This season is Wesley Bryan’s first full season on the PGA Tour. In the 13 events he played in prior to last week, he had three top 10 finishes, had missed the cut in only four, earning him around $820,000.
On Sunday, after four rounds in the 60’s at Harbour Town in Hilton Head, South Carolina, Bryan’s home state, he earned himself three more years on the PGA Tour and a check for $1,170,000. That’s not bad for a guy who finished tied for ninth at Q-school so he could play on the Web.com tour in 2016.
.@WesleyBryanGolf … very candid when discussing nerves.

After his win, Bryan was quite candid with the CBS crew about how he was feeling on the course.
“Honestly, I wasn’t nervous at all, all day, and then No. 17, I got up and honestly I just threw up a little bit in my mouth, and I was like, well, shoot, I guess this is what nervous feels like.”
Bryan, who is the first player from South Carolina to win the event, is also the first player since Zach Johnson in 2004 to win on the PGA Tour in the season after being named Web.com Player of the Year.
