Former Vanderbilt All-American Jon Curran won his first Web.com Tour event on Sunday after shooting a 25-under par, 259 (61-64-65-69) at the Brasil Champions presented by HSBC in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Curran, who was an honorable mention All-American in 2007 with the Commodores, shot the low round of the tournament with his opening-round 61 on Thursday and led wire-to-wire at the event. The Brasil Champions was only Curran's third career start on the Web.com Tour after earning his card last fall at the Web.com Q School.
Curran won by four strokes over Alex Cejka, who was second on the Web.com Tour money list heading into the tournament.
"It's probably the best I've ever played or putted or scored for 36 holes," Curran told the SportsNetwork.com prior to his round on Sunday. "I wasn't sure what was going on. It was ridiculous. I just wondered what the heck was going on.
"It sounds cliche, but I wasn't doing anything special," continued Curran. "I was making a lot of putts. I was hitting a lot of quality iron shots and putting it in the fairway. I was giving myself a lot of chances to hit it close and I felt pretty confident with the putter."
The former Vanderbilt standout next plays at the Panama Claro Championship in Panama City, Panama, March 20-23.
