The Chilean golfer had a dream start to the season Myth Pereira, who finished third in the Fortinet Championship which was played at the Silverado Resort and Spa North, in Napa, California.
The winner was the American Max Homa, who closed with a round of 7-under 65 for his third career victory on the PGA TOUR. Homa totaled 269 hits (-19) and outscored Maverick McNealy (-18).
Pereira closed with a 4-under-par 68 lap to add 272 hits (-16) and thus achieved his best performance in his short experience on the PGA TOUR, where he already had two other top-10s last season..
“I’m very happy with how I built the round today, it wasn’t easy, the greens were getting harder and harder and it got windy and in any direction, so I’m happy with how I played, without doing any bogey and finishing very close to the winner”Said Pereira, who from the beginning of the week was close to the top.
The Chilean had an ideal start with a birdie on the first hole, but from there he chained eleven consecutive pairs until a new birdie arrived on the 13th, after leaving his second shot less than a meter from the hole.
“I played very solid, I made some key putts to stay close in the round and with the birdies at the end I was able to close a great week”, Pereira took advantage of the two par-5s at the end, 16 and 18 and thus was only in third place, beating Marc Leishman and Talor Gooch, who were tied for fourth place.
“Now we have to keep working hard, I have a lot of activity in the rest of the year, about six tournaments before the end of the year, so we don’t have to relax. the season without so much nerves and I hope I can continue like this, at this level”Closed the 26-year-old Chilean who is third in the FedEx Cup.
