Peter Malnati ’09 Wins Valspar Championship

PGA: Valspar Championship - Third Round

Former University of Missouri men’s golf standout Peter Malnati ’09 claimed his second PGA Tour victory on Sunday, finishing first at the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Malnati carded a final-round 68 to claim the title by two strokes. He finished 12-under over the four-day tournament (66-71-68-67) as he earned his second tour victory during his career and first since the 2015 Sanderson Farms Championship.

A four-year standout with the Tigers from 2005 to 2009, Malnati was a two-time Academic All-American at Mizzou and qualified for the NCAA Championship as an individual during his senior campaign. He placed 21st during the regional round with five of his nine career top-10 finishes during his final season in 2008-09.
