Cameron Champ takes his third PGA Tour title

The American finished with two strokes of advantage over his chases. Sergio García and Rafael Cabrera, far from the top positions.


The American Camerón Champ with a record of 66 strokes (-5) reached 269 (-15) to be proclaimed this Sunday the new champion of the 3M Open tournament, of the PGA Tour, with two strokes of advantage over three other players, including the Venezuelan veteran Jonathan Vegas.

Champ, 26, who achieved his third PGA Tour tournament, his first since the Safeway Open, which he won on September 25, 2019, finished the tour perfectly at the TPC Twin Cities, Blaine, Minnesota, with a card signed of five birdies.

The new champion was again consistent and solid both on long strokes to put the ball on the fairways and later when he was on the green with the putt. His triumph became the big surprise when he was not among the favorites, which allowed a bettor who placed $ 500 in his favor as champion, to win $ 65,500 with the line.

While the 36-year-old Vegas, who played his best tournament so far this season, finished with a record of 68 shots (-3) after completing a perfect first half with three birdies. But in the second, the Maturín player did not have the same consistency and inspiration and lost his chances to win after committing two bogeys on holes 13 and 17, respectively, which he shared with two birdies.

South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Chari Schawartzel, both with a record of 68 strokes (-3), amassed 271 (-13) as did Vegas, to share second place in the rankings.

Along with Vegas, the great highlight of Latin American golf in the tournament was the Chilean Mito Pereira, 26, who recovered 18 places to place himself in sixth place with a cumulative 273 strokes (-11) after having delivered a signed card of 67 (-4), second time he did it after doing it in the second round. The veteran Colombian golfer Camilo Villegas did not have the same performance, who had his worst record since the tournament began by delivering a signed card of 74 (+3), after having done 69 (-3) in the three previous rounds, which forced him down to 51st place, which he shared with six other players.

The opposite of what happened with the Spanish Sergio García, who went from less to more in the tournament and finished Sunday's round with 67 strokes (-4), the best of the four days, which allowed him to climb to the 25th with a total of 276 (-8), which he shared with Americans Adam Long and Sam Ryder. Example that Rafael Cabrera did not follow, who went from more to less to deliver a card of 74 (+3) and accumulated 282 hits (-2) 444 444
