Tony Finau won the 3M Open, five behind, and set the tournament record for the biggest comeback in the finals in Minneapolis.
The American even managed to afford a bogey six after hitting the water at TPC Twin Cities on the 18th as he still won by three shots over South Korean Sungjae Im after leaders Scott Piercy had a nightmare on the overnight last 11 holes.
Piercy, who started Day Four in advance, had six bogeys, a set of three – during which he escaped a bunker in the sand and then hit his next shot into the lake – and two birdies when he finished with a 41 on the back nine in 41 collapsed.
His round of 76 dropped him to fourth at 13 under.
Finau’s victory score of 17-under came after a round of 67, and three consecutive birdies from round 14 allowed him to head the last one with a huge pillow so even a dropped shot couldn’t throw him off course.
Former Masters champion Danny Willett finished seventh with 10 under after recovering from two opening bogeys to shoot a 68.
