Author of a fourth-round card of 72(N), Pendrith will have to wait before he can get his hands on his first PGA title. On that final day he managed three birdies but as many bogeys.
With 267 (-21), the representative of the Maple Leaf showed the same accumulation as the Americans Patrick Cantlay (66) and Cameron Young (68). However, it took the trio five more shots than Tony Finau (67) to cover the field four times.
Finau wins a second tournament in a row as he also lifted the 3M Omnium trophy last Sunday.
A little further behind was the South Korean Joohyung Kim (63) the best golfer of the day. In addition to an eagle in the 10th pennant, he collected seven birdies, so he climbed 17 rungs to refer to seventh place in the final standings.
Also in action was Canada’s Adam Svensson (72), who also played par and finished the tournament in 24th place with 276 (-12). Adam Hadwin (67) jumped 23 spots to 37th with 278 (-10).
The only other Canadian to avoid the cut, Roger Sloan (71) was 49th with 280 (-8). Nick Taylor, Michael Gligic and Mackenzie Hughes didn’t survive the first two rounds.
PGA golfers return at the Wyndham Championship next weekend.
