David Lipsky notches another continent on his belt

American posts 4-stroke victory in Korn Ferry Tour’s TPC San Antonio Challenge at the Canyons, adding North America to Asia, Europe and Africa on his world conquest in pro golf

4: Number of continents on which American David Lipsky has won tournaments on major professional tours as he cruised to a four-stroke victory Sunday at the Korn Ferry Tour’s TPC San Antonio Challenge at the Canyons. Lipsky, a native Californian who will turn 32 on Tuesday, shot 6-under 66 at TPC San Antonio for a 25-under 263 total and his first victory in North America since his college days at Northwestern, where he was the 2010 Big Ten champion. Lipsky, who medaled in the 2012 Asian Tour Qualifying School, won in Cambodia in his third start on the Asian Tour and added European Tour titles in 2014 in Switzerland and 2018 in South Africa. Lipsky also won on the same day as another La Cañada (Calif.) High School alumnus, Collin Morikawa, who won the PGA Tour's Workday Charity Open, though Morikawa is nine years younger. Lipsky had made only three cuts in seven previous starts on the Korn Ferry Tour this season, though he had some momentum entering the week after three consecutive rounds in the 60s led to a T-17 result at last week's TPC Colorado Championship. Canada’s Taylor Pendrith (66) finished second in San Antonio at 21-under 267, followed by American Paul Haley II (64) and France’s Paul Barjon (70), who tied for third at 20-under 268 (scores).
