Talor Gooch takes a double title in Singapore


Talor Gooch became the first player to win back-to-back LIV Golf titles after a playoff against Sergio Garcia at Singapore’s LIV Tournament, Sentosa Golf Club.

On the first playoff hole (hole 18, par 5), Gooch teed around the water hazard, hitting a perfect second shot to center green, where he easily birdied in two shots.

Garcia’s second shot, however, ended up in the bunker around the green and the Spaniard was unable to write a birdie, giving Gooch his second consecutive victory and a prize pool of 4 million dollars.

“It’s one of those days that I will remember,” Gooch said. “I grew up watching Sergio. He is one of the greatest golfers of this generation. Challenging him and coming out on top is something I will never forget.”

Two-time LIV Golf winner Brooks Koepka shot 67 to finish third with a -16 result, one stroke ahead of Zimbabwe champion Scott Vincent (67).

British Open champion Cameron Smith (71) finished tied in sixth place with an overall result of -12, while Phil Mickelson shot in 72 strokes, with two double bogeys in his final round, dropping down to 13th place.

In the team standings the RangeGoats (team made up of Gooch, Watson, Pieters and Varner III) took the podium with a result of -34, followed by the Fireballs (Garcia, Chacarra, Ancer and Ortiz) at -34 and the Crusher ( Dechambeau, Howell III, Casey and Lahiri), at -32.
