Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman beat Graeme McDowell and Emiliano Grillo by one shot, to claim the QBE Shootout in Florida. Americans Kizzire and Harman shot a final round score of 61 to finish on 30 under par, and that proved to be just enough to see off the rest of the field.
McDowell and Grillo picked up three shots on the front nine and put together a run of seven straight birdies from the 11th, but they fell just short, finishing on 29 under.
Luke List and Charles Howell III (61), Kevin Na and Bryson DeChambeau (62), and Gary Woodland and Charlie Hoffman (63) tied for third on 28 under after Sunday’s fourball format.
LPGA star Lexi Thompson, who impressed throughout the event, and Tony Finau finished seventh on 23 under after a 65.
Despite being under heavy pressure, Kizzire and Harman held their nerve, and an eagle at the par-five 17th saw them go top of the leaderboard, and a par at the 18th was enough for victory.
