Cameron Percy 595

VICTORIA’S Cameron Percy will likely be back on the US PGA Tour after netting his first win on the secondary Tour.

The 40 year old birded the final hole of the 2014 Price Cutter Charity Championship at Highlands Springs Country Club in Missouri for a one-stroke victory.

Percy carded a 68 on Sunday and finished at 21 to take the US$121,500 first-place prize money and move to 12th on the regular season money list, which will almost certainly see him return to the regular tour next season.

“It feels unbelievable,” Percy said. “I’ve been playing well for a while. To get out with a win feels fantastic.”

It was Percy’s first Tour victory in his 131st starts, though he has finished runner-up six times previously.

He will now take a fortnight off to move house in the US and freshen up for the Tour Final Series that begins in a couple of weeks.

Percy last played on the regular tour in 2013, when he competed in 21 events. His best finish on the US PGA Tour was a second placing in 2010, when he last had full tour status.
