St. Louis, MO – Two time Metropolitan Open Champion (2008, 2009) and 2010 Old Warson Cup champion Scott Langley came from behind this weekend at the Panama Championship on the Web.com Tour to earn his first professional victory. Langley was an amateur won he won the back-to-back Open titles in 2008-09.
There was a lot of interest by me personally in the Web.com event as locals Langley and Adam Long started the final round in the top 10. Also, multiple time participants in the Metropolitan Open, Ed Loar and Chris Thompson were having good weeks. Loar was in the final group of the day, 2 shots back of the leader. When I finally checked in on the leaderboard, Langley was into the back 9 and had a 2-shot lead. Needless to say, my interest peaked even more and I probably refreshed the PGA Tour app on my phone more than ever in a single day.
It was also exciting to follow Langley on his back nine as I knew the holes of the Panama Golf Club having worked the Web.com Tour event as an official 3 years ago so I was familiar with the golf course. It is a difficult course as was evident by the 7-under winning score by Langley.
The victory vaulted Langley to #3 on the Web.com money list and positions himself for a excellent shot at earning back his PGA Tour card with a Top 25 finish on the season. Read more about Langley’s performance in the link below from the Web.com website.
