CLYMER, New York — What a difference a week makes.

Argentinian Nelson Ledesma entered the week at Peek’n Peak Resort in Clymer, New York, at No. 101 on the Regular Season money list. He’d missed eight of 14 cuts and had picked up just one top-25 (Panama Championship, T11). Rather than chasing a spot in The 25, Ledesma was merely hoping to retain his Tour card and earn a spot in the Tour Finals.

Now, just four days later, Ledesma is a Tour winner, finishing the LECOM Health Challenge at 22-under 266 to best Sebastian Muñoz and Kyle Jones by one stroke.
