Ben Crane Wins Headed to The Masters

4U client Ben Crane won the 3rd PGA Tour event of his career today. He fired a final round 2 under par at The Farmer's Insurance Open on the Torrey Pines South Course in Lajolla, California. Ben defeated Michael Sim, Brandt Snedeker and Marc Leishman by one shot for the biggest victory of his career. This ended a 5 year drought without a win. His 2 previous wins were in Atlanta and Milwaukee. Ben made 2 birdie putts over 40 feet in route to this victory. Torrey Pines is one of the toughest courses on tour and was host to the U.S. Open in 2008 when Tiger Woods defeated Rocco Mediate in a Monday play-off.

This win changes Crane's outlook on the season. He will now be going back to Augusta National and The Masters. His victory should also put him inside the top 60 and qualify him for the Match Play. He is also now qualified to open the season next year in Maui at the SBS Championship.
