Sentry Tournament of Champions is an annual event, only open to the champions of the previous year. But this year alone, the tournament added 17 players to the Tour Championship 2020, in addition to the 25 standard spots because the US arena took many stages because of Covid-19.

Belonging to the group of open players, but English kept the top of the table throughout 54 holes on Plantation, par73. To the last round on January 10, he hit 69 sticks, including six birdies and two bogeys. The whole round, the American golfer born in 1989 played an average of 280 yards, hit 12 of the 15 fairways, went to the standard green (GIR) of 15 holes. Throughout the tournament, he averaged 277.1 yards on his header, hit 50 fairways and 62 holes GIR.

Particularly the final hole – hole 18, English was close to winning 72 standard holes with a chance to score eagle 3.3 meters away. But he was only a birdie because he missed his target and had to head to the top of the hole to play the playoffs against Joaquin Niemann. The Chilean player born in 1998 was three holes ahead of English, hitting 64 strokes – reaching the ceiling of the round from the start of the tournament. Niemann’s last day transcript was not bogey and nine birdies.

In a duel at the par5 hole, 677 yards long, both English and Niemann hit the left side of the fairway. However, Niemann has an advantage because the ball is 395 yards away, while English is only 359 yards.

The next hit, the two of them have to cut the jungle. English’s ball hit the edge of the green and Niemann left the target. Niemann’s ball landed on the green slope and rolled to the thick grass below.

With his swing and maximum force on the third, Niemann put the ball on the left edge of the green, near the hole but then slipped the birdie. Meanwhile, English gently cornered the ball and won with a birdie of 1.8 meters.
