In the USA, Scottie Scheffler gave a show in the PGA Tour tournament, however won by the Argentine Emiliano Grillo (67 65 72 68) who, with a birdie on the second hole of the play-off, overtook the American Adam Schenk (66 67 67 72).

In Fort Worth, Texas, on the Colonial Country Club course (par 70), both finished the 72 regulation holes with a total of 272 (-8) strokes, but what made the difference in the play-off was a feat by Grillo who , after almost eight years since the last time (Frys.com Open in October 2015), he returned to success on the PGA Tour.

The exploit earned the 30-year-old from Resistencia $1,556,000 for a total prize pool of $8,700 .000 and also allowed him to climb from 80th to 42nd position in the world rankings. Runner up in 2022, Scheffler therefore closed the competition in 3rd place with 273 (-7) alongside the Englishman Harry Hall, leader in the first two rounds.

Scheffler, world number 1, on the 8th hole (par 3 of 189 yards, 172.8 metres) and with a 7 iron scored a "hole in one" emulating Harris English who, in the second round, always distinguished himself with an ace on that hole.

Top 10 and 6th place with 275 (-5) for Sam Burns, defending champion. And now the PGA Tour is preparing to return as a protagonist from 1 to 4 June in Dublin (Ohio) with The Memorial Tournament, a high tournament that will boast a prize pool of 20,000,000 dollars.
