For nearly a year, Burns has been in the top four after 54 holes, including the last two – T1 at the Houston Open 2020 in November and the Genesis Invitational 2021 in February. But American golfers born in 1996 are all lagging behind the last round.

Yesterday at the closing of the Valspar Championship, he was back at a -14 when he joined Keegan Bradley. Burns wants a breakthrough in his personal career after more than three years in professional golf, and Bradley wants to end his thirst for the title after nine years.

And according to the fact that on the last day of the tournament, they just had to compete.

Burns soon took the first place with two birdies at the beginning of the round, but Bradley regained the top of the table when nine holes ended. Into the par3 hole, both T1 played by Bradley into the water trap and then locked a double bogey.

At this point, Burns leads three strokes and has four unplayed holes. From then on, it was up to Burns, because Bradley could not pressure in the end. Both bogey hole 15. Next hole, Burns birdie again to lift the gap to four strokes.

After taking the penultimate par, they entered the 18th hole. Here, Bradley kept par while Burns only had to lightly tap. He wiped tears of happiness in a procedural putt despite the bogey hole.

The whole family rushed into the green to celebrate with him. “I have been striving for this moment. They also sacrificed too much for me,” Burns said at the ceremony.

Burns took to the coronation podium with a three-stroke final difference, earning $ 1,242 million. With this victory, he was able to play the PGA Tour for two years, the major ticket pair including the PGA Championship on May 20-23 and Masters 2022.

Bradley finished second in the Valspar Championship at -14, receiving $ 752,000. Viktor Hovland and Cameron Tringale closed the top 3, each with $ 407,000.

Bradley owns major PGA Championship 2011 in four PGA Tour championships over more than 12 years professionally.
