Napier Claims 50th Career Pro Win While Tapley Nabs His First

by Idris Garcia November 24, 2020

A pair of Prodigy team members welcomed in the holiday week by collecting milestone wins over the weekend. Dutch Napier returned to the site of his first professional win in Owensboro, Ky., to grab his 50th, and Sean Tapley took down his first in Weaverville, Calif.

Napier took a five stroke lead in round one with the hot score and ultimately won by seven. He rattled off a 26-under par 136 over the two round event for the win.

Tapley put down a 7-under in round one and built up on that by a couple of strokes to shoot a 9-under in the second round. His 16-under par two round total stood above the rest by two strokes, as Tapley was able to raise his first Open trophy.

Yutaro Sakai also had a big win over the weekend in Funai-gun, Kyoto, Japan, at The 16th Kyoto Classic. Sakai battled hard over two days and three rounds plus semifinals and a finals round. He made up five strokes in the finals to roar back into a tie for first, taking the win in a playoff.

Jacob Henson collected his first win of the year in Belden, Miss., at the Trace State Throwdown. There, he posted a 10-under 113 over two rounds to win by two. He also erased a large deficit, making up eight strokes with his hot score in round two to erase a six stroke hole after round one.
