Max McGreevy claims 31st Price Cutter title

 

The 2020 Price Cutter Charity Championship was all about a youth movement.
While there was a veteran presence in the final round it was the youngsters who brought it home.

All eyes were on Brandon Wu who entered Sunday with a three-stroke lead.

For the first time since Thursday, Wu cards something larger than a par on his scorecard, and falls out of contention midway through the round finishing in a tie for 9th.

It was Mississippi State’s Chad Ramey who would take advantage and have the lead at the turn thanks to six birdies on the front nine.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better chance,” Ramey said.  “I just couldn’t take advantage of it on the back side.”

The 27-year-old would finish third at 19-under par, one stroke in front of 23-year-old Daniel Sutton.  Sutton was four-strokes shy of becoming the first Korn Ferry golfer to win a tournament after qualifying for the event on a Monday.

“I just enjoyed the experience,” Sutton said, “knowing that I can play, and I can compete out here.  I just wanted to prove myself – I think I did.”

Finishing what he started from the opening round, Max McGreevy. The Edmond, Oklahoma, native came into the day tied for ninth but quickly assaulted the leaderboard.

McGreevy had a chance to go 10-under for on the day on 18 – looking for another birdie to extend his lead to two-strokes – but it lips out leaving the door open for Jose de Jesus Rodriguez.

“My heart went from stress free to the stress went up like 20 times more,” McGreevy said.

Rodriguez’s long birdie putt on 18 to force a playoff was a little too long, giving 25-year-old McGreevy his first win on the Korn Ferry Tour with a 21-under par.

“I never won a four-round event before,” McGreevy said.  “I won three-round events.  But to be able to put something together on the final day, an do it in a four-round event, it means a lot to me.”

A side note on McGreevy, his putter his not the laser precision, latest model.  His father won it in a charity event, and Max has had it in his bag for 13-years.
