The Barbasol Championship concluded with an exciting finish, as Vincent Norrman emerged as the winner in a sudden-death playoff against Nathan Kimsey. The tournament, held at the Champions Trace Course at Keene Trace Golf Club, showcased a high level of suspense and drama.
After completing 72 holes, Norrman and Kimsey both finished regulation play at an impressive 22-under 266. The only certainty at that point was that a first-time winner would be crowned on the PGA TOUR. However, it took a playoff hole, the par-4 18th, for Norrman to secure victory with a par, while Kimsey bogeyed the hole.
Along with the title, Norrman earned 300 FedExCup points and a substantial prize money of $684,000. Despite entering the tournament at 114th place in the FedExCup rankings, the 25-year-old Swedish rookie had shown promising form, with two top 10 finishes and six top 25 finishes in recent events. His decision to withdraw from the John Deere Classic earlier to manage his schedule paid off handsomely with this breakthrough win.
Kimsey, on the other hand, was listed at +5500 odds to win the championship. The 30-year-old Englishman, who had undergone wrist surgery in April, was playing in only his third tournament since the procedure. Although he narrowly missed out on the victory, his performance was commendable.
Another standout player was rookie Trevor Cone, who began the final round with a one-stroke lead. Despite experiencing some missteps on the par-3 16th hole, resulting in a double bogey, Cone still managed to impress with a strong showing throughout the tournament. His long odds of +12500 to win made his journey all the more remarkable, providing an exciting ride for his supporters.
Adrien Saddier shared the third-place finish with Cone, both ending at 21-under 267. Saddier, a Frenchman, started the tournament with odds of +10000, and his strong performance validated the faith placed in him by some bettors.
Lucas Glover, who held the lead after the first two rounds, settled for fifth place. He was considered a contender with odds of +2000, second only to Taylor Pendrith (+1400), who finished in sixth place.
