Lucas Herbert battles elements, holds off challengers for first PGA Tour win at 2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship



Paradise was anything but beautiful on Sunday.

Inclement weather in the forecast forced the the Butterfield Bermuda Championship’s final-round tee times to be pushed up in the morning, but that doesn’t mean players were in the clear. High winds and intermittent rains battered the field all day at Port Royal Golf Club, where four players were within a shot of the lead on the final hole.

After laying up with an iron off the tee, Lucas Herbert lipped-out for birdie on the 18th after sticking his approach shot to finish at 15 under and win for the first time on the PGA Tour. Herbert shot a 2-under 69 to hold off clubhouse leader Patrick Reed and Danny Lee, who finished T-2 at 14 under. Patrick Rodgers finished fourth at 13 under after a 1-under 70. Scott Stallings put together the round of the day with a bogey-free 9-under 62, three shots better than the second best effort, a 6-under 65 from Reed.
