In the final round of his first appearance at the prestigious Masters Tournament, John Huh saved his best for last and, in turn, showed this very well could be just the beginning of many more trips to Augusta, Ga.
On Sunday at the 77th rendition of the major tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club, Huh shot a four-under-par 68 – his best round of the tournament by two strokes – to finish with a four-day two-under-par 286. It was good enough to tie for 11th place, seven strokes behind Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera, who went to a playoff to decide the tournament, with Scott claiming a thrilling victory on the second hole.
Huh dazzled on the 15th, sinking an eagle on the par-five 530-yard hole. He added birdies on the second, third, seventh, ninth, 13th and 14th holes for six on the day. His day would’ve been truly exceptional had it not been for some big hiccups with bogeys on the first and 16th holes and a double-bogey on the par-four 10th.
