DETROIT – Tony Finau became the first PGA Tour player to win back-to-back regular-season events in three years with the Rockets Mortgage Classic on Sunday at Detroit Golf Club.
Finau shot 5-over 67 for a five-shot victory and a tournament record 26-under 262. Taylor Pendrith (72), Patrick Cantlay (66) and Cameron Young (68) tied for second.
Finn is closing in on his fourth career win, his third in less than a year. He won the 3M Open in Minnesota last week, going three over five. Brendan Todd was the last to win two straight in the regular season, which he did in 2019.
Finau, a Salt Lake City native of Tongan-Samoan heritage, began his streak of success last August at the Northern Trust, where he claimed his first win in five years and 142 PGA Tour starts.
BEDMINSTER, NJ – Henrik Stenson’s decision to captain the Ryder Cup paid off, as the Swede won the LIV Golf Invitational in Bedminster and took home more than $4 million for three days of action.
Stenson opened a three-shot lead heading into the third and final round at Trump National with a 20-foot birdie putt and never led anyone closer than two shots the rest of the way.
With Matthew Wolfe (64) and Dustin Johnson closing the final hole with a 68, he closed out a two-shot victory with a 2-under 69.
IRVINE, Scotland — Japan’s Ayaka Furey reeled off six straight birdies midway through her round to rally from a four-shot deficit for a 10-under 62 to win her first LPGA Tour title at the Women’s Scottish Open.
A seven-time winner on the LPGA in Japan – once as an amateur – Furu became the second rookie to win on the LPGA Tour this year, and she did it in style at Donald Links.
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – American Sean Crocker held off a strong challenge from Eddie Pepperell to claim his first European Tour title with a wire-to-wire win at the Hero Open on Sunday.
