IT'S TOUGH TO WIN ON TOUR.

Talented Tony Finau, who has won a lot of money but not a lot of tournaments, learned that lesson again on Sunday at the 2020 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Finau had the lead, and it looked to me as if he had the tournament with two holes to play. But Webb Simpson had other ideas.

Simpson went birdie-birdie to tie at the end of regulation. Then, on the first playoff hole, the 2012 U.S. Open champion rolled in another birdie for the win. And that was that.

But Finau and Simpson are still the best of friends.

"I definitely didn't give him the tournament,'' Finau said. "Unfortunately, it's how the cookie crumbles. ... I love Webb."

"It's hard," Simpson said. "He is a great friend. Our wives are friends, and he's one of the best guys on tour."
