Brett Drewitt


SPRINGFIELD, Illinois — For Australians, Father’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of September. Australian Brett Drewitt celebrated his own Father’s Day with his first victory in his 116th career start at the Lincoln Land Championship presented by LRS.

“I was talking to my parents last night and I was kind of thinking about how cool it would be to win on Father’s Day,” said Drewitt, a father to his 18-month-old Brady. “I didn’t say anything to my parents because lately my words have been coming back to bite me, but it’s a surreal feeling.”

At 19-under 265, Drewitt edged a trio of players by one stroke. In the end, he carded five birdies and two bogeys on Sunday for a closing 3-under 68, but perhaps more importantly, he parred his final two holes. The par-3 17th (215 yards) and the par-4 18th (451 yards) played as the two toughest holes on the course.
