Emiliano Grillo celebrates his win at the Frys.com Open
Napa Valley, California - Earlier in 2015, Emiliano Grillo missed a short putt to win in Puerto Rico,
and lost in the playoff. On Sunday at Silverado he closed the deal with a final round 69, and a 9 foot
birdie putt on the second playoff hole to defeat Kevin Na .
Kevin Na shot a final round 70 to share the lead at the end of regulation at -15, but made bogey (on
the second playoff hole) after hitting driver off the deck from an uneven lie, leaving a near impossible
up n down.
Two weeks ago, Grillo rolled in a long putt to win the Web.com Tour Championship . . . and in his
first scheduled start on the PGA Tour he has already earned a trip to the Tournament of Champions,
Masters and has jumped to No.36 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
“You say Masters, I can’t believe it,” said Grillo. "This is awesome, there is no words to put in to
explain this. This is the greatest moment of my life golf-wise. I stayed positive, I learned a lot
from the one in Puerto Rico. My caddie asked me was I 100 percent and I said yes. I want to win
it. You know how they say it, third time is charm. Most important than the win was the putt on
the last hole. Made me believe that I can hole putts on the last hole. You know, I did it then; did
it twice today on the last hole basically.You know, makes you believe you can do it. That’s huge.”
Despite neither playing at Napa, Jason Day re-took Jordan Spieth as No.1 in the OWGR.
