Currently, Milton Pouha Finau, known as Tony, occupies the 12th place in the World Ranking. He reached this position mainly by virtue of the victories he achieved in the second semester of 2022 (3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic and Cadence Bank Houston Open).
Secondly, the rise in the standings, of him and of his other colleagues, is also linked to the slow but inexorable descent of the players who have joined LIV Golf, who have lost their OWGR points, as we know.
Tony Finau, statements
But Tony Finau is not at all happy with this second aspect.
On the sidelines of the Phoenix Open he said: “Yes, I like them” “I miss several of the international guys (playing on LIV, NDR), like Carlos Ortiz and Abraham Ancer (for the record, both had their first Invitational Series last year in Portland)”.
But the one he misses the most is Brooks Koepka. “He is one of my greatest friends on the Tour” “But I haven’t seen them in almost a year.” Finau turned down LIV Golf’s offer at the time, preferring to remain on the PGA Tour.
“At this point in my career, what matters to me is the satisfaction of winning tournaments and playing with the best players in the world on the Tour that I consider to be the best”. A speech that does not make a wrinkle.
But the fact remains that he misses his friends. The Official World Golf Rankings is a system for assessing the level of performance of professional golfers. It was introduced in 1986, supported by the four major tournaments and six professional tours that make up the International Federation of the PGA Tours, namely the PGA Tour, European Tour, Asian Tour, PGA Tour of Australasia, Japan Golf Tour and the Sunshine Tour.
points also for good final placements in the following tours: Web.com Tour, Challenge Tour, PGA Tour Canada, OneAsia Tour, Korean Tour, PGA Tour Latinoamérica, Asian Development Tour, PGA Tour China, Alps Tour, Nordic Golf League, PGA EuroPro Tour , ProGolf Tour, MENA Golf Tour.
