Emiliano Grillo lived this Sunday an unforgettable day in the United States. It is that he became champion of the Charles Schwab Challenge, in Fort Worth, Texas, after a dramatic final, with double bogey included on the last hole, and a tight victory on the second playoff hole against the American Adam Schenk. It is the second title for the Chaco on the competitive PGA Tour.
Grillo, who had started the day in fourth place, completed the 72 holes of the Colonial Country Club in 272 shots (eight under par), the same amount as Schenk, who had a chance to win, but could not lower par on the 18th hole.
The Argentine led with two strokes of advantage until the last hole, in which he committed an incredible double bogey that forced him to play the tiebreaker, in which he finally prevailed. First they made par on the 18th and then Grillo was relentless on the par-3 16th.
Grillo, who this season already accumulates five tournaments in the top ten and had only won in this circuit seven seasons ago in the Frys.com tournament, also emulated the legendary Roberto De Vicenzo, who had won this Texas field far back in 1957.
