Blair Shoots Final Round 69, Finishes 11th; Tourney Honors Casper
Zac Blair shot a final round 69 at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, and it moved him up the leaderboard to an 11th place finish. He shot rounds of 72-70-71-69-282 and pocketed $129,151 to move his total for the year to $374,616.
Tony Finau was in good position after three rounds, but he had his poorest day of the tournament, a final round 74 that dropped him into a tie for 24th. His rounds were 73-68-70-74-285, three behind Blair. He earned a check of $55,440 and moved his yearly total to $744,264.
Jason Day won the title in a four-way playoff with a par on the second hole. Others in the playoff were JB Holmes, Harris English, and Scott Stallings.
The tournament honored Billy Casper, who died Saturday night, with a picture of him on the first tee and flowers. Casper grew up in San Diego. Tributes continued to pour in, including one from Arnold Palmer, who lost a big lead and the 1966 U.S. Open at Olympic Club to Casper. “He was a better player than most people gave him credit for being and is going to be sorely missed in the golf world,” Palmer said.
