SALT LAKE CITY – Utahn and PGA Tour golfer Tony Finau struggled and finished near the bottom of the leaderboard at the 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship.

The FedEx St. Jude Championship was held at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee from August 10-13.

After opening the tournament with a round of 67 or three under par, Finau struggled on Friday by shooting 73. The local golfer bounced back to start the weekend with a round of 69 on Saturday. However, Finau struggled again on Sunday and closed out the event with a round of 73.

During his fourth and final round, Finau recorded three birdies, four bogeys, and one double bogey.

Finau ended up finishing at two over par, good for 64th place on the leaderboard. Only six golfers had a worse week at TPC Southwind.

Lucas Glover won the event after a playoff with Patrick Cantlay.
