LAKE OCONEE, Ga. -- Scott Hebert won the PGA Professional National Championship on Sunday at Reynolds Plantation, closing with a 4-under 68 at Great Waters for a one-stroke victory over Sonny Skinner.
The 39-year-old Hebert, a former Ferris State player based at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Michigan, had a 12-under 276 total to top the 20 qualifiers for the PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in August.
Hebert earned $75,000 and also received an exemption into the next five PGA Professional National Championships, a spot on the 2009 PGA Cup Team and exemptions into six PGA Tour events over a 12-month period.
Skinner, the 47-year-old PGA director of golf at River Pointe Golf Club in Albany, Ga., shot a 69. Kyle Flinton, 42, a three-time PGA National Assistant Professional champion from Quail Creek in Oklahoma City, had a 72 to finish third at 8 under.
