Isaiah Salinda wins Korn Ferry Tour’s Panama Championship by a whopping eight shots

Isaiah Salinda entered the final round of the Korn Ferry Tour’s Panama Championship tied for the lead at 7 under with Wil Bateman.

By Sunday afternoon, Salinda was hoisting the trophy after winning by a staggering eight shots. It’s the largest margin of victory on the circuit in seven years.

Salinda bogeyed the third hole but then birdied Nos. 4, 6 and 11 before an eagle on 12. He then punctuated his win with a birdie on the closing hole to get to 12 under and post a 65 to seal first professional victory.

Bateman shot a 73 and tied for second at 4 under alongside Keenan Huskey and Trent Phillips.

Salinda once shot a 62 at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. He was a member of the 2019 Stanford team that won the NCAA championship.
