Ryan and Jon shot a -3 under 69 in the alternate-shot final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to win by three strokes at -26 under par.
Ryan said it was an awesome week, his first Tour win since 2010;
“What an awesome week, our games complement each other so much, the way we drive the ball, our iron play, and there’s nothing better than missing greens knowing his short game is behind me.”
“It’s so fun when you’re playing with a guy who can hit it as good as he does. When I’m hitting it as well as I can, it makes for a lot of fun golf.”
“What a week.”
Jon was left without a partner when his intended partner Wesley Bryan had to have a shoulder op. In stepped in Ryan;
“When Wesley told me he was having shoulder surgery a few months before the event, I was in no man’s land with no partner.”
“I got a text from Ryan, and last year we were joking around saying we are going to play together really, really well based on how we played last year.”
“And then we saw each other, and it was a clear choice. I’m really happy I said yes, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
“This is a very special one, it’s very special for Ryan. I’m really excited to be able to share it with him because he definitely earned it today.”
Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia claimed second place at-23 under.
The teams of Kyoung-Hoon Lee / Matt Every and Brian Gay / Rory Sabbatini tied for third spot, five shots behind the leaders at -21 under.
