It was a great weekend for Fidelity Sports clients across several major Tours, with Top 10 finishes across the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and PGA TOUR Latin America.
On the PGA TOUR, Hank Lebioda led the way with a 5th place finish at The Travelers Championship, his best finish of the season. Lebioda held the lead mid way through his final round, and the Top 5 finish moved him to 114th in the Fed Ex Cup Standings, with just six weeks remaining on the schedule prior the start of the playoffs. Lebioda birdied his final two holes of the week, including a hole out from the bunker on the 72nd hole to post rounds of 69-68-67-77 for the fifth place finish.
On PGA TOUR Champions, Tim Petrovic finished 10th place at the Bridgestone Senior Players Championship at Firestone Country Club. It was Petrovic’s 6th Top 10 Finish in a Major Championship on the Champions circuit and his second of 2021. Only two players finished under par for the week, and Petrovic fired rounds of 72-70-72-71 for the 10th place finish.
The Korn Ferry Tour visited Portland, Maine for the “Live and Work in Maine Open”. Four Fidelity Sports clients made the cut. Justin Lower led the way with a 20th place finish, Wade Binfield 25th place, Mark Blakefield 30th and Brian Richey 41st. The Top 20 finish moved Justin Lower to 24th on the Points List with five events remaining on the regular season schedule. The Tour is off this week and will head to Colorado next week for the TPC Colorado Championship.
Brandon Matthews and PGA TOUR Latin America were in Ecuador for the Banco del Pacifico Open. Matthews, the leader on the Order of Merit, has already notched two wins during the 2020/2021 wrap around season and a third win would provide an immediate “battlefield” promotion to the Korn Ferry Tour. Matthews finished 5th place in Ecuador, continuing his spot atop the Order of Merit as the Tour heads to its final event of the year at the Bupa Championship presented by Volvo July 22-25 in Cancun, Mexico
