Following the event’s opening round, Finau was tied for 13th place and only four strokes back from Brooks Koepka, Viktor Hovland, and Jon Rahm, who tied for first place after the first 18 holes of the tourney. Finau scored 69 for three under par on the first day.
Unfortunately for the Utahn and his fans, Thursday’s round ended up as Finau’s best day of the tournament.
With bad weather hovering over Augusta National, Finau had his worst two rounds on Friday and Saturday. Both of those days featured weather delays and round postponements.
Finau posted a round of par on Sunday and closed out the event with an even scorecard.
