Yun wins by two at Rolling Green Championship – PGA Tour

SPRINGFIELD, Pennsylvania—Entering a long final day in a tie for fifth, trailing by four, Andrew Yun followed a third-round 66 with a bogey-free final round 65 to come away with the victory at the Forme Tour’s weather-delayed Rolling Green Championship Saturday.

Tying Yun for the lead with Yun after shooting 5-under through 12 holes in the final round, David Pastore slowed down with bogeys on Nos.

“It’s huge! It hasn’t sunk in yet,” said Yun of the victory that allowed him to charge into the third spot of the Forme Tour standings with only one tournament left to play this season.

Playing in the antepenultimate group in a day in which the players weren’t re-paired for the final round, Yun began his final round by birdieing three of the last five holes on the front nine, Nos.

I guess it was a good way to tell where we were, trying to stay ahead of him,” commented Yun of the race within his group.

With the back nine playing tougher Saturday afternoon, birdies were hard to find, and two of them proved enough for Yun to open some room at the top.

“ and another great up and down on 18, as well.

Starting Wednesday, this coming week, the Forme Tour will land in Huntsville Golf Club outside Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, for the season-ending Forme Tour Championship, an event originally scheduled for The Ridge at Back Brook in Ringoes, New Jersey.

With today’s victory Andrew Yun climbed into the third spot of the Forme Tour Points List, only 157 points behind TrevorWerbylo, who managed to remain the Forme Tour No.

During his college career, he won the Pac-12 Conference individual championship in 2012, defeating, among others, UCLA’s Patrick Cantlay by five shots.

Xiong continued his solid play of late, using his sponsor’s exemption this week for the top-10.

“I made a good 15-footer on five, and on seven, that par-5, I hit it over the green and hit a decent chip.

I think we were talking after the first round that things can change so quickly.

It was a really good day on the course—playing with Andrew —pushing each other.

“I wasn’t really trying to make it, but it went in and all of a sudden I’m one back.

I made one bogey, and on 17 that’s where I had the only shot I let get away.

The next goal is to get that top-10, and at least now I’m within striking range for that.
