Ahn runner-up at Wyndham Championship; Glover wins.

Byung-hoon Ahn of South Korea finished runner-up at the Wyndham Championship on the U.S. Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour ($7.6 million purse).

Ahn carded five birdies and two bogeys for a 3-under 67 on the final day of play at Sedgefield Country Club (par 70-7,131 yards) in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.

With a final total of 18-under par 262, Ahn finished the tournament in a tie for second place with Russell Henry (USA).

It was Ahn’s fourth career PGA Tour runner-up finish, joining the Zurich Classic in May 2016, the Memorial Tournament in June 2018 and the RBC Canadian Open in July 2018.

In 178 PGA Tour events, Ahn has no wins and four runner-up finishes.

“I’m disappointed that I didn’t win, but second place isn’t bad,” said Ahn. “This year, my goal is to make it to the season-ending Tour Championship.”

Lucas Glover (USA) won the event with a final total of 20-under-par 260.

Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, earned his fifth Tour victory in nearly two years after the John Deere Classic in July 2021. He earned $1.368 million (approximately $1.78 billion) for his victory.

The tournament was the final event of the 2022-2023 PGA Tour regular season.
