KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WDEF) — Baylor School and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga graduate Stephen Jaeger won his fourth Tour tournament Sunday in Knoxville.

Jaeger made the cut at the Knoxville Open right on the number at two under. Then he carded back-to-back 64s Saturday and Sunday to win the open at 16 under — three shots ahead of the rest of the field.

Jaeger hopes this win will help propel his PGA Tour play the rest of the year.

“I told my fiancee that I just needed a little bit of momentum this week to just get going on the PGA Tour,” Jaeger said. “I haven’t really played that good this year. I think I did that. And I think a win is probably the biggest momentum that you can get.”
