Adam Long who played alongside Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson and Canadian Adam Hadwin, wasn’t even aware that he was in a tie for the lead when he hit his approach shot to the last hole. The 31 year old rookie playing in his sixth event on the US PGA Tour, has won the Desert Classic golf tournament at La Quitna in Southern California

It was only after his ball ended up on the green that he asked his caddie to confirm that he was joint leader.

He then proceeded to roll in his five meter putt for birdie to claim a one stroke victory over Mickelson and Hadwin.

He carded a seven-under-par 65 in the final round, for a four-round total of 262, 26 under par.
