Finau closed with a 67 to reach 17-under and win the 3M Open, his third PGA Tour title, by three shots.

“I was just chasing all day, that’s all I remember,” said the American. “Really all week. Scott played amazing golf and the thing about out here, I just know what the experience that I have, you just have to keep playing. Anything can happen and that’s what I did.

“When I really needed to hole putts, I did starting on 11, again on 14, 15, 16. I mean, I made some really crucial putts when I really needed them. Then a little bit of some heroics on the stretch on 17 and 18. A crazy bounce on 17. I called bank in the air, so I think that cancels everything out, but I did get a great bounce there and I took advantage of that.”

“But it was quite a different feeling when I got on the 17th tee because I was just – I thought I had – I was almost chasing 20 under all day I felt like. Seemed like Scott wasn’t letting up all tournament, so to all of a sudden have the lead, I will say I got quite nervous on 17 just because it was a whole different feel on how the week was going. I never was near the lead. I was near the top of the leaderboard, but I was never within four or five shots.

“All of a sudden I was the one leading the golf tournament. Sometimes you’ve got to learn how to play with a lead, so it was a tournament that I just — I didn’t know I was going to be in that situation. A couple squirrelly shots on 17 and 18, but I willed my way in and really happy to get that W.”

South Korea’s Sungjae Im shot a 68 for a share of second place at 14-under alongside Argentinian Emiliano Grillo who carded a 1.

Piercy, after breaking the 54-hole record on Saturday, made four birdies, six bogeys and a double bogey to close with a 76. He finished third at 13-under alongside fellow Americans James Hahn (65) and Tom Hoge (70).
