Gligic collects first Tour victory in Panama

Michael Gligic entered this week's Panama Championship with just one career top-10 finish on the Tour. Now, the 29-year-old Canadian is a Tour champion.

Gligic, who earned his Tour card for the first time via Q-School last December, shot 5-under 65 Sunday at Panama Golf Club to climb six spots on the leaderboard to 8 under and win by a shot over China's Xinjun Zhang, who closed in 66.

The Ontario native made six birdies in his final round, including three straight, at Nos. 9-11. Gligic rose to No. 2 on the Tour points list with his victory.
