Unlike last week, in the final round that drew attention with the pride match between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour, Answer from LIV Golf won a complete victory. Last week at the Hero Dubai Desert Classic, World No. 1 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) won the championship by one stroke over Patrick Reed (USA), who is active at LIV Golf.
Answer, who entered the final round with a two-stroke lead, allowed Young, who had four birdies up to the 7th hole, to tie for the lead. However, he caught a birdie on the 8th hole (par 3) and took a two-stroke lead over Young, who committed the same bogey at the hole, and kept the lead until the last hole. Answer was pursued by one stroke again with a bogey on the ninth hole, but escaped the pursuit due to self-destruction of Young, who committed bogey and double bogey on the 13th and 15th holes. Young, who fell behind by 4 strokes, added birdies on the 16th and 18th holes belatedly, but it was not enough to overturn the game.
