Max Gilbert has done it folks. Tell them what I mean, TSN:
Max Gilbert shot 6-under-par 66 on Sunday and won the Tour Championship of Canada by a single stroke. Gilbert finished 72 holes at 20-under-par 268 at Sunningdale Golf & Country Club’s Championship Course and secured his first PGA Tour Canada win.
Yeah buddy! What a finish, aye? No, really, it was quite a finish:
Gilbert started the final round one stroke off Murphy’s pace and mixed an eagle with five birdies and a bogey to surpass the overnight leader and secure his maiden victory on tour.
The pair were tied entering the par-4 17th, where Gilbert tallied a birdie to go ahead for good.
At the last, Murphy’s 25-foot birdie effort popped out of the cup, allowing Gilbert to 2-putt from 15 feet for the win.
Aw, duuude! It was like a movie ending. Here’s some other finishes:
Overnight leader Trevor Murphy shot 68 and ended a stroke back at 19-under, while defending champion Eugene Wong (67) and Jose Toledo (66) tied for third at 14-under. Nathan Tyler (68) and Alex Kang (73) shared fifth at minus-13.
The top-five players on the Order of Merit at the end of this event gained Web.com Tour status for next season. They were: (1) Mackenzie Hughes, (2) Riley Wheeldon, (3) Hubbard, (4) Hugo Leon and (5) Wil Collins.
Well, congrats to Mr. Gilbert.
