Since graduating from West High School and turning pro, golfer Tony Finau has tried unsuccessfully to qualify for the PGA Tour. But he keeps showing signs of advancing in the game, with the latest evidence coming in Sunday’s victory in the 73rd Provo Open.
A two-time winner on the National Golf Tour this season, the 22-year-old Finau shot 64-67-65 for a total of 20-under-par 196, earning the $3,000 prize at East Bay Golf Course. He finished six strokes ahead of Farmington’s Zach Johnson, Provo’s Chris Moody and Utah Valley University golfer Mason Casper. Pete Stone finished fifth, another shot back.
