Five days after Tiger Woods was in a serious automobile accident, Utah native and fellow PGA Tour golfer Tony Finau was among a group who honored him on Sunday at the WGC-Workday Championship by wearing Woods’ famous final round ensemble of a plain red Nike shirt with a white swoosh, black pants and a black hat with a white swoosh.

The Tour posted video of Finau warming up prior to his final round Sunday morning. Finau for a moment in the video had his hat on backwards as Woods has sometimes been known to wear it.

Finau, 31, has long let it be known that it was Woods who first inspired him to become interested in golf when he was a boy.

After placing second in The Genesis Invitational last week, Finau started this week strong but enters Sunday in a tie for 11th place, six shots behind leader Collin Morikawa.
