What’s in the Bag: Patton Kizzire Edges Rickie Fowler to Win OHL Classic at Mayakoba




Patton Kizzire withstood a late charge by Rickie Fowler to claim his first PGA Tour title at the weather-challenged OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Kizzire played steady golf throughout 36 holes on Sunday, shooting 66 and 67 for a 19-under finish that edged Fowler by a stroke.

“Rickie made me work hard,” Kizzire said.

“We gave it a run, kept Patton honest,” Fowler said, “but he earned it out there today.”

Who is Patton Kizzire?

He is a tall (6 feet 5 inches) 31-year-old product of Auburn University who turned professional in 2008. He spent several years on the Web.com Tour, winning once at the 2015 Utah Championship. This, his first PGA Tour win, came in start No. 62. Now Kizzire can look forward to a two-year tour exemption and the opportunity to tee it up in major championships such as the Masters next April.

Kizzire uses Titleist equipment. Here’s a look at his setup.
