Chaz Reevy won Barracuda Championship on Sunday, holding out in the fresh final round of the PGA Tour’s only modified scoring event to Stableford for his third tour title.
Reevey had a six-point lead early in the day and took a one-point victory over Alex Noren in the Old Greenwood Tahoe Mountain Club layout.
40-year-old Rivi became the first PGA Tour Winner 40 or more since Lucas Glover competed in the 2021 John Deere Classic a year ago. The Arizona player finished with 43 points.
“I worked hard,” Reevey said. “I hit the ball and I knew I could do it. I just kept grinding and here we are.”
The event is also sanctioned European tourReevey earned spots on both tours through the 2024 seasons.
“I’ll be right there,” Reevy said. “I had no idea what it was on the table until I was done. I’m excited. I would like to go to Europe and play and maybe play a BMW or something like that. I liked it very much.
He also won the 2008 Canadian Open and the 2019 Traveler Championship.
Revie had four birds and two ghosts on Sunday. Players receive five points for an eagle and two for a birdie, while a point is deducted for a scarecrow and three points for a double scarecrow or worse.
“Today was stressful with the wind and missed shots early on,” Reevey said. “I was lucky to get some good shots and pull it off.”
Reevey hit 12th on par-5 and made his last birdie on 16th on par-4, hitting a 15-footer after his flop hit a seam in the grass and rushed forward. He went up and down par from the bunker on the green on the 17th pair of 3s, hitting a 5-foot ball, and tapped par on the 18th pair of 4s.
“I just stayed patient,” Reevey said. “I knew that I would have to do it. I knew some guys were going to do a lot of birdies before. I was hoping to be one of those guys, but the stick kind of let me down before. Just trying to keep it. as close to the hole as possible and take a good look around.
Noren had a 14-point round. The Swede is a 10-time European Tour winner who joined the PGA Tour in 2018.
“I love this course,” Noren said. “Today was quite difficult with the wind. It’s been a roller coaster, obviously a week, but when you make the cut you think, well, it’s a great week anyway, and then I played well over the weekend and had fun today.”
Martin Laird was third at age 38 after a seven-point day.
“It’s very hard out there in the wind,” Laird said. “The impulses were everywhere. I think I started with six back from Chaz, so I knew he was obviously playing very well. Today I have to play a pretty special round to catch him.”
Mark Hubbard came in fourth at age 37 and Scott Guchevsky was fifth at age 35.
