Barracuda Championship R4

Collin Morikawa claims maiden PGA Tour victory

July 25-28
Montreux G&CC, Reno, Nevada
$3,500,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 3


American Collin Morikawa carded a trio of birdies in the last three holes to take the Barracuda Championship by three points.

Compatriot Troy Merritt had raced into the lead with a strong third round but faded on Sunday, mixing four birdies with a bogey.

The Barracuda Championship – at the Montreux Golf and Country Club – uses a Modified Stableford format, which allocates points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole.


Eight points are awarded for an albatross, five for an eagle, two for a birdie, zero for a par, minus one for a bogey and minus three for a double bogey or worse.

Morikawa, 22, followed Saturday’s 13 with a 14 to take the title – his first on the PGA Tour – with 47, three better than Merritt and seven more than John Chin and Robert Streb who tied for third.

Scotland’s Martin Laird finished in a four-way tie for seventh on 37 points, scoring five birdies in the fourth round.
