Victor Hovland (23) played a great round of golf during the Tour Championship on Sunday – and finished in a profitable fifth after a very exciting finish.
On the eighteenth and final hole, he was in an uncomfortable position and had to pass some nearby trees to hit the green and prepare himself for an eagle fling.
The fight was over and Eurosport commentators were excited.
However, the hitter himself shone too far to the right, but he hit the next jumper and finished the round at five under par – thus 14 overall.
Not everyone finished the Tour, but Hovland ended up joint fifth with Xander Schauffle. Hovland received 19.5 million prize money for this achievement.
It was also exciting in the battle for victory: Patrick Cantlay took the win by one stroke less than Jon Ram after an intense finish.
Only the world’s top 30 this season made it to the weekend’s championship. In Fate were also the biggest cash prizes of the season. The winner alone can win $15 million – just over 130 million kroner.
Victor Hovland wrapped up the PGA Tour with a Tour Championship with the rest of the world’s elite on Sunday night. The Norwegian can look back with pride at his accomplishments on the tour over the past year.
Hovland won one championship, finished in the top ten seven times, and scored around 62.5 million crowns on the tour. His victory on Sunday secured a fifth place in the FedEx Cup.
Hovland fell off the rolls during Saturday’s run of the Tour Championship, but she ran brilliantly on Sunday. The 23-year-old impressed with three birds in the first half of the round, and played with them until fifth.
Hovland: – I wasn’t quite ahead
– It’s on the hook there, the Ekeberg Express, it looked like Eurosport commentator Henrik Bjørnstad when Hovland lowered a birdie on the eighth hole.
Hovland probably saw a great position and a good amount of money when he started in the second half of the tour. There he continued the great match.
The Norwegian star played really well on the green and probably put the Day 4 birdie on the 13th hole. On hole 16 came the first and only bogey on the round, but a birdie on the next hole made him respond.
