For the first of the three stages of the Korn Ferry Tour playoffs, fans of suspense have already been served. On his arrival at the start of the 18th in the last part, the Englishman Aaron Rai, at -20 in total, was one step ahead of his playing partner, the American Greyson Sigg. The latter probably did not expect that one par would be enough to secure him the trophy, and he was wrong: due to a double bogey, Rai had to settle for second place. equally with another American, J.J. Spaun. Sigg, already guaranteed to climb on the PGA Tour next year, thus gleaned his second victory on the Korn Ferry Tour, taking the lead of the standings of the season. A position that could give him a glimpse of a total exemption on the big circuit, as well as a qualification for the Players Championship next year.

For Paul Barjon, which remained on two cards under the par, the last day went less well. The only Frenchman involved in these play-offs finished with a score of 73 (+2), bringing his total to -4, for a 73rd place. Despite his four birdies, the New Caledonian suffered above all from conceding six bogeys. He still remains well enough ranked to play the second tournament finale, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, played from Thursday in Ohio.
