Tony Finau wins Rocket Mortgage Classic with record-breaking weekend

Detroit — Before each season, Tony Finau writes down his goals.

Going into 2021-22, Finau had two that stood out – winning multiple events and winning the FedExCup Championship.

Tony Finau kisses the Rocket Mortgage Classic 2022 trophy after winning the tournament on Sunday.

One was ticked off at the Detroit Golf Club on Sunday, and the second suddenly seems much more accessible than it did a few weeks ago.

Finau, the 16th player in the world entering the week, shot a 5-under 67 to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic at 26 under, a game-high score in Game 4 of the tournament. It was his second win in a row after winning last week’s 3M Open near Minneapolis, and with one week remaining in the regular season he moved up to seventh in the FedExCup standings with at least a chance to run for the season-ending championship and the top prize of $18 million.
