Fabian Gomez wins the Sony Open in a play-off at Waialae Country Club in Hawaii.
Fabian was tied at the top of the Sony Open leaderboard with Brandt Snedeker, both with -20 under par totals for the tournament. They played the par five18th twice in the play-off, with Fabian carding a birdie second time around, to win.
Fabian set the standard shooting seven birdies in a row for a -8 under 62 in the final round, to catch Brandt at the top. Brandt scored a last round -4 under par 66, which was not quite good enough to get the job done.
Brandt’s suspect putting stroke put paid to his dreams of wining;
“It’s frustrating because I couldn’t make putts to win the golf tournament, is going to sting today and tomorrow.”
Zac Blair took third place, at -19 under for the tournament, a final round -3 under par was never going to get him to the top of the leaderboard. Zac also had a problem with the putts not dropping, although he thought the one on eighteen was good, it would have put him in the play-off;
“One of the best putts I’ve probably ever hit right there on 18.”
“Unfortunately, it didn’t go in.”
Love The Big W, on 16, I remember the scene from The Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Would love to play there some day.
