Winning Weekend for Wilson
FJ ambassador Mark Wilson (FJ ICON & SciFlex glove) had two reasons to celebrate this weekend, firstly after claiming victory at this weekend’s Sony Open and secondly for securing an invitation to this year’s Masters.
With the first round a complete washout on Thursday, a 36-hole Sunday shootout was necessitated to get the tournament in with the 5-round Bob Hope Classic starting on Wednesday. Going into the final two rounds, Wilson sat in a three-way tie for second but charged into lead after a third round bogey-free 65.
After his third round, the rush began to get ready for his tee time for the final round. It was estimated that Wilson had only six minutes from the time he finished his third round to the time he was due to start his fourth round. Wilson continued his consistent scoring into the final round, shooting a bogey-free 67 to claim a two shot victory from fellow FJ ambassador Tim Clark (DryJoys Tour).
The win was Wilson’s third PGA Tour victory and just as important for him secures his first appearance at the Masters in April. Speaking after his win Wilson commented “I don’t have too many bogey-free rounds in my career, so it’s pretty cool to have two in the same day.”
