The 2021 PGA Tour Championship Concludes

The PGA tour season officially ended last weekend after three highly contested playoff events concluded with the tour championship at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta, Georgia.

We have seen some great tournaments this past year. One of the top stories was about Phil Mickelson becoming the oldest men’s major champion in May of this year. There were also several surprise PGA tour winners front and center this year including younger guys like Joel Dahmen, Sam Burns, Branden Grace, Matt Jones and Max Homa. There were also more seasoned golfers like Stewart Cink, Sergio Garcia, Martin Laird and Henrik Stenson who won tournaments as well.

We saw some amazing stories and some young golfers get super hot as they made their way towards the tour championship. Golfers like Erik van Rooyen, Viktor Hovland and Cameron Champ all won this year. Patrick Cantlay, the big winner of the $15 million season ending tour championship, made out the best winning three times this year, including the season-ender in Atlanta..

A Recap Of The Final Three Events Of The 2021 PGA Tour Playoffs:

The playoffs began in New Jersey at Liberty National Park directly across from the Statue of Liberty. The tournament saw golfer Bryson Dechambeau set a course record and almost shoot a 59 on Saturday. There were several delays for the tournament due to a tropical storm and the final round on Sunday was postponed to Monday morning due to the inclement weather. At the end of the day, Tony Finau stood strong and took the biggest win of his young career in New Jersey.

Week two of the PGA tour FedEx cup playoffs lead to Cave’s Valley Golf Course in Baltimore, Maryland. The Maryland tournaments were also riddled with drama as Patrick Cantlay and Bryson Dechambeau couldn’t settle it in regulation and had to go to six sudden death holes in order to decide a winner. Patrick Cantlay stood tall at the end and got the biggest victory of his young career in Maryland… until the following week.

Finally, the Tour Championship and the $15 million came down to the East Lake golf club in Atlanta, Georgia. Patrick Cantlay and John Rahm pretty much battled from wire to wire. A couple of golfers came within a few strokes here and there, but no one ever really had a shot to win it all other than Cantlay and Rahm. In the end, Patrick Cantlay came down 18 with a two shot lead steady and solid and finished off Rahm in regulation to take the championship.

All in all it was a fantastic season and 2021 PGA Tour Championship (albeit without the G.O.A.T. Tiger Woods) and several golfers really rose to the top and made names for themselves and a few cagey veteran’s like Harris English, Matt Kuchar and Kevin Na, reminded the field that they can still grab wins on the PGA Tour.
