Struggling Finau Commits’ To Dell Technologies Match Play
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah’s Tony Finau has committed to this week’s Dell Technologies Match Play in an effort to find form weeks before The Masters.
Finau, 32, has missed the cut in three of his previous four tournaments. His form to start the year has not been ideal. It has been a drastic change from just a year ago when he went on the best run of his career that involved back-to-back second-place finishes at The Farmers Insurance Open and The Genesis Invitational.
According to the Official World Golf Rankings, Finau is now ranked 23rd in the world despite starting the year at 15th. The eight dropped spots reflect the poor form Finau has been experiencing.
So, in an effort to find form before the biggest golf tournament of the year; The Masters, Finau will play this week in a Match Play event.
