Chilean golfer Mito Pereira had a great recovery on the last day and finished 6th in the tournament PGA Tour 3M Open, in which the American Camerón Champ was established with a record of 269 (-15).
Along with Venezuelan Jonathan Vegas who finished 2nd, the great Latin American golf standout in the tournament was Pereira, 26, who regained 18 spots to move to sixth place with an accumulated 273 strokes (-11) after having delivered a signed card of 67 (-4).
Champ, 26, achieved his third PGA Tour tournament, his first since the Safeway Open, which he won on September 25, 2019. The winner finished the tour perfectly at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota, with a signed card of five birdies.
The new champion was again consistent and solid both on long strokes to put the ball in the fairways and later when he was on the green with the putt.
His win turned into the big surprise by not being among the favorites, which allowed a bet that placed $ 500 in his favor as champion, to win $ 65,500 with the line.
While the 36-year-old Vegas, who played his best tournament so far this season, finished with a record of 68 shots (-3) after completing a perfect first half with three birdies.
But in the second, the Maturín player did not have the same consistency and inspiration and lost his chances to win after committing two bogeys on holes 13 and 17, respectively, which he shared with two birdies.
South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Chari Schawartzel, both with a record of 68 strokes (-3), amassed 271 (-13) as did Vegas, to share the second place in the standings.
For his part, veteran Colombian golfer Camilo Villegas had his worst record since the tournament began by delivering a signed card of 74 (+3), after having scored 69 (-3) in the three previous rounds, forcing him to drop to 51st, which he shared with six other players.
