Detroit King Tony Fino achieves the double!

A week after his success at the 3M Open, Tony Finau won the Rocket Mortgage Classic this Sunday. He is the first PGA TOUR player to win consecutive regular season championships in 3 years.

Tony Vino It was excellent again this Sunday in Detroit golf club. Sure, he conceded his first and only championship ghost at age 11, but the American hit a six-bird to return a very strong 67 (-5), enough to end the event with an impressive score of -26. Create a new record for the event.

If he had to wait 1975 days between his first and second wins, so much so that observers questioned his ability to finish, he only had to wait seven short days between his third and fourth wins.

You have to go back to 2019 to find evidence of a regular season succession and two consecutive successes from week to day Brendon Todd.

Two weeks of madness

In the ninth cloud for 15 days, Tony Finau finished his championship with a touching interview in which he explained that what fills him with happiness is being able to “He showed his kids (5) that they can see him lose but also win. That’s what makes you a champion.”

Over the last 8 laps Finau did not lace and restricted the high laps: 67, 68, 65, 67, 64, 66, 65, 66.

On the 144 holes played, he totaled 47 (roughly 1 bird for every 3 holes), 4 bogey waived, touched 89 of 112 passes, and took 126 out of 144 in regulation! Simply mind boggling.

Good news for his opponents, the 13th seed on the New World has decided not to appear at the start of the upcoming tournament in North Carolina.

Maybe this will allow Canadians Taylor Pendrithin full swing since returning from injury (4 months off due to a cracked rating), to score his first PGA Tour victory over his record.

That’s it for me. Every day since I’ve been golfing, all I think about is joining the PGA Tour. I’m touched tonight, it’s a dream, a consequence.

Taylor Pendrith gets out of the way

Co-leader before the final lap, Pendrith couldn’t keep up with Finau’s frenetic pace. In the mid-tournament lead and joined by the American on the eve of the final round, the rookie from Ontario struggled only 8 passes.

However, his equal card allows him to retain second place. This is his career best result and his third best 15 in 3 tournaments since his return to competition.

Patrick Cantlay ends well

The Canadian shares the second step of the podium with other players: The Great Cameron Young who scores the seventh podium of the season (best total with Scotty Scheffler) and who will also have to wait before lifting the trophy, and Patrick Cantlay.

The 2021 FedEx Cup winner started his day with a fanfare with five birds in 8 holes but was stopped by two ghosts. A 14-year-old eagle and a 17-year-old jumper allow him to sign his second straight card of 66 and sign him for his second place of the season. Cantlay climbed to fifth in the FedEx rankings two weeks before the playoffs began.

Stefan Jaeger saves himself, impressing Joohyung Kim

follow them simultaneously Stefan Geiger. The German signs the best performance of his career with his first Top 5. A result that guarantees him a 125th place in the overall standings and thus retains his energy for next season.

Another player guaranteed to play at the highest level next year is 20-year-old South Korean Joohyung Kim. On Sunday, the Seoul native, who was called by the organizers because he is not a member of the PGA Tour, returned to the record (63) Detroit Golf Club to finish in the top ten.

In third place in the Genesis Scottish Open, he has already scored enough points in 8 tournaments to finish the season with a total above 125 in the FedEx rating.

“That’s it for me. Every day since I’ve been golfing, all I think about is joining the PGA Tour. Tonight I’m touched: it’s a dream and an achievement.” Joohyung Kim said after his amazing fourth tour.

Barjon is back on the wall

On the contrary, after his last wound, Paul Bargon More than ever in great difficulty. 157th place in the FedEx Cup on the eve of the last tournament of the regular season, after the withdrawal of the LIV “Rebels” rating, the Frenchman is doomed to this achievement for maintaining full playing rights in 2023.
