“It kind of sucks and obviously he hears it, and it affects him a little bit and he doesn’t like it, and I think that causes them to do it more. It just sucks that that’s out here right now, that they’re trying to irk people like that. It’s just unfortunate.”
The downfall of the final pairing paved the way for Abraham Ancer, Hideki Matsuyama and Sam Burns to stake their claim for the World Golf Championship title, after the trio tied for the lead at 16-under following round four to force a three-man play-off.
As a result, it was Ancer who would eventually prevail on the second play-off hole as a birdie saw him secure his first ever PGA Tour title on his 121st start, whilst becoming the first ever Mexican to win a World Golf Championship.
