COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Tour Team member Bronson La'Cassie turned his lifelong PGA TOUR dream into reality this weekend, winning the 2013 Cox Classic in dramatic fashion to secure his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card. La'Cassie earns his first ever PGA TOUR playing privileges by virtue of his Top 25 finish on the 2013 Web.com Tour Money List.
La'Cassie birdied the 71st and 72nd holes to secure his spot in a sudden death playoff, firing a tournament total 21-under par. La'Cassie completed the victory by tapping in his TOUR B330-S for par on the third playoff hole and earned $144,000, vaulting himself from 33rd into 6th place on the final 2013 Web.com Regular Season Money List.
"Bridgestone would like to offer a well-deserved congratulations to Bronson on a clutch-performance in Omaha," said Dan Murphy, EVP of Sales and Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc.
