WITB: Fabian Gomez | FedEx St. Jude ClassicJune 15, 2015 News & Tour
A first PGA Tour win for the Argentinian
Argentinian Fabian Gomez recorded his first win at the FedEx St Jude Classic with a final hole birdie enough to see off English challenger Greg Owen and win by four clear shots.
“For me it’s like a dream come true,” said the Argentinian. “Winning on the PGA Tour is really tough. You have many great players, and winning here with so many players is amazing.”
The 36-year old now has a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour: “Winning a tournament is a big thing,” said Gomez. “Because, you know, you have two-year exemption and after that, probably play a little less stressful every week and not thinking too much, keep your card, you know, and just only win another tournament.”
Greg Owen had held the overnight lead with Gomez, but ultimately fell at the final hurdle: “I just didn’t hit enough fairways today, explained Owen. “If you’d have offered me second at the start of the week, I’d have grabbed it easily.
“It’s been a good week, I just didn’t play well enough to win a tournament.
“To win you’ve got to be special and Fabian proved it. He played great.”
So let’s take a look at the arsenal required to take the 2015 St. Jude Classic.
