ST. Andrews, Scotland — Viktor Hovland was bidding from Norway to be the first player to win the Men’s Major Championship. He co-leaded with Rory McIlroy in the final round of the British Open on Sunday, clearing the field with both 16 unders and four shots.
By the end of the day, Hovland finished in 4th place in Thailand — 6 shots late. Winner Cameron Smith After shooting a disappointing 2 over 74. The score came after 66 seconds in a row in the second and third rounds.
“It was a little anti-climatic after that day. [Saturday]”Hovland said. “I thought I was going to stay there for a little longer. I didn’t have it today. It didn’t hit very well and putt didn’t work as well as yesterday. It was a frustrating day.”
Hovland didn’t do anything in the front nine, hitting one over 37 and not getting better in the back.
“I just didn’t hit it enough,” he said. “I could have gained a little more momentum if I made a little more putts early, but at the same time, I made too many mistakes and couldn’t get too close to the pins to get more birdies.”
Hovland claimed that he loved the experience of playing in the last pair in the majors, leaving without regrets after winning the first top 10 finishes in the majors.
“It’s cool,” he said. “That’s our practice. I was a little disappointed, but I didn’t have it, but it was a great experience. It was a good learning experience for a week, and I feel it will be better then.”
