Tim O’Neal has been playing on the Advocates Professional Golf Association Tour since its inception in 2010 and has long been one of the better players on the circuit. On Tuesday, O’Neal added to his lengthy resume with his win at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. This is his first APGA win of 2022.

O’Neal carded five birdies on his front nine, ultimately pulling away from the rest of the field winning with a final score of 9 under.

The 49-year-old hopes to one day play on the PGA Tour Champions, as his 50th birthday is approaching August 3.

“I was in a good spot confidence-wise coming in,” O’Neal said after his round. “At the end of the day, if I can make putts, I’m in good shape.”

He was the runner-up at the APGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open Invitational a few weeks ago played at Torrey Pines. However, the winner, Patrick Newcomb, passed the Korn Ferry Tour exemption he earned with the victory to O’Neal. Newcomb is already a member of the KFT.

“In my mind, I still have a way to go,” O’Neal said when asked about possibly playing on the Champions tour down the road. “I’m just trying to get better every day so I can compete.”
