BROUSSARD, Louisiana (AP) — Kelly Kraft won the Louisiana Open for his first Web.com Tour title, closing with a 6-under 65 in windy conditions for a one-stroke victory at Le Triomphe.
Kraft, the 26-year-old former SMU player who won the 2012 U.S. Amateur, had a 14-under 270 total. He earned $99,000 to jump to sixth on the money list with $113,414.
“It’s been a while. It feels good to win again,” Kraft said. “The back nine is harder and everyone seems to back up. After nine holes, I thought if I can post a number it may work out. Toward the end I was just trying to make birdies.”

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Dawie van der Walt won the Chile Classic for his first Web.com Tour title, closing with a birdie for a 6-under 65 and a two-stroke victory.
The 32-year-old South African finished at 21-under 263 at Mapocho and earned $108,000. He won two European Tour events in South Africa in 2013.
“It’s very sweet,” van der Walt said. “It’s been a long time coming. ... It was a combination of things. I hit a lot of shots close. Sometimes you hit good shots and they just don’t end up close. I hit my irons really good and a lot of them were close this week.”
He nearly skipped the tournament after finishing the European Tour’s South African Swing.

ORLANDO, Florida (Doug Ferguson/AP) — John Peterson never had to worry about a sophomore slump. At just about every level, his struggles started much sooner.
“Some guys get it right away,” Peterson said. “Others don’t.”
His rookie season on the PGA Tour was so bad that Peterson made only seven cuts and finished No. 179 on the FedEx Cup.
Just like that, he was back to the Web.com Tour Finals and four tournaments away from heading back to the minors.
