I personally love when Long John is in contention, whether it be on the PGA, Champions, or European Tour. He brings a type of energy that no other golfer brings, and the fans love him for that. As for the rest of the tournament, it mirrored the Northern Trust in many ways. The final grouping, American Julian Suri and Englishmen David Horsey, were going back and forth at each other all day. Horsey was able to tie it up with 6 holes left to play.

And then on the 18th, Dave Horsey went OFF THE RAILS. He hit his tee shot into the trees, took a drop, and then hit that ball into the water. He ended up taking a triple, while Suri was cool, calm, and collected in hitting his winning putt.
Congratulations @JulianSuri1 💪You are a European Tour winner!#MiDGolf pic.twitter.com/FtEdiP3yqA — The European Tour (@EuropeanTour) August 27, 2017//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Suri has now become only the third American to win both a European Challenge Tour and European Tour event, joining former US Amateur champion Peter Uihlein and current US Open champion Brooks Koepka. With all 6 American players participating in the event making the cut and two placing in the top 10, the European Tour is becoming a hotbed for American players. Hopefully, as I stated in this blog, we continue to see a rise in European Tour viewership here in the States.
