Norwegian Golfer Viktor Hovland, on December 6, won the championship with a score of -20 at the stage in Mexico and won the “curse of the PGA Tour” since 2008.
On the closing day of the tournament, Hovland hit 65 strokes, scored seven birdies and one bogey on par71. The 23-year-old player got on the podium with a birdie 3.6 meters on the green hole 18.
In this round, Hovland averaged 304.5 yards, hit six of the 14 fairways but went standard green in 14 out of 18 holes.
The Mayakoba Classic for the first time recorded the final winner with a last hole birdie since 2007, but with Hovland, this is the same thing. In February, the golfer won the Puerto Rico Open – the first individual title on the PGA Tour also thanks to a birdie from nine meters. At the time, Hovland was on the list of “cursed” champions because of its 12-year history without a champion who could win a professional tournament or other PGA Tour event.
In fact, Alex Cejka erased a portion of “bad luck” with a trophy at the small-scale Outlaw Tour in mid-April this year. As for Hovland, yesterday had eliminated that curse.
He started in the penultimate group, going through the first half of the round with four birdies and a two-stroke lead into the second half. Aaron Wise was one group ahead of Hovland. The American Golfer born in 1996 tragic recorded six birdies, an eagle and no bogey in 16 holes. Thanks to that, he also Hovland kept the top of the table. Wise, however, slipped the birdies both from 3.6 meters in both end holes so they finished first at -19.
And Hovland, after the 12-hole bogey, seems to open up the chances for at least six opponents behind with a decreasing one-stroke gap. But soon, he closed this possibility with a birdie both holes next.
Having finished hole 15, Hovland still shared the top of the table with Wise. Into the 16 par5 hole, 515 yards long, Hovland thought of the “tunnel collapse” scene when he saw the hit with a long iron to the right, into the line of mangroves. But the ball stopped on the wasteland, near the water’s edge. From there, Hovland bounced the ball into the green, 1.2 meters from the hole and kept par.
The penultimate hole, Hovland missed the birdie’s chance to win. Coming into hole 18, par4, he went green correctly – “2 on”, and this time he did not miss the chance with a right-to-left pass.
“I’m not good at being under pressure in critical situations. After my second shot in hole 16, I thought I was out of work. But then I saved par. Hole 17 missed the birdie again, so into hole 18 I knew I had to At last the ball came in and I was shaking, “said Hovland. Hovland received $ 1,296 million, Wise received second place with 784,800 USD. T3 is at -17, with $ 424,800 including Tom Hoge and Adam Long.
Tony Finau – former Puerto Rico Open champion – had the opportunity to contend for the title when he reached the final round of Mayakoba Classic. His door, however, narrowed behind bogey in hole 10 and closed completely because bogey was two of the last three. Finau returns to T8 at -15, receiving $ 203,400.
