by Maura Hutchinson

A sunny Saturday and Sunday made the golf season even more appealing and big wins on the PGA and European Tours were the perfect icing on top of one glorious weekend! Check out all the action from Texas and Morocco below.

Andrew Landry secured his first PGA Tour win at the Valero Texas Open on Sunday. In just his 32nd start on Tour, the 30-year-old picked up a home-state win finishing with an impressive 17-under 271. Earning Landry a coveted Masters invite for 2019 and a hefty payday of $1,116,000.

With two wins already on the Tour, Landry is a fairly new face on the PGA Tour but with his latest victory he is hoping to continue to make his mark.

“We’re trying to get to the Tour Championship this year, and that’s kind of my goal still,” Landry told reporters after his win. Adding, “We still have a lot of work to do, but this will definitely help.”

Making his Sunday even a little sweeter – Landry’s wife and newborn son were there to help celebrate his important milestone.
