tour over the weekend when he won the South Georgia Classic this past Sunday. Canadians as a whole have won 17 times on the Nationwide Tour. That's second only to Australia's 36 wins among international players.

Bryan DeCorso shot a three-under 69 on Sunday to win the South Georgia Classic by four shots. DeCorso claimed his first Nationwide Tour victory at 14-under 274, breaking by four shots the tournament scoring record set by John Kimbell in the first year of the event last season. He was close the week earlier with a tie for fourth.

"I don't know if there was ever a monkey on my back, because this is my first full year on the Nationwide Tour, but I've been a pro for a long time. I've dreamed of playing on the PGA Tour, and now I'm that much closer," said DeCorso, who earned $112,500 for the win and moved into fourth place on the money list.
