The Stenson’s participation in the tournament had started with controversy after missing out on the Ryder Cup, but it was enough for him to add a pair of 69s over the weekend to his opening 64 to take the victory, two shots above Dustin Johnson, Matt Wolff and Ortiz.

After his victory, Stenson kept nothing to himself and in the interview he said that he won ‘as captain’, alluding to his departure as captain.

“Yes, I guess we can agree that I played like a captain. It’s been a good first week, it’s good to be here with the guys and feel it. It’s been a busy 10 days and I’m extremely proud to focus the way I did without having been in the race for several years,” he said in an interview.

The participation of Stenson from the beginning was dominant, but on Sunday he made it clear that he wanted to be crowned, staying on top thanks to his birdies on three of his shots. He now has his first win since he was crowned in 2017 on the PGA Tour at the Wyndham Championship.

Thanks to Ortiz’s fourth place, the Fireballs team stayed in third place at -12 under par, while the Majestics stayed in second place and Johnson’s 4 Aces are in first place.

Sergio García was in sixth place with -4 under par, Eugenio Chacarra with +3 in 23rd place, while Abraham Ancer he was left with +8 in the 40th place.
