PCCC winner earns $135K

Posted online

Professional golfer David Kocher broke the 72-hole Price Cutter Charity Championship record on his way to earning the Springfield tournament's top prize.

Kocher completed the course in 260 shots, 28 under par, on Sunday, according to a news release. He took home $135,000 out of a total purse of $750,000 at Highland Springs Country Club.

“I’ve been playing really well the last five or six weeks,” Kocher said in the release. "I didn’t think it was going to happen this week. I didn’t know if it was going to happen this year. I just kept sticking to my game plan and just made a lot of birdies.”

The previous record of 27-under 261 for the tournament was set by Doug LaBelle II in 2006 and tied last year by Dylan Wu.

Kocher is now the fifth player in Korn Ferry Tour history to finish an event at 28 -under par or better, according to the release.

The PGA-sanctioned Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper on the Korn Ferry Tour doubles as a fundraiser for children's charities in the Ozarks. Coming into this year's tournament, the PCCC totaled nearly $18.4 million in donations since its start in 1990, according to past reporting. The fundraising total for the tournament typically is announced later in the year.
