What happened at the 2019 Puerto Rico Open?

A year ago, Martin Trainer had no playing status on tour. He entered a Monday qualifier for the Web.com Tour’s El Bosque Mexico Championship last year and survived a play-off to get in. He went on to win that week.

It handed him a handful of starts on the PGA Tour for this season. Not that it’s been plain sailing for the American. So far his record reads T60, MC, MC, MC, MC, T73, MC, T28.

And now you can add ‘1’ to that sequence after victory at the Puerto Rico Open.

Starting the final day two behind 54-hole leader Aaron Baddeley, Trainer was 3-under through 5 before back-to-back bogeys at 6 and 7 looked to have derailed his challenge.

But further gains at the 9th and 10th put him right back in it and birdies at 15 and 18, both par 5, handed him a three-shot victory and an invite to the Masters in April.

Trainer, who started the week as World No. 286, is likely to jump to around 130 in the rankings.

And if that isn’t enough, Golf Channel researcher Justin Ray revealed that Trainer’s great, great grandfather, is Eli Whitney, inventor of the cotton gin.
