Tony Finau Wins Houston Open

Tony Finau captured the Cadence Bank Houston Open by four shots for his third win in his last seven starts and fourth win in his last 30 starts.

β€œTo be consistently great takes a full game both mentally and physically and I feel like, honestly, my physical game is starting to match up to my mental,” Finau said. β€œI’ve always been tough; I’ve always been strong mentally. Having a game that matches that is, I think, a great combination and I’m starting to see that with myself.”

His dominating win at Memorial Park gives Finau 500 FedEx Cup points and $1.5 first place earnings.

“It’s not easy sleeping on the lead,” Finau said. “I just, I didn’t know if I had it in me, but you just take it a shot at a time. I thought that just kind of settled me in and I was able to make some big putts on 8 and 9 just to kind of open up this tournament. Really pleased with the performance overall and especially my putting, that was quite a clinic out there over the week.”

Tyson Alexander was the runner-up after draining a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a closing 66.

“Great week for me,” Alexander said. “I wish Tony would have taken the week off.”

Alexander got into the field after a WD by Brendon Todd and made the most of his start in Houston.

World No. 2 Scottie Scheffler finished in a tie for ninth along with past majors winners Justin Rose, Gary Woodland and Jason Day.
