MIAMI: Austin Eckroat won the weather-delayed Cognizant Classic by three strokes on Monday to capture his first career PGA Tour title in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Eckroat was 15 under with a one-stroke lead through seven holes Sunday when play was suspended due to darkness at PGA National’s Champion course. He added three birdies and a bogey on the back nine Monday morning to card a 4-under 67 for a winning score of 17-under 267. Eckroat pocketed $1.62 million following his 50th career start, his top payday by far on the circuit. “This has always been my dream to win on the PGA Tour.”
