The BMW Championship is the final major of the PGA Tour season, and Tony Finau’s win last week has put him in a great position to take home the title. Here’s how the updated leaderboard looks heading into this weekend’s event.
The pga tour standings is updated after the huge win by Tony Finau at the Northern Trust.
The first leg of the PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs has been completed after five days and a 73rd hole. Tony Finau won the Northern Trust at Liberty National on a wild Monday, beating world No. 1 Jon Rahm and 54-hole co-leader Cameron Smith in a sudden-death playoff to claim his greatest victory of his career. Finau currently leads the FedEx Cup points standings after his win, as he and 69 other players prepare for the BMW Championship.
In spectacular fashion, Tony Finau won the first leg of the PGA Tour FedEx Cup Playoffs.
Finau’s first PGA Tour win came in Puerto Rico more than five years ago, and the golf world has been waiting for him to follow up with a second since then. So many times he’s gotten near, just to fall short. On Monday, though, such was not the case at Liberty National.
Finau was two strokes behind Rahm and Smith heading into the fourth round of the Northern Trust, the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs. However, after scoring birdies on two of his opening four holes, he soon found himself tied for first place. He was down two after making bogey on the par-5 eighth after failing to escape a bunker from a plugged lie. But he remained true to himself and put up a fantastic back nine.
Finau started on No. 12 and played three holes in 5-under par, including an eagle at the 13th, for a 6-under round of 65. Meanwhile, Rahm, who had been in command for the most of the day, faltered on the back nine and ended two strokes behind at 18-under. Smith scored a 67 and completed the week at 20-under par, putting him in a sudden-death playoff alongside Finau.
That playoff, which started on the 18th, didn’t continue long, as Smith’s tee shot went into the penalty area, essentially terminating the event. Finau made a simple par and that was the end of it. The 31-year-old won his second PGA Tour title and climbed to the top of the FedEx Cup standings after 1,975 days and 39 top-10 finishes.
