Ahn misses top 10 by four strokes… and earns second PGA victory in eight years

Byung-hoon Ahn (32-CJ Logistics) missed out on a top-10 finish at the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour’s Charles Schwab Challenge ($8.7 million).

Ahn carded two birdies and six bogeys for a 4-over 74 in the final round of the tournament at Colonial Country Club (par 70, 7,209 yards) in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, on Monday (Sept. 29).

With a final total of 1-under par 279, Ahn finished the tournament in a tie for 21st place alongside Carson Young, Kramer Hickok (USA) and Ryan Fox (NZL).

After posting top-10 finishes in rounds one through three of the tournament, Ahn faltered in the final round, denying him his third top-10 finish of the season.

Ahn got off to a shaky start with his first bogey on the second (par-4) followed by back-to-back bogeys on the third (par-4).

However, a long birdie putt from 15 meters at the sixth (par-4) seemed to turn things around, but a bogey at the seventh (par-4) halted the flow. He dropped another shot on the ninth (par-4), the last hole of the first round, to finish 3-over par.

A bogey on the 10th (par-4), the first hole of the second round, was followed by another on the 13th (par-3). Ahn recovered with a birdie on the 14th (par-4), but a top-10 finish was out of reach. He closed with pars on the remaining holes.

The victory went to Emiliano Grillo (Argentina). Grillo added two more pars on the day for an 8-under-par 272 total and a tie with Adam Shank (USA) heading into the final round. He birdied the second to seal the victory.메이저놀이터

It was Grillo’s second career victory on Tour, eight years after winning the 2015 Price.com Open. He earned $1.56 million (approximately $2.08 billion) for his victory.

Kim Si-woo (28-CJ Logistics) finished tied for 29th with an even-par 280, while Lee Kyung-hoon (32-CJ Logistics) finished tied for 57th at 5-over par 283.
