Greensboro, USA :

Ace golfer Arjun Atwal has become the first Indian to win on the PGA Tour. The Orlando-based Indian won the Wyndham Championship by one stroke and earned his maiden PGA Tour title.

The 37-year-old, who started the final round with a three-stroke lead, secured victory by sinking a pressure-packed putt for par from seven feet at the final hole.

Atwal has won on the European, Asian and nationwide tours but he has been through some rough times during the past few years.

This success means Atwal will have a two-year exemption on the US tour.
