FARMINGTON — The hottest golfer on the planet the last few weeks doesn’t plan to leave the PGA Tour anytime soon.

Appearing at his annual Tony Finau Foundation pro-am golf event at Oakridge Country Club in Farmington on Monday, less than 24 hours after winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, Finau said he remains loyal to the PGA Tour even as some of the other top golfers in the world have been lured away by the riches of the competing LIV Golf tour.

Finau won the 3M Open on July 24, his third PGA Tour victory, in Blaine, Minnesota, and followed that up with a tournament-record score of 26 under to win in Michigan by five shots.

“To me, at this point in my career, it is so much (more) about the satisfaction of winning golf tournaments and winning against the best players in the world — on what I feel like is the best tour in the world. And the satisfaction that comes from that, no amount of money can buy.” — Utah’s Tony Finau after consecutive PGA Tour wins.
