He only made one more, at No. 17, coming into the clubhouse. That putt couldn’t have come at a better time, though. It gave him control heading to the final hole.

Tyler McCumber, who started the day six shots back, had added his name to the leading group when he holed a long putt for birdie on the final hole for a closing 66 to also become a threat. He ended up in solo second as Hughes ultimately finished alone in third after a bogey at No. 18.
