Lucas Glover, results
Glover doesn't go beyond -1 on the day, closing with an overall score of -15 (265 hits). His compatriot Patrick Cantlay took advantage of it, best of Tennessee on Sunday thanks to a superb -6 which allows him to match the leader.
However Cantlay commits a bogey in the only playoff hole, the 18, giving the title to the forty-three year old from Greenville. On the par 70 course of the TPC Southwind of Menphis (Tennessee, United States) the Englishman Tommy Fleetwood and the Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy complete the podium with -14.
-12 and fifth solo position for the American Taylor Moore, who precedes by a length the group that closes the top ten made up of the Australian Cam Davis, the Canadian Corey Conners, the South Korean Sungjae Im, and the Americans Adam Schenk, Max Homa , Jordan Spieth and Russell Henley.
He loses 8 positions ending his efforts in 31st place with -6 Scottie Scheffler. 37th place with -5 for the Spanish Jon Rahm, who pays for a disastrous first round.
