Finau shoots a 72, claims prize money

SHARE Finau shoots a 72, claims prize money

Tony Finau finished at the bottom of the leaderboard at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, but there were plenty of positives for the Salt Lake City teenager.

The 17-year-old Finau rebounded from a poor first round and made the cut after shooting a second-round 65. He finished the tournament with a 72 on Sunday and earned $7,960 in prize money in the PGA event.

Joe Ogilvie eagled the par-4 16th hole to break a tie with Tim Clark and win his first PGA Tour event in 230 starts by shooting a 67 to finish 14-under 266.

Clark (71), along with third-round leader Tim Herron (72) and Charlie Wi (68), finished 10 under. Steve Flesch (68), Bob Heintz (68), Jeff Maggert (69) and Kenny Perry (71) were six strokes back.

Clark squandered a two-stroke lead on the back nine and he and Herron, playing in the final group, heard the gallery's roar after Ogilvie's eagle.

Ogilvie, at 11 under, had to carry his wedge shot over water 119 yards to the pin. The ball hit the middle of the green and spun back about 30 feet to the cup, where it dropped.

Ogilvie had a wide-eyed look, jumping up and yelling "Whoa!" before an awkward high-five with his caddie to celebrate the lucky shot that moved him 13 under.

He added a birdie on No. 18 to finish his round, but the eagle was all Ogilvie needed.

The 33-year-old Duke graduate who closely monitors the stock market had made seven consecutive cuts and led here at the midway point, but said his weekend play made him a seller, not a buyer.

Now he'll have $720,000 to invest for winning at the Brown Deer Golf Course.

LPGA: At New Rochelle, N.Y., Seon Hwa Lee spoiled Ai Miyazato's latest bid for her first LPGA Tour title, beating the Japanese star 2 and 1 on Sunday in the final of the HSBC Women's World Match Play Championship.

The 21-year-old Lee, the rookie of the year last year after lapping Miyazato to win the final ShopRite LPGA Classic, knocked off the 12th-seeded Miyazato after beating No. 10 Mi Hyun Kim 2-up in an all-South Korean semifinal.

Miyazato won the par-4 14th with a conceded birdie to cut Lee's lead to a hole, but Lee took the par-4 15th with a 6-foot birdie putt after Miyazato missed an 8-footer.

They halved the par-5 16th with birdies — Lee holed a 7-footer and Miyazato followed from 4 feet — and Lee ended the match with an 8-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th.
