QBE Shootout R3

Sabbatini & Tway win by 2 shots

December 13-15
Tiburón GC, Naples, Florida
$3,500,000
Round 1, Round 2


Kevin Tway and Rory Sabbatini have won the QBE Shootout in Florida on Sunday by two shots.

They fired six birdies and an eagle after the turn, including back-to-back birdies on the 17th and 18th, to card a 12-under-par 60 at Tiburón Golf Club in Naples.

Their round , played under the better ball format, also included a streak of six straight birdies from the sixth hole onwards.

Their birdie spree left the duo on 31 under for the tournament, two clear of Jason Kokrak and J.T. Poston, who finished on 29 under after a 10-under-par closing 62.

“It’s a fun event and it’s great having a partner like Kevin, he took a lot of pressure off me and that allowed me to be more aggressive,” Sabbatini said.

Tway said he had benefited from the presence of father Bob, an eight-time PGA Tour victory and the 1986 US PGA Championship winner, as his caddie.

“It was nice to have dad out there on the bag,” Tway said. “To play well and win with him there was awesome.”
