Burns, who defeated Schaeffler and reached the final, won the WGC match…4.5 billion won ‘Jackpot’
Sam Burns (USA) won the PGA Tour World Golf Championship (WGC) Dell Technologies Match Play Championship (total prize money of $20 million).
On the 27th (Korean time), Burns finished the game on the 13th hole by defeating Cameron Young (USA) with a 6-hole difference (6&5) with 5 holes left in the finals on the final day of the tournament held at Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas, USA.
In the semifinals, Burns, who reached the final after an extended match against world number one Scotty Scheffler (USA) to the 21st hole, unexpectedly played a one-sided match against Young.
Young defeated Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) in the first round of overtime in the semifinals to advance to the final, but missed the chance to win his first PGA Tour victory as he was unfortunately unable to overcome Burns’ wall.
At the beginning of the game, Young had the advantage. I recorded a birdie in the 2nd hole and took a 1-hole lead with a bogey. However, the lead did not last long. In the 5th hole (par 5), Burns chased after catching a birdie, and reversed in the 6th hole (par 5). After that, the game tilted towards Burns. Starting from the 4th hole to the 8th hole, Burns widened the gap with Young by catching birdies in every hole except for the 7th hole. With the ninth hole tied, Burns led by three holes only in the first half.
Even in the second half, Burns’ birdie hunt continued, and he broke Young’s will to pursue by making consecutive birdies from the 10th hole to the 12th hole. Young caught a birdie on the 11th hole (par 3), but could not close the gap with Burns. In the end, Burns birdied again on the 13th hole, and as the 6 holes left with 5 holes left, the championship was confirmed regardless of the remaining holes. 카지노사이트
