Tyry (-7) holds on at The Concession
With a back nine that included five birdies offset by a pair of bogeys, Nikke Tyry of Finland carded a 7-under 65 to win Round 4 of the NEXT Golf Tour Powered by TrackMan.
Frederik Tøttenborg of Denmark also finished -7, but Tyry broke the tie by posting the lower score on the last three holes (-2) — the third tiebreaker under NEXT Golf Tour rules.
Tyry, a pro since 2013 and currently ranked 3,205 in the world, earned $19,101 with the win, the first of his professional career.
“It’s a dream of mine, to be a great golfer,” Tyry said. “I knew there was a possibility I could do it, and then — it’s there. I did it. I showed everyone. I was so proud of myself.”
Because he was only the second player to finish his round, Tyry had to wait 11 “nerve-racking” days to see if his score held up.
“After the round, it was so hard to actually know what I’ve just done,” Tyry said. “So it’s been the most terrible, but at the same time the best 11 days I’ve had in my life.”
Full Round 4 details, including Side Games results and updated Order of Merit, are coming soon.
