PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Cameron Tringale earned a dubious distinction this week at the Valspar Championship.

By finishing tied for third with Viktor Hovland and earning $407,100, Tringale became the answer to the question: Which player has won the most money without ever winning a PGA Tour event.

The 33-year-old Tringale entered the week $37,390 behind Englishman Brian Davis, who had previously held the distinction with earnings of $13,374,228. Tringale now tops the list with $13,743,938.

When asked if he was aware that he was on the verge of setting the mark, he said simply, “No.”

Tringale finished a career-best second at the 2015 Zurich Classic of New Orleans and tied for second twice, at the 2014 Northern Trust and the 2016 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He’s also recorded a third-place finish at the RSM Classic in November.

He did win a silly-season event, the 2015 QBE Shootout with Jason Day.

Tringale, who turned pro in 2009, entered the week No. 89 in the world and ranked No. 149 on the all-time Tour money list.

He has made 298 starts, the most on Tour without a win since 2009.

Tringale signed for a 3-under 68 on Sunday and a 72-hole total of 13-under 271.
