Former KU golfer Daniel Sutton finishes 4th at Korn Ferry Tour's Price Cutter Charity Championship
Former University of Kansas golfer Daniel Sutton fired his fourth consecutive round in the 60s on Sunday to take fourth place at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Mo.
Playing in the final group at Highland Springs Country Club, and starting the day three strokes behind Round 3 leader Brandon Wu, Sutton did what he had to do to catch Wu, firing a 3-under par 69 while Wu shot 2-over on Sunday.
But he could do nothing about the stellar Sunday turned in by champion Max McGreevy, who shot his second 64 of the week and took home the title at 21-under for the tournament.
Sutton, who played his final two seasons of college golf at KU after starting at Idaho, finished at 18-under for the week and took home $29,250 from his first Korn Ferry event of the season.
The Birmingham, England, native started the day with an eagle at No. 1 and carded two more birdies on the front nine to make the turn at 4-under.
But a bogey at 10 and another at 18 kept him on the fringe of contention throughout the morning.
Also on Sunday, Lawrence resident and fellow-former-Jayhawk, Chris Thompson, delivered by far his best round of the week, shooting a 6-under 66 to finish at 9-under for the tournament and in a tie for 44th place.
Thompson, who spent the 2018-19 season playing his rookie season on the PGA Tour, made the field through a Monday qualifier and will move forward looking to do the same at a handful of events in the months ahead.
Thompson, who carded seven birdies and one bogey on Sunday — including birdies on three of his first four holes of the day — netted $2,998 for his strong finish.
