Bill Lunde has claimed his maiden PGA Tour title with a one-shot victory at the Turning Stone Resort Championship.

American Bill Lunde claimed his maiden PGA Tour title on Sunday with a one-shot victory at the Turning Stone Resort Championship in Verona, New York.
Lunde’s final round of 66 was good enough to hold off the challenge of former Ryder Cup player JJ Henry, who shot a sparkling 63 to secure second place.
Lunde was four strokes behind third round leader Alex Cejka going into the final round, but charged ahead with a sizzling front nine of six-under-par 30 at Atunyote Golf Club.
The German had to settle for a share of third at 15-under after closing with a 72.
Lunde was six under through nine holes after birdies at holes one, two, five,six, eight and nine.
The one blemish on his round came with a bogey four at hole 11, but a birdie two at 16 secured a six under total and a 17 under par, 271 overall score.
Henry threatened to triumph in remarkable fashion, having fired seven birdies and an eagle in his day-low round, one equalled only by Jonathan Byrd, who finished in a tie for 10th.
Henry carded birdies at holes two, five, eight, nine, an eagle at hole 12 and further birdies at holes 13, 15 and 16, but finished short.
Cejka saw his hopes of a first PGA Tour title falter with two bogeys, a double bogey and four birdies in his 72.
The German was one of five players who tied for third, with Richard S. Johnson (67) and Rory Sabbatini (68) in a tie for eighth.
Byrd was joined in 10th by DJ Trahan (65), Steve Elkington (68), Charley Hoffman (69), Woody Austin (69) and Charles Warren (70).
