Tony Finau Continues Search For Second PGA Victory After Yet Another Disappointing Sunday
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Tony Finau shot a four-under-par final round to eventually lose by four shots at The American Express.
Finau began the day tied for the lead at fifteen-under-par and began his final round with back-to-back birdies on holes one and two. One more birdie fell on the front nine and he made the turn at three-under-par.
However, the back nine took its toll on Finau who made bogeys on 11 and 14 and consequently eliminating his name from contention.
The wind started to leave the sails on the par 5, 11th hole when Finau hit his second shot into the water after snap hooking a fairway driver.
On the same hole, Finau missed a four-foot putt to save par. It was his second missed putt inside four feet on the day.
Ultimately, Finau was beaten by Si Woo Kim who torched the golf course with a final round score of eight-under-par. Kim was deserving of victory.
Finau continues to chase his second career PGA Tour victory. His lone win came back in 2016 when he won the Puerto Rico Open, however, only one winner of the Puerto Rico Open has gone on to win another PGA Tour event. Viktor Hovland, who won the Puerto Rico Open in February of 2020 also won the Mayakoba Classic in December of the same year.
The pressure is building on Finau who is struggling to prove his doubters wrong. Over the years, Finau has been in contention on multiple occasions. However, he has had a tremendously hard time closing tournaments and securing victories.
The American Express was another learning curve for Finau who hopes to secure his second career PGA victory in 2021.
