Austin Cook claimed his first PGA Tour victory, in only his 14th start on Tour, and has shot up to third in the FedEx Cup rankings.

The 26-year old American fired a final round 67 to win by four shots over runner-up J.J. Spaun. The rookie has set high expectations for himself, saying, “My goal coming into the year was to win Rookie of the Year, and I'm on a good path so far."

Key to Cook’s success, and one of the biggest reasons why he only carded two bogeys during the tournament, was his laser-like accuracy off the tee. During the week he managed to find the fairway 85.71% of the time using his Ping G400 LST driver.
