Hudson Swafford wins the Corales Puntacana golf tournament

Thanks to the result of 69 strokes in the final round, Swafford brought back the second trophy on the PGA Tour after three years of “white title” and being crowned CareerBuilder Challenge 2017.
For all four days, Swafford was part of the group of contenders for the title. With 65 clubs opening on September 24, Swafford shared the top of the table with three other golfers and took the lead over the next 18 holes, despite being stung by a wasp in his right hand. By the third round, Swafford gave up his position to Adam Long but was still able to win the trophy because it was close to the top of Long’s -17 group with a 2-stroke difference.


On the day of the decisive match, Swafford for a moment had a four-stroke lead. Starting from hole 1 of the par72 stadium in the Dominican Republic, Swafford was not only clean of bogey but also collected three birdies with the same Eagle score over the first eight holes. However, a golfer born in 1987 made a mistake with a double bogey in hole 13 and bogey on hole 15 while Tyler McCumber stabilized to close the gap. However, Swafford did not miss the opportunity to enjoy the full 500 FedEx Cup points as well as the ticket to The Masters 2021 thanks to the birdie point at the penultimate hole to bring back the 69-club round.
Swafford became the third player in a row at Corales Puntacana to win the title at -18, behind Graeme McDowell and Brice Garnett. At -17, McCumber finished runner-up while last season runner Mackenzie Hughes finished third (-16). The two top 5 golfers are Nate Lashley (-15) and Adam Long (-14).
