But the Woodstock, Vermont native began to surge on the back nine with four birdies on the first six holes with a putt on 15 cutting Reavie's lead to one stroke.
Then the 37-year-old Reavie sank a 14-foot putt on the next-to-last hole and eventually claimed his first PGA Tour victory in nearly 11 years by four shots over local favorite Keegan Bradley and Zack Sucher in the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands https://tpc.com/riverhighlands in Cromwell, Conn.
In addition to $633,600 in prize money for his best finish on the PGA Tour, he'll earn an exemption into next year's Travelers Championship, and 300 FedEx Points.
He won the Knoxville Open in 2007. His doctor told him that it was 50-50 that the surgery would be a success and he'd be able to play golf again.
Shot of the day: Reavie knew he'd likely take at least a two-shot lead to the final tee, but when he rolled in a 14-footer for birdie on No. 17 he essentially put the tournament on ice.
Reavie's six-shot overnight lead was whittled down to just a single stroke when playing-partner Bradley made his fourth birdie of the back nine at the 15th as the tournament developed into a two-horse race at TPC River Highlands. "I just was fortunate enough to stay patient and make that big putt on 17 to give myself a little cushion on 18".
Chez Reavie didn't have his best round of the week Sunday, but he was able to get the job done.
"There are a lot of positives coming from this week; I hit 88 per cent of greens", Day said.Читайте также: New York Yankees break 17-year Major League Baseball home run record
Sucher had a 71 to drop into a tie for second with Keegan Bradley (69) at 10 under.
Meanwhile, Bradley kept making birdies on the back nine just as Reavie did on Saturday. If you don't, you're hitting it out of bounds or in the water, is in play on every hole. You've got to execute.
"Well, the back nine, this course is birdiefest", Bradley said.
Ancer closed with five birdies over his final eight holes, bouncing back from his lone bogey on the day at No. 10 to notch his first top-10 finish on Tour since the CIMB Classic in October.
"I was playing well all day", Taylor said.
"I felt like I was hitting good putts and they just weren't going in". Paul Casey, last year's runner-up, shot 65 and finished in a three-way tie for fifth at 11 under.
Justin Thomas managed a 70 to be four under overall, while defending champion Bubba Watson finished the day with a three-over 73 to fall into a tie for 51st at two under. He feels it. So everything is feel for him, and so there is a blend of old school and new school, but ultimately we come back to the same number.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
