Highlights from the final round of Valero Texas Open -Part2
This article is continuation of the recap for the final round of the Valero Texas Open.
Brandt Snedeker finished fourth in the tournament after compiling a score of 6-under par. He reeled two birdies in the front and dropped a shot in the opening hole at the back to compile a safer scorecard. Snedeker has not been
quite of an entertainment for the critics and the spectators, as he played safe and did not produce any of the greatest shots of the tournament.
Same goes for Cameron Tringale who failed to put up a good show, the way he had been doing in past couple of rounds. He was the only player in the entire field to break par in the first three rounds. However, with the wind blowing
at its peak, the player could not withstand much of the pressure and dropped three shots in a row on the back. He picked two birdies to wipe the mess off, but had to suffice with a score of 1-over par.
The player sat on the second spot of the leader board in the start of the round and was the betting favourite for many.
Charles Howell III scored a 72 on Sunday after he stepped in it with a 68. The golfer took off with a slow start as he bogeyed two of the four opening holes, but had a grip on the pace after the fifth hole, when he started the
birdie fiesta. The American clawed three birdies in a row and marched towards the back to catch few more, but could not relish much success. Instead he bogeyed the tenth green and walked to the clubhouse all drained.
When asked by the press what he felt about the final round and his game, he replied that he was not satisfied with his game, as he could have done better, but was looking forward to return to the course in the future.
One stroke below sat a duo, which included the winner of Arnold Palmer Invitational, Martin Laird. The Scott broke par unlike most of the players with the help of four birdies, of which two were in the closing holes on the back.
Laird had his driver on his side despite of the blistering conditions, which is why; he did not find much problem in plunging the fairways. The player rendered impressive stats in green hits in regulation and finished third in it, despite struggling in putting.
Adam Scott, who finished second at the Augusta National a week back, could not utilize his extra long putter to its fullest. He finished tied in the 23rd place after producing a score of 4-over par 76. The Aussie, who
happened to be the defending champion said, “I just didn’t have much of anything today. Did not make any putts for momentum. Just a tough day because I wasn’t getting myself in good shots.”
