Lamar University graduate and former Port Neches-Groves High School standout Chris Stroud earned his first career victory on the PGA Tour over the weekend as he captured the Barracuda Championship.

Stroud, a two-time All-American and four-time Southland Conference champion during his time at Lamar, won a three-way playoff with Greg Owen and Richy Werenski to claim the title.

“Eleven years I’ve waited for that,” Stroud said when he was introduced as the champion. “It’s a dream come true.”
