Sam Burns celebrated the greatest success of his career by winning the World Golf Championships in Austin, Texas.

Austin – The 26-year-old American prevailed early in the final duel after 13 holes played against his compatriot Cameron Young.

The US duo caused surprises in the semi-finals of the $20 million match play. Burns defeated world number one and defending champion Scottie Scheffler of the USA while Young defeated Northern Ireland’s golf star Rory McIlroy.

“It’s been an incredible week. I’m so grateful,” Burns said after his win at the Austin Country Club. He received $3.5 million in prize money for his fifth win on the PGA Tour. McIlroy defeated Scheffler in the game for third place.

At the World Golf Championships, 64 of the world’s best golfers compete in a group stage followed by a knockout round. In this tournament, the winner is not determined by the total number of hits over four days, but in duels man against man. dpa
