    Nate Lashley completes unlikely wire-to-wire victory in US PGA Tour in Detroit

    The last player into the field, Nate Lashley has completed an unlikely and emotional wire-to-wire victory in the US PGA Tour's tournament in Detroit


    The 36-year-old has won his maiden top-level title by six shots, 15 years after his parents and girlfriend were killed in a plane crash.

    He dabbled in real estate after graduating from the University of Arizona, quit playing professional golf several years ago and resumed playing in the PGA Tour's minor leagues.

    Lashley says having his friends and family there he can't ask for more and is ready to celebrate with them.

    Kiwi Danny Lee finished in a tie for 21st.
