Tony Finau Concludes The Open At Five-Under-Par
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Tony Finau has concluded The Open Championship at five-under-par and is good enough for a T16 with the leaders still to play in round four.
Finau, 31, struggled in the third round and shot a two-over-par to essentially eliminate himself from the competition ahead of Sunday. On Friday evening, Finau was positioned nicely at four-under-par and in contention. However, the third round on Saturday ruined all of his previous good work.
Nonetheless, Finau concluded his Open Championship campaign in good form shooting a three-under-par round at Royal St. George’s Golf Club.
His round consisted of six birdies and just three birdies. It was the most birdies in a round at The Open all week for Finau who saved his best for last.
Finau hit 64 percent of fairways, a remarkable 83 percent of greens, and averaged 1. 72 putts per green. His 83 percent of greens in regulation ranks as the best statistic for him this week.
Finau found more fairways than not, hit a lot of greens in regulation, but averaged just higher than the rest of the field when it comes to putts per green.
The Chasing Pack
The field is chasing Collin Morikawa who has a two-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen and Jordan Spieth with nine holes remaining.
Morikawa is hoping to win his first Claret Jug in his first attempt following his debut PGA Championship victory late last year.
