AmericaTony Finau won the trophy and held $1.71 million by defeating Cameron Smith by par in the Northern Trust side hole, which closed the curtain on the morning of August 24, Hanoi time.

Finau and Smith both scored -20 after 72 standard holes, on Liberty National, par71. Therefore, the two brothers had to play a playoff (sub-hole) to determine the final title, at hole 18, par4.

Here, Finau plays down the middle of the fairway while Smith goes out of bounds (OB).

At this point, the competition is considered over because Smith is penalized a stroke that must be replayed – the third.

Finau hits the green on his second shot and two putts hold par. After the shot, he looked up to the sky, constantly puffing his puffy cheeks as if he was releasing a psychological burden.

“I used all my skills with the spirit of fighting to the end to win this victory,” Finau said on the radio CBS.
