Number of career victories on the PGA Tour for Taiwan’s C.T. Pan, who won the RBC Heritage on Sunday at Hilton Head Island, S.C. Pan, 27, shot 4-under 67 for a 12-under 272 total and one-stroke victory over American Matt Kuchar, who birdied the 18th hole for solo second. Pan, who played college golf at Washington, turned pro in 2015 and won twice that year on the Canadian Tour. Pan is the second Taiwanese player to win on the PGA Tour, joining T.C. Chen, who won the 1987 Los Angeles Open (scores).

Number of strokes by which Scott McCarron won the Champions Tour’s Mitsubishi Electric Classic in Duluth, Ga. McCarron steadied himself after a rocky start – a bogey and a double bogey in his first three holes – to shoot 1-under 71 for a 7-under 209 total for 54 holes at TPC Sugarloaf. It was the ninth career victory for McCarron, 53, on the 50-and-older tour. Of his three victories on the PGA Tour, McCarron won two of them at TPC Sugarloaf, in 1997 and 2001 at the now-defunct BellSouth Classic (scores).

Number of consecutive eagles made by Finland’s Toni Hakula in the second round of the Latinoamerica Tour’s Abierto de Chile. Late Friday, Hakula made a 15-foot putt for eagle-3 on the 18th hole, his ninth of the day, at Club de Golf Mapocho before play was suspended by darkness. He returned to the course the next day and eagled Nos. 1 and 2, also par 5s, by holing out on the first and sinking a 25-foot putt on the second. It is the first time on any PGA Tour-sponsored circuit – the PGA Tour, Champions, Web.com, Latinoamerica, Canada or China – that a player has made three eagles in succession. Hakula, 27, a 2014 Texas graduate who played on the Longhorns’ 2012 NCAA champions, slipped to T-16. American John Somers won the tournament when he holed a 45-foot eagle putt on the final hole (scores).

Number of playoff holes that Lanto Griffin needed to outlast local favorite Robby Shelton at the Web.com Tour’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Championship in Prattville, Ala. Griffin sank a 5-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole at the Senator Course to shoot 4-under 68 in the final round and tie Shelton, who grew up near Mobile and played college golf at Alabama, at 15-under 273. Both made pars in two consecutive replays of the par-4 18th, then matched pars on the par-4 ninth before Griffin holed a 2-foot birdie putt on the 18th to win. It was the second career victory on the Web.com Tour for Griffin, 30, who failed to keep his card last year in his rookie season on the PGA Tour (scores).

Number of career LPGA victories for Brooke Henderson, who successfully defended her title in the Lotte Championship on Saturday in Kapolei, Hawaii. Henderson, 21, tied Sandra Post for the most victories by a Canadian on the women’s tour. Mike Weir and the late George Knudson share the honor of most victories by a Canadian on the PGA Tour, also with eight. Henderson shot 2-under 70 in the final round at Ko Olina Golf Club for a 16-under 272 total and four-stroke victory over South Korea’s Eun-Hee Ji. American Nelly Korda, who shared the 54-hole lead with Henderson, faded to eighth place with a final-round 77 (scores).
