Sang-Moon Bae's first PGA TOUR victory didn't come easy. With winds gusting to near 40 mph at times at TPC Four Seasons, the HP Byron Nelson Championship was quite the challenge on Sunday afternoon. Especially the back nine.
The course played to a stroke average of 71.814, or 1.814 strokes over par -- which is the third-highest final-round scoring average on the PGA TOUR this season. Only PGA National (The Honda Classic) and Harbour Town (RBC Heritage) played more difficult in the final round. For the week, TPC Four Seasons played at 70.413, the 11th most-difficult course of the 2013 season.
In the final round, the back nine played to an average of 36.557 or 1.557 strokes over par. Only one hole on the entire back nine played under par in the final round on Sunday -- and it was the par-3 13th hole. Here's a look at the back nine scoring averages and the performances of Bae and Keegan Bradley coming home.
