How bad was the weather? Awful! But Dylan Frittelli battled his way to a two-under-par 69 in the final round on Sunday to finish in a share of 22nd in the PGA Tour’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

Frittelli made four birdies and two bogeys in wind and rain to climb to seven-under-par for the tournament, up 15 places in that final round. He was eight strokes behind the winner, Lucas Herbert of Australia, who also closed with a 69 to gain his first PGA Tour win, having on twice on the European Tour. Herbert held off a charge from Patrick Reed, who carded a final-round 65 to finish within one stroke of the top of the leaderboard. Danny Lee of New Zealand shared second with Reed after a closing level-par 71.

Garrick Higgo felt the full effects of the weather as he battled to a four-over 75 in the final round to finish 24 places lower than he started the final round, in a share of 34th. Christiaan Bezuidenhout also battled through the weather with a three-over 74 to finish one-under for the tournament and in a share of 57th.
