Justin carded a final round -6 under 64 to win the Fort Worth Invitational by three shots at -20 under par;
“I am delighted the way I played this week.”
“To win on a golf course like Colonial I couldn’t be more proud.”
Brooks Koepka, USA, was second, a charging last round of -7 under 63 was a good effort, but came up three shots off the pace finishing with a -17 under total.
Emiliano Grillo, Argentina, claimed third place on his own at -16 under par, with a final round of -6 under 64.
Best round of the day went to Kevin Na, equaling the course record with bogey free -9 under par 61. Kevin started the tournament with a bogey free 62, but followed that with +3 over 73 and an even par 70. He finished the tournament in fourth place alone at -14 under par. His last approach shot to the 18th nearly went in, which would have given him a new course record;
“Yeah, I knew it was for the course record.”
“I knew I had to birdie the last to tie it. I had a beautiful 9-iron. Drew it in there, turned to the left flag. It’s a little dangerous. Obviously anything left goes in the water.”
“So, pitched it two yards right. With that hook spin coming in, nearly went in to about 10 inches.”
