At the Sanderson Farms Championship, Gribble picked up his maiden PGA Tour victory. He began the final round at the Country Club of Jackson one shot off the pace. The tournament was wide open but Gribble put his foot to the floor on the back nine. He made birdies at the 11th, 13th, 15th, 16th and 17th holes to streak away from the pack.
Playing in just his eighth event on the circuit, the left-hander looked like a cool and composed veteran as he closed the tournament out. His victory has earned him $756,000, 300 FedExCup points and exempt status on tour through the 2018-19 season. The four-stroke win was the second largest in tournament history, trailing Frank Conner’s five-stroke win in 1988.
