A quick look at Sunday’s final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at the 7,425-yard, par-72 TPC Louisiana:
THE CHAMPION: Seung-Yul Noh earned his first PGA Tour victory with a final-round 71 and 19-under-par 269 score. He missed the Zurich Classic record at TPC Louisiana by one stroke.
FIRST-PLACE CHECK: Noh, who won the 2010 Malaysian Open as an 18-year-old, took home $1.224 million from the $6.8 million purse.
CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR: Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb, two more non-winners on the PGA Tour, tied for second at 17-under 271. Svoboda shot a 69 on Sunday, and Streb had a 70. It was Streb’s first top-10 in 32 PGA Tour starts.
SHOT OF THE DAY: After overshooting the green with his tee shot on the par-4 13th hole, which played at 334 yards Sunday, Noh could have had trouble until his chip shot from 81 feet clipped the flag stick and left him a 31/2-foot birdie putt — which he rolled in to go 19-under.
KEY STAT: Thanks to blustery winds that gusted up to 30 mph, there were no bogey-free rounds Sunday. There were 12 in the first round, eight Friday and 10 Saturday — when there was little wind to contend with.
LOUISIANA CONNECTIONS: Former LSU All-American David Toms finished with a 69 for a 72-hole score of 277. Another former LSU star, Andrew Loupe, had a 73 (285). Former Tulane standout Michael Thompson closed with a 75 (287).
NEXT STOP: The PGA Tour heads to the Wells Fargo Championship, which begins Thursday at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C. The tournament carries a $6.9 million purse.
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR: The 2015 Zurich Classic has been tentatively scheduled for April 23-26 at TPC Louisiana.
THE LAST WORD: “Hopefully, they’ll be happy for the Korean guy … and hopefully, win the next week.”
