The Final Round
The final round saw some of the best golf of the tournament. It started off with a bang, as MacKenzie opened up with three birdies in his first four holes. This set the tone for his entire round, as he consistently made great shots while avoiding any major mistakes or bogeys. His playing partners weren’t quite as successful, including last week’s winner Charles Smith who struggled to find consistency throughout all four rounds of play.
MacKenzie’s Winning Putt
On 18, MacKenzie had an opportunity to clinch victory on the green, and he delivered when it mattered most by sinking an 18-foot putt for par that earned him two playoff holes against Smith and David Johnson. This would prove to be enough for MacKenzie to secure his first ever PGA Tour victory. After sinking this putt, he threw his hands up in celebration and was met by cheers from both fans and fellow players alike.
