Lanto Griffin was crowned at the Houston Open 2019

Scoring -14 after a three-horse race, world-class 176 golfer Lanto Griffin won the first PGA Tour title of his career.

In the final round, Lanto Griffin kept the top of the table at -11. Following him closely was Mark Hubbard who was a club less away. Playing in the final group, both scored -14 before going to the next half.

At hole 11, Griffin had his second bogey of the day after an unsatisfactory flag attack with a ninth iron rod. At this time, the leading position belonged to Hubbart. However, the road to the championship trophy became a trio with the appearance of Scott Harrington. With 7 birdies and two bogeys, this golfer finished first and took the number one position in the leading position at -13.

In hole 15, par5, Hubbart caught the only fairway skating kick in the round. It took him up to three clubs to reach the green and slide the hole in an attempt to putt par from a distance of about 2.4 meters. As a result, the golfer shared the top spot with Griffin and Harrington, when all three aspired to have their first victory at the PGA Tour. In the next hole, Griffin took the lead with birdie after a putt 10 meters from the crater.

The most difficult hole in the yard as well as the whole tournament, hole 18, par4, 484 yards long witnessed the key moment, deciding the owner of the championship. Here, after the tee shot, Hubbart had a good chance to force the opponent to the playoff. From the fairway, he used a short iron stick to bring the ball to about 7.6 meters from the crater, but the birdie effort failed because the putt missed to the left of the goal.

Griffin kicks the ball into the rough (high grass is an obstacle on the field). However, the American golfer hit the green on the second shot and then made two puttes to preserve the lead on a putter that had regained in front of the penultimate hole. The final score of -14 earned Griffin the title of the first PGA Tour of his career, as well as a two-year special rate in this arena.

In the winning flavor, Griffin just said, "I feel so relieved to unravel." With a $ 1.35 million bonus, Griffin is more than capable of fulfilling her previous promise of buying a new car for her mother.

Harrington and Hubbard shared the runner-up position at -13, each receiving $ 667,500. Chinese Golfer Zhang Xinjun hit 66 sticks and finished in T4 with a score of -11, alongside Harris English, Talor Gooch, Carlos Ortiz, Sepp Straka. This group has a prize money of nearly 287,000 USD. Zhang is the only Asian golfer in the top 10 final.

The T9 position got a score of -10, receiving nearly 197,000 USD, co-owned by US golfer group: Bud Cauley, Chad Campbell, Stewart Cink and Denny McCarthy.

This week, the PGA Tour moved back to "Asian destinations", starting with South Korea with the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges. This event is limited to a list of 78 people, bringing together the world's top stars Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson...
