Tony Finau comes back from five to win 3M Open and set tournament record

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.
