Steven Alker’s Round 4 highlights from Charles Schwab Cup Championship
Steven Alker utilized a mixed bag en route to his triumphant victory in the season-long Charles Schwab Cup.
The scenario was defined entering the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship. If Padraig Harrington won the 72-hole event at Phoenix CC, Alker needed a two-way T5 or better to secure the season-long title.
Not only did Harrington win, he matched the PGA TOUR Champions’ 72-hole scoring record, 27 under, en route to a seven-stroke victory over Alex Cejka.
Alker held up his end of the bargain with a third-place finish to win the Charles Schwab Cup. The New Zealand native, 51, completes a magical run from Monday qualifying his way onto PGA TOUR Champions in summer 2021 to winning the circuit’s ultimate prize.
“I’ve played everywhere,” said a grateful Alker on Sunday evening in Arizona. “It’s been an amazing journey, and just to be here and have this opportunity has been amazing.”
