Tony Finau is about to break a PGA Tour record that he probably won’t want to celebrate

Michael Thompson’s emotional victory at the 3M Open proved that nice guys can still finish first on the PGA Tour. Just not nice guys named Tony Finau.

Unfortunately for the affable Finau, it was another frustrating high finish without a win. And if it seems like he’s had a lot of those lately, that’s because he has.

As CBS pointed out during the broadcast, thanks to a closing birdie that vaulted him up to T-3, the 30-year-old now has 30 top 10s since his lone PGA Tour title at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open. And as 15th Club’s Justin Ray noted, that ties a tour mark—one Finau has plenty of time to break this season.

As frustrating as racking up so many near-misses must be, Finau has certainly handled it well. He even is getting a kick out of a Sam Harrop song parody about his lack of wins.

And if Finau is looking for a positive, of those other four players, only DiMarco never won again on the PGA Tour. Of course, another positive is that Finau has banked more than $15 million during that span. So, yeah, all things considered he’s doing pretty well for himself.
