LEHI, Utah -- Nicholas Lindheim won the Utah Championship on Sunday for his first Tour title and a likely spot next season on the PGA Tour.The 31-year-old Californian closed with a 3-under 69 at Thanksgiving Point to finish at 15-under 269 and beat playing partner J.J. Spaun by two strokes.Its amazing. Its beyond belief, Lindheim said. I dont even know. Its awesome. Im very happy, and my family will be even happier.Lindheim earned $117,000 to jump from 83rd to 14th on the money list with $153,694, with the top 25 at the end of the regular season earning PGA Tour cards.

He took a two-stroke lead to the par-4 18th and matched Spaun with a bogey.Honestly, I just tried to focus on breathing -- that was my most important thing out there today, Lindheim said. Regardless of what anyone else did, were playing against the golf course. You cant control anything other than what you do, and I just kept that in the back of my mind. Lots of deep breaths, lots of thoughts of my family and knowing that this isnt make or break. This is something I chose to do. With that in the back of my mind, it really took the pressure off.Spaun had a 70. The Canadian tour money leader last season, he earned $70,200 to jump from 15th to sixth on the money list with $213,820 -- more than enough to wrap up a PGA Tour card.Its still surreal, Spaun said. Like I knew I could do it, just taking each week as it came. But to finally to get there and to feel that Im locked up and not having to worry about being on the bubble at Portland, its just a great feeling. Its going to totally free me up the rest of the year. Its just going to be about going out and having fun now.Xander Schauffele was third at 12 under after a 65. Austin Cook was another stroke back after a 69. Derek Rivers Patriots Jersey. This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.
