SPRINGFIELD, Illinois — Xinjun Zhang birdied the third hole of a sudden-death playoff to top Dylan Wu for his second victory of the season at the Lincoln Land Championship presented by LRS. Zhang carded a final-round 6-under 65 to reach 15-under for the tournament before eventually closing out the win.

“This confirms that we belong out here and even on the PGA TOUR,” said Zhang, who has already locked up his PGA TOUR card for the 2019-20 season. “Things that I’ve been working on like ball-striking and putting all went well today. It puts me in a great mindset going to the TOUR next year. It’s not very often that you get to be in a playoff going for the win. Being in that environment is a great learning experience, feeling the emotions and the intensity of it.”
