Abraham Ancer signed his fifth Top 5 of the season after the tournament held in Palm Harbor, Florida
The Mexican golfer Abraham Ancer finished fifth in the Valspar Championship which took place at the Innsbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida. The ‘Turco’ finished with a card of 272 strokes to seal four days of competition with a score of -12 and have his third top-5 of the season.
Ancer had a solid Sunday after a Saturday where he placed in the top 10 of the tournament. The Tamaulipas native almost finished a round without errors, but a bogey on the 16th hole took away his chance of finishing higher on the board.
Meanwhile, he had three birdies that led him to finish the round with 69 hits and -2 under par.
This Sunday, Abraham Ancer was with a handling of the irons, although he fell short in the approach in some flags. In spite of everything, thanks to his good short game he saved pairs that were vital to leave him among the best five of the tournament.
Similarly, Latin American golf had a good performance, since the Chilean Joaquín Niemann finished tied for eighth place with -9 under par after four days of competition, while the Colombian Camilo Villegas finished tied for 11th place with a total -8 under par.
On the other hand, the glory of the first place went to American Sam Burns, who won his first victory on the PGA Tour after finishing with 267 strokes and signing a score of -17 strokes. Burns shared the lead with Keagen Bradley until the 13th hole and took advantage of a double bogey from Bradley that allowed him to take the lead alone.
