American Hudson Swafford added his third PGA golf tournament today by winning The American Express, which was played at Pete Dye Stadium in La Quinta, California (USA) after concluding the fourth round with 64 shots for a total of 265 (23 under par), two less than his compatriot Tom Hoge.

Swafford (70 65 66 64) achieved an eagle -hole 16, par five- and nine birdies for three bogeys, a card with which the 34-year-old golfer from Tallahassee (Florida) won the title, which already accompanies the one obtained in September 2020, the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship, and the one obtained in January 2017, the Career Builder Challenge.

Second place in the drawer went to Tom Hoge (65 66 68 68), who said goodbye with a score of five birdies for a bogey

Brian Harmann (67 70 67 64), Lanto Griffin (67 65 69 67) and Lee Hodges (62 72 64 70) completed the podium, full of Americans.

The Spanish Jon Rahm (66 70 67 71), who signed his worst card today, concluded with a total of 274 shots, nine off the lead, in fourteenth place, while the Colombian Camilo Villegas (69 68 70 70) was three strokes behind the Biscayan, in thirty-third place.

With 70 hits and a total of 278 hits, the Mexican Abraham Ancer (67 71 70 70) bid farewell to the tournament, in 40th place, while the Argentine Emiliano Grillo (71 65 73 73), who today exceeded par, was relegated to position 63 with 282 strokes.
