TRUCKEE, Calif. — ChezReavie won the Barracuda Championship Sunday. He held on in the breezy last round of the PGA Tour’s lone modified Stableford scoring competition for his third tour title.
Reavie was six points ahead at the start of the day and had a six point round to win against Alex Noren on Tahoe Mountain Club’s Old Greenwood layout.
Reavie, 40, became the first PGA Tour player to win 40 or more since Lucas Glover a few years ago in 2021 John Deere. Reavie finished with 43 points.
Ive been working hard, Reavie said. I have been hitting the ball and I knew it was possible. I just kept grinding and here we were.
Reavie was also sanctioned for the European tour and earned spots on both 2024 seasons tours. Reavie also won the 2008 Canadian Open as well as the 2019 Travelers Championship.
Reavie had four birdies Sunday and two bogeys. Players receive five points each for birdie and eagle. A point is deducted for bogey, while three are taken away for double or worse.
Reavie birdied his par-5 12th. His last birdie was on the par-4 16, where he holing an 18-footer. After his flop approach hit a grass seam, Reavie shot forward and holing a 15.-footer. Reavie was able to get up-and-down from a greenside bunker for par on the Par-3 17th, hooting a 5-footer and then tapped in on the Par-4 18th.
I just stayed patient, Reavie said. I knew I had to. I knew there were some guys who would make a lot of birdies very early. I was hoping to be among those guys, but the putter kept me from being that guy. I tried to stay as close as possible to the hole and to give myself some good looks.
Noren shot a 14 point round. The Swede, a 10-time European tour winner who joined the PGA Tour last year, was a 14-point scorer.
Noren said, I love this course. It was quite tricky today with wind. It was a wild week. But once you make it to the end, you realize that this week was a rollercoaster. Then you look back and see that it was a great week. I had a great weekend.
After a seven-point day, Martin Laird finished third at 38.
Really tough out here in the wind ., Laird stated. It was blowing all over the place. I think I started six rounds of Chez, so I knew that he was playing really well. I would have had to play a special round today to catch him.
Mark Hubbard came in fourth at 37 years old, while Scott Gutschewski came fifth at 35.
