BEACHWOOD, Ohio — Canada’s Corey Conners has earned his PGA Tour card.

Conners qualified for the PGA on Sunday when he finished in 11th place at the Tour’s DAP Championship.

The Listowel, Ont., native shot a 1-under 69 in the final round and finished 4 under for the tournament.

An 11th-place showing guarantees Conners will finish the season as one of the 25 golfers with PGA Tour privileges for 2017-18.

The DAP Championship is the third of four Tour Final events. Conners has come in the top 30 of all three.

His best finish this season came at the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic where he came fifth.

The 25-year-old has three top 10 finishes this year on the Tour.

Nicholas Lindheim made a downhill, 35-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to win the DAP Championship and regain his PGA Tour card.

Lindheim shot a 1-over 71 to join Rob Oppenheim (67) and Chesson Hadley (69) in the playoff.
