The Weekend Round Up – The weekend after The Open

The Weekend Round Up – The weekend after The Open

The Weekend after a major can sometimes feel like a bit of an anti-climax. After Smith’s final day charge and the drama of The Open, this weekend had a serious hill to climb. The PGA Tour arrived in Minnesota, at TPC Twin Cities, for the 3M Open, The DP World Tour rocked up in Southport for The Cazoo Classic and the LPGA launched their 4th Major of the year in France. A packed weekend of golf for sure with titles up for grabs, so let’s review the action.

Tony Finau wins by three to win the 3M Open

It was a weekend of 3’s for Tony Finau. The American won his third PGA Tour Title, by three shots at TPC Twin Cities. Currently sitting comfortably in the top 20 in the world, Finau carded a final round of four under par, with six birdies. PGA Tour veteran Sung-Jae Im and Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo both finished the weekend at 14-under par, unable to match the pace set by Finau. The American’s win wasn’t without fortune after his tee shot on 17 bounced off the grandstand, managing to stay dry in the process. Finau claims he “called bank” and the bank was open for his third PGA title.

Having promised his daughter a trophy, Ramsay will “remember this for the rest of his life”.
