It was a stunning show for Emiliano Grillo. The World No. 80 has largely flown under the radar but showcased impressive talent.
Not only did he outlast the rest of the field, but he also survived a playoff with two-time PGA Tour winner Adam Schenk. It took Grillo over seven years to earn his second victory this weekend.
He said via Golfweek:
“They say the second is harder than the first and it definitely was.”
Grillo also said this of his Charles Schwab Challenge win:
“It made everything worth it. The playing, all the hours practicing, the effort from my family. It makes you think when you started playing all the emotions come through your head. It’s been tough, but it’s worth every second.”
Scottie Scheffler, the current World No. 1, has to feel good about his outing as well. He was second at the PGA Championship and second today, but it’s been an excellent run for him. With Jon Rahm not playing, he will maintain his spot atop the world for now.
Rickie Fowler was facing the loss of his PGA Tour membership not long ago. Now, he’s turned in a few strong performances, including a T6 at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
Akshay Bhatia is still in search of his membership, but his 56th place likely doesn’t hurt his chances of making it at the end of the season.
Finally, Harry Hall turned his -7 start in the first round into a -7 finish on the last day of the Charles Schwab Challenge. He placed T3 – the best-ever placement of his career.
