Kevin Hall erases six-shot deficit to win first APGA Tour event since 2018 at TPC Deere Run


Kevin Hall made golf look easy on Tuesday.

The Ohio State grad – winner of the individual title at the 2004 Big Ten Championship – shot a bogey-free, 8-under 63 to finish at 6 under and earn the win at the APGA Tour Deere Run at the TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. It’s Hall’s first APGA Tour win since 2018 at the APGA Tour Chicago.

“I’m just trying to stay calm and play my own game,” said Hall, 2016’s APGA Tour Player of the Year who was left with permanent hearing loss at just two years old following treatment for meningitis. “I try to take what the golf course gives me each and every round. In other words, I’m keeping things simple.”

Hall earned $7,500 for his efforts, which included coming back from a six-stroke deficit to earn a four-shot win thanks to five birdies on his back nine.

Kamaiu Johnson, Mahindra Lutchman and Marcus Byrd all finished T-2 at 2 under, with DeVaughn Robinson and Michael Herrera rounding out the top five at even par.

Next up for the APGA Tour is the Billy Horschel APGA Tour Invitational presented by Cisco, July 29-31 at The Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.
