Jason Kokrak, second PGA Tour career title

In Texas Jason Kokrak takes advantage of Jordan Spieth's misstep and, with a total of 266 (65 65 66 70, -14) hits, wins the Charles Schwab Challenge, PGA Tour tournament, and celebrates his second career title on the PGA Tour .

Nothing to do for Spieth (champion in 2016), who finished second with 268 (63 66 66 73, -12) paying dearly for a final round, the decisive one, three shots above par (73, +3). On the Colonial Country Club course (par 70) 3 / o place (270, -10) for Patton Kizzire, Charley Hoffman, Ian Poulter and Sebastian Munoz.

Collin Morikawa, runner up in 2020, did not go beyond 14th place (275, -5). Last year's winner Daniel Berger ranked 20 / o (276, -4). Same score for Justin Rose, gold at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Games and Sergio Garcia (winner in 2001).

Justin Thomas disappoints, world number 2, only 40 / o (278, -2). For the American Kokrak, in addition to the second title (after that of 2020 in the CJ Cup), on the top American circuit (in 249 starts) also a check for 1,350,000 dollars against a total prize pool of 7,500,000 and the 22 / in position (it was 35 / o on the eve) in the world ranking.

In Denmark Bernd Wiesberger drops the encore and with a total of 263 (66 65 68 64, -21) hits he is once again confirmed as champion of Made in HimmerLand. For the Austrian it is the eighth career success on the European Tour.

But in Farso another great result came for Guido Migliozzi who finished second with 268 (69 68 68 63, -16). Runner up for the third time this season and for the second consecutive (he has returned from silver in the British Masters after that in April at the Qatar Masters).

A new close success for the Vicenza player but the almost certainty of playing the next US Open, scheduled from 17 to 20 June in La Jolla, California. With a great final partial (63, -8) bogey free, the best of the fourth and last round, supported by 8 birdies, the blue rose from the 14th position touching the big target.

But it is a heavy second place for Migliozzi since the Made in HimmerLand, as well as the British Masters (and together with the Porsche European Open, from 3 to 6 June in Hamburg), are among the three Eurotour tournaments that are up for grabs.

places (ten in total for the best of a special ranking of the top continental circuit) for the US Open. On the other hand, Nino Bertasio ranked 25 / o with 275 (-9), with Lorenzo Gagli 59 / o (280, -4) and Renato Paratore 71 / o (284, par).

After the success of 2019 - in 2020 the tournament was canceled for Covid - for Wiesberger (winner of the 2019 Italian Open) a new exploit has arrived at Made in Himmerland. That of confirmation.
