Tony Finau lights up PGA Tour with back-to-back wins after claiming Rocket Mortgage Classic

Tony Finau powered to his successive PGA Tour successes after sealing the Rocket Mortgage Classic by five strokes.

The American, who triumphed in the 3M Open a week prior, was rarely troubled in the final round in Detroit. 

Finau split six birdies with a single bogey as he finished the tournament on 26 under par.

His score was well-clear of runners-up Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Young and Taylor Pendrith, who were all tied on -21.

Speaking to reporters after his victory, Finau said: "What a wonderful couple of weeks it's been.

"I won the golf tournament last week and for some reason I left - bogeying the 18th hole - I had kind of a sour taste in my mouth.

"I think it just gave me extra motivation to put myself there again this week and just prove to myself the type of champion that I am."

England's Matt Wallace was the best of the British contingent, finishing equal 10th on 16 under.
