Svensson Wins Club Car Championship

After birdies on the last two holes of regulation, Adam Svensson birdied the second playoff hole and defeated 54-hole leader Max McGreevy to win the Club Car Championship at The Landings Club. It was Svensson’s second career Korn Ferry Tour victory, and he becomes the first Canadian to win on Tour since Michael Gligic won the 2019 Panama Championship.

Svensson played the final 10 holes of regulation at 5-under par and upended McGreevy’s bid to become the first wire-towire winner on Tour since Kramer Hickok won the 2018 DAP Championship presented by NewBrick.

McGreevy also birdied the final two holes of regulation to match Svensson’s total score of 17-under par.

Both players had a chance to win on the first extra hole, the par-5 18th, but Svensson missed a 12-foot birdie putt after an aggressive run at an eagle try from off the green, and McGreevy missed a 6-footer for birdie. “I thought (McGreevy) was going to make it,” Svensson said.

Svensson and McGreavy both found the fairway bunker off the 18th tee the second time around and were forced to lay up.
