Scott Stallings walked away with the True South Classic title after claiming a two-shot victory over Jason Bohn.

The 27-year-old started the day with a one-shot lead, but he hit a final round four-under-par 68 to finish with a 24-under 264 – a tournament record at Annandale Golf Club – to secure the win.

Bohn carded a five-under 67 to put the pressure on the overnight leader, but Stallings made five birdies – including ones on the 16th and 17th – to stay clear.

His only major mistake on the final day was at the 14th after he hit his tee shot far to the right and ended up dropping a shot.

“It made that tee shot on 18 a lot easier,” said Stallings after securing his second victory on the PGA Tour.

He added: “Obviously, it’s a special week. Anytime you win on the PGA Tour it’s special. A lot of things and people went into winning this tournament and I’m very thankful.”

Billy Horschel started the day in second place, but he carded a 71 on Sunday to finish four shots off the pace with Bud Cauley another shot behind.

“He played really well, swung the club well, made the putts when he needed to make the putts, and that’s the way you win,” Horschel said of Stallings.
