Finau rallies to claim 3M


Tony Finau shot a fourunder-par 67 to win the 3M Open by three strokes Sunday, erasing a five-stroke deficit with 11 holes left as Scott Piercy tumbled out of the lead down the stretch at windy TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minn.

Piercy followed his tournament-record 54-hole score with a wince-inducing 76 to tie for fourth, four strokes back.

Finau finished at 17-under 267. Sung jae Im (68) and Emiliano Grillo (71) tied for second place. James Hahn surged up the board with a 65 to match Piercy and Tom Hoge (70) at 13 under.

Piercy bogeyed four of six holes before a triple-bogey implosion on No. 14 allowed Finau — playing in the preceding trio — to take over for good on his way to his third career tour victory.

Finau, who tied for third at the 3M Open in 2020, jumped from 30th to 17th in the FedEx Cup race. He entered the week ranked 17th in the world.

Henderson ends major title drought

Brooke Henderson ended her six-year wait for a second major championsh­ip.

The Canadian capped off a wild final round at the Evian Championsh­ip in France by rolling in an eightfoot birdie putt at the 18th hole to win by one stroke.

Henderson closed with an even-par 71.

She finished at 17-under 267, one clear of LPGA Tour rookie Sophia Schubert, one of many to make a run at Henderson at Evian Resort Golf Club.

Clarke wins Senior British Open

Darren Clarke birdied the last hole to beat a resurgent Padraig Harrington and win the Senior British Open by one shot.

Clarke and Paul Broadhurst were tied going into the final round, but it was Harrington, a three-time major winner, who soared into contention at Gleneagles, Scotland, with a threeunder 67 to pressure Clarke on the last hole.

The 53-year-old Clarke held firm with a birdie to post a 69 to finish at 10-under 270 and add a senior major to his claret jug at the British Open in 2011.

Ramsay gets fourth European title

Scottish golfer Richie Ramsay claimed his fourth European tour title by winning the Cazoo Classic by one shot.

The No. 329-ranked Ramsay punched the air and roared with delight after holing a par putt from 10 feet at the last hole at Hillside near Liverpool, northwest England.

He shot three-under 69 and finished on 14-under 274 overall, earning his first title since the Trophee Hassan II in March 2015.
