wozmatic

It's crazy because before this year I've never heard of Harris English and I watched a decent amount of golf.


loveallcreatures

Not counting Finau. Opposite field event at PR. Imho. It’s his first legit pga.


00Samwise00

Anyone know where (if possible) to re-watch the final round? I was busy all day and missed it :(


UsuallyRegular

I think you can re-watch the broadcast via Golf.tv (7 day free trial), not 100% sure though.


xela_sj

Grats Tony. One of my fav dudes on tour. Bring home that fed ex cup


koolaidman1030

What’s crazy is Tony’s home course Rose Park in Utah is more beat up than the course at Liberty after a fucking hurricane


xTSxDOLLAHOLLA

Lol I work right down the road from Rose Park Course. The Disc golf course next door is in better condition.


taleggio

Why would that be crazy...?


letsgobrooksy

Because a lot of tour players grew up rich and playing nice country clubs. And Liberty supposedly endured a hurricane


taleggio

Ohh I see what they meant ahaha yeah it's a very nice story for a guy like Tony to make it! I also read the other reply to op and I thought it was also raining in Utah so his home course was drenched too and I didn't get why that would be crazy lol


xela_sj

Was no hurricane over here. Just rain no wind.


DrDongSquarePants

I'm so damn happy for Tony, he reaaaally deserved this. He is so easy to like


wozmatic

ok for real though, year of the playoff this has got to be an all-time record


MarcusP2

Record is 18 in 2011. 13 this year so far. ​ https://twitter.com/JustinRayGolf/status/1429940004688703488?s=20


wozmatic

Thanks man, so it looks like every 10 years there's a playoff spike


LordTwatSlapper

Happy learned how to putt..... Uh oh......


alreddy-reddit

***LFG TONY***


Raticus9

Spieth, Ancer, Finau... what is 2021? I'm guessing probably Fleetwood next.


xela_sj

oost and westwood winning on US soil


taleggio

I can see that you're only interested in the exceptionally rare


Raticus9

Westwood would really be something.


xela_sj

Maybe one of them will win next week !


Raticus9

Probably not Fleetwood, since he didn't make the playoffs, but Oosty looks all kinds of due.


xela_sj

Yea it's great rooting for the older guys. Fleetwood will have plenty of chances. Guys like Kevin Na and Charley Hoffman are crazy consistent and a lot of fun to watch too.


PusherofCarts

So happy for Tony!


JW9thWonder

Tiger FINAU or Tony Finually


kbla248

Finau baby!!


BoltUp69

Phil is going to Baltimore at 70th! I am going and was really hoping to see him in person for the first time!


throwmeawaypoopy

Calves and bombs, baby!


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

Give him a 👍🏻 for me when you see him


thekidwiththefa

Hoping he plays well enough so I can see him at East Lake 🤞


WildfireTommyBitch

Finau!!!


__pulsar

Finally! He handled this drought better than most would. He clearly understands variance and he knew it was only a matter of time until he won again.


xela_sj

The fact that he chased down the world #1 must make it even sweeter.


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

Way to go Tony 😭😭😭😭


NICKFOLES4lyfe

Yes Tony, keep em coming


hidey_ho_nedflanders

Congrats to the 2009 Big Break Disney Golf runner-up on winning the Northern Trust


Dhumavati80

Wait, was Tony really on Big Break??


KarateKid917

Yup. Him and his brother


xela_sj

He was a big boy


hidey_ho_nedflanders

Yup https://www.golfcompendium.com/2020/07/big-break-disney-golf.html


Dhumavati80

Thanks! I can't believe I didn't remember him. I watched that season but only remembered Mike Perez and Andrew Giuliani. TIL! Edit: huge Finau fan so I'm going to have to rewatch this season just to see how far his game has come 😊

EastCoastWarrior

Great to see Finau take a win again. 👏


121193

Jordan went from 2nd to 7th yikes


The98Legend

Not the end of the world. Still in a great position if he has a decent week next week. A great week next week and he can easily be 1 or 2 again.


FatCatThreePack

FedEx Finau CONFIRMED


Purednuht

LETS GOOOO


Jwiesel13

Tony!!!!


MiamiFootball

he did it for the Gipper


Backpack839

Good things happen to those that grind. My favorite win of the year.


iLiveforthemusic

TONY T R A I N


MrBanannasareyum

CHUGGA CHUGGA CHOO CHOO


CleverFeather

TONYYYYYY 🥳


TheNothingNothing

GG Finau. Lets see some more wins soon.


koolaidman1030

I would like the person who said Tony has no clutch and needs to visit a sports psychologist after hitting the other fairway to apologize to the man


LordTwatSlapper

If you needed to see a psychologist every time you hit the wrong fairway I'd be in serious financial trouble


hreiedv

That was an exciting hour of golf


Zloggt

Great job Tony!!


DrinkingWaters88

Ankles finally does it


koolaidman1030

TONY BACK?


Wolverine2121

3 Putts to win, what a graphic.


Yoshiman400

If Hovland broke the Puerto Rico curse, Finau's about to atomize it.


thenextguy

He looks mean. Game face on.


opobdtfs

Is this the beginning of unlocking a second gear for Finau as announcers have hyped for a while? Time for him to go on a rampage like Spieth 2015 or JT 2017?


wolverine1819

I would be so down for this. Finau seems like a good dude and he’s the most rags to riches story on the tour right now I can think of


MrBanannasareyum

He really is. If you haven’t seen the video he’s done with EAL, it’s great. Here it is: https://youtu.be/lBeIdwk_pGM


3columnsof11

That’s the video that got me into EAL. I love him and Tony. That course is unbelievable.


pickle_man_4

[So you can concede in a stroke play play off.](https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/committee-procedures/rule-7.html#:~:text=In%20a%20stroke%2Dplay%20play,to%20be%20declared%20the%20winner.) Has anyone on the Tour ever done that?


CJNunes426

Finau….. incredible lettuce


slightly_goated

The baby blue might just do it tony


TheBiles

Tony finally gets the monkey off his back!


LordTwatSlapper

This is a massive victory for us regular watchers who got sick of the Finau non-winning streak commentator narrative several years ago


Yoshiman400

Close but not close enough when you're hitting five.


121193

What curse?


[deleted]

Congrats Finau finally gets a full pga tour win, been stalking the leader boards for awhile now


slightly_goated

Tonyyyyyyy


[deleted]

[удалено]


GutRammed

Huh? Cam Smith was 3-0 in playoffs


JDD4318

I hit that same drive on 10 and 11 last week after shooting 38 on the front. Hadn’t shot that low in a while all to end with another 80.


NorthernViews

Why did I know he would slice that.... what a shame. Imagine all that work leading to 1 hole, all for nothing..... (I know it's not 'nothing', but they obviously care more to win the thing than the money).


Key_Abroad7633

i have repeatedly bet Tony to win to no avail and fianlly it looks like its paying off. 50-800


GutRammed

Nice, sounds like you broke even on him


LordTwatSlapper

Shame Tony's first win in 2 billion years will finish on such an anticlimactic moment


ElonMuskPaddleBoard

Cam smith hit a drive that looks like mine


Constant-Meat8430

Kind of ironic that someone else’s choke is going to give tony the title


SchmokietheBeer

I mean tony did have a great day to put himself in the playoff. Best day actually.


[deleted]

30 on the back 9, he came in clutch and deserved a break to finally go his way


Zloggt

Real Happy for Tony! Though I feel bad for Cam…


FatCatThreePack

FedEx Finau Incoming


Tcrome

LETS GO FINAU! Feel bad for cam tho, not a great way to end such an exciting 5 days


Purednuht

ANCER AND FINAU THIS YEAR??!!?? MAMA, WE MADE IT!


MSK13

Disastrous for Cam but very happy for Tony if he wins. Would be his first right? Love the guy


Saffs15

Second. Won the Puerto Rico open a few years back. Only the second player to win another tournament after winning the PR open, after Vicktor Hovland.


MrBanannasareyum

2nd, 1st since 2016


wozmatic

Tony Finau has won an event


EastCoastWarrior

* again!! .;)


The_Autumn_Wind

Don't disrespect the very prestigious Puerto Rico Open like that


KL040590

Damn I hope that doesn’t effect cam long term


Saffs15

Hes had a couple bad shots recently at the worst time. Bad drives, for that matter. Here and WGC Memphis.


KL040590

He seemed shaky with his driver on the front but it turned around. I know I would be fucked the rest of my carwer


PibeEnLaEsquina

VAMOS TONY


rocketman1214

Love it


kbla248

Tony!!!


UsuallyRegular

Are there no spectators at all this week?


Constant-Meat8430

There was until the tropical storm hit


IGroves

Just this last day due to weather / delay


Purednuht

They were there this week, except for today due to the round being moved to Monday from Sunday.


UsuallyRegular

Ah okay thanks. Surprised they wouldn't give everyone who had tickets for Sunday the opportunity to attend today instead.


Purednuht

Same. I would be pretty upset if that was the case for myself.


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

Oh no cam Congrats Tony!!!


FatCatThreePack

WE BELIEVE


HMFC18745-1

I did not expect that.


thekidwiththefa

Cam was supposed to be the dirty stache to rule them all


sau1_g0odman

Apparently I am Cam Smith


pudgeypoo

Cam baby what is you doin??


EastCoastWarrior

That’s such a shitty way to (likely) lose it. Ouch.


Manler

Welp that was anticlimactic lol


CleverFeather

Oh my God no way


CJNunes426

Finau should have winked right there. It would have been cold


Tigerwoodsyaall

Did Tony's nipples just get insta hard after Cam went ob?


techformer

I can’t believe you’ve done that


Meatfist70

TONY TRAIN JUST DEPARTED 🚂😤🚂😤


brmgp1

foolish_jordon

Zargaith94

GutRammed

Oh damn... A bogey will win the play off

NYC looks great, and I would *love* to visit one day. Honestly, >!Pittsburgh and Washington DC are the most “northeastern” I’ve ever been…!<


lincolnandleland

Awesome city - so much energy and life but dirty and stinky as all hell


UsuallyRegular

"That's the beauty of playoffs, you only need to beat one guy." Tell that to Kevin Kisner..


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

Kisner: hold my beer


_Treadstone_

Those guys just drive across the tee pad??


Tigerwoodsyaall

I heard you like playoffs. So I put a playoff in your playoff.


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

CleverFeather

Punching tickets over here for the Tony Train let me see your tickets y’all 🎟


MrBanannasareyum

ALL ABOOOAAAARRRDD


MrBanannasareyum

Nothing like a playoff in the playoffs


Jwiesel13

I love Finau but Cam Smith is dangerous ): #PrayForTony


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

It’s hard to believe finau only has one win in his career Wow


sejohnson0408

Channel in the US? Specifically Raleigh market Found it thanks for the replies


brmgp1

cbssports.com or the app is free


MrBanannasareyum

If it’s not on CBS, you’ll have to watch it on the app or on cbssports.com


Bo0m_King

CBS


408steeler

How does a playoff work?


thenextguy

No rules. First one in the hole wins.


flat_top

Sudden death starting at 18th hole. Lowest score wins. Not sure where they go if they tie the first though. Sometimes it’s back to 18 sometimes they go to 17 or somewhere else entirely.


devrnick

CBS audio is ahead of what's being shown on screen, rather watch on mute


GrobbelaarsMoustache

Gotta hope Tony finally wins a big one. He was playing so well at the start of the year. I really want him to just breakthrough. This is going to be tough to watch. Nerve racking.


Zloggt

JUST ANOTHER >!MANIC MONDAY!<


opobdtfs

>!The one time that commercial actually would have been appropriate in a golf broadcast...!<


The_Autumn_Wind

How many holes before it gets too dark? 2 or 3?


opobdtfs

They can probably get away with 4 holes.

FatCatThreePack

Oh this is an easy one fam - root for Finau


CJNunes426

I have to think Cam is kinda over Rahm right now


Zloggt

I wonder how any Rahm bettors are taking this right now…


MrTacooooo

Im rooting for the dirty stache. Lets go Cam!


MuscleFlex_Bear

Prime time Monday night playoff golf?!?!? Do you believe in miracles?!?!?!?!


EastCoastWarrior

Sky says the play-off would be: 18-18-16-17-18 (if needed)


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

It’s a playoff


Zloggt

Finau still has a chance! 😀 He has to play playoffs 😕

Cam sinks the bird and goes on smoko calling it now Edit: did not sink the bird but the possibility of smoko still looms large


imnottiger

New York looks unreal back there.


BoGeYsforDayZzZ

408steeler

opobdtfs
