Talor Gooch Wins Consecutive at LIV Singapore

 Talor Gooch Wins Consecutive at LIV Singapore

This past weekend, Talor Gooch once more created LIV Golf history. At the Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore, Gooch defeated Sergio Garcia in a one-hole sudden death playoff to capture his first back-to-back victories on the breakaway circuit.

 

Gooch broke the 36-hole scoring record at the LIV event in Adelaide last week by shooting stunning back-to-back 62s. Gooch went on to win the competition by two strokes. Gooch now has two winning checks totaling $8 million on his way after winning in Singapore.

 

At 13-under, Garcia and Gooch were tied going into the final round. All day, Brooks Koepka trailed behind Gooch and the former Masters champion at the top of the leaderboard.

 

All three players ended with scores of 4-under 67, but Koepka fell short of making the playoff by one stroke. Gooch completed the par-5 18th hole in the first and only playoff hole in two strokes, while Garcia's second shot went into the greenside bunker. Garcia missed his up-and-down, and the Oklahoma State graduate comfortably made a two-putt for a birdie.

 

Gooch also guided RangeGoats GC to win, the group's first team championship.

 

"We've been discussing taking the podium up there. I've been warning them for a while now that I'm going to spray champagne in their faces. It was simply a matter of time, and we knew it was coming," Gooch added.

 

I'm aware that I won't be able to play golf at this level indefinitely. So, just take it all in while it lasts and try to make the most of it, Gooch added. "When it leaves, you make every effort to board the train as soon as you can. So you try to appreciate these moments, feel these emotions, and remember them so that you can return to them as soon as possible when they pass.
