Memorial Tips: Tony Finau
Course record is T8-T11 and just needs to find form on the greens, something he’s achieved in the past at Muirfield Village.
Tony Finau has been on the fringes of the leaderboard for the past couple of weeks with finishes of T13-T29 and looks ready to pounce.
The 27-year-old is still searching for his first win of the season but he has seven top-25 finishes and his consistency will eventually be rewarded. One of the best ball-strikers on tour, he ranks fourth in strokes gained tee-to-green but is let down by the putter.
Finau is ranked 166th in strokes gained putting, which is why he’s struggled to win but he’s streaky rather than poor on the greens. The good news is he’s comfortable on the greens at Muirfield Village.
His course record is 8-11 and last year gained strokes on the field putting in all four rounds. If he can ally that confidence on the greens with his excellent ball-striking then this could be the tournament for him.
