From the same group as Landry, Scheffler made eagle on the par-5 16th to enter the conversation at one shot back. His time in contention didn’t last long. Landry proceeded to hit his final two approaches inside of seven feet, draining the birdie putt each time. It was a wild back nine that featured just one par, and a sloppy one at that, on the par-5 16th.
Landry entered the week ranked 240th in the world, having missed five straight cuts. With the win, he’ll move up to just outside the top 100 in the world. “I had good swing thoughts coming down the stretch. Just got the job done,” Landry said. “I mean, I think the biggest shot of the tournament was the one on 17.”
Landry ran his approach out to six feet from the hole. Considering he had blown a 5-shot lead immediately prior, we’re going to agree with him on that one. It was the shot of the tournament.
