Marc Leishman couldn’t find a fairway on Sunday. Almost literally. He hit just three of 14 fairways over the final round of the 2020 Farmers Insurance Open but somehow strung together a 7-under 65 to defeat Jon Rahm by one and Rory McIlroy and Brandt Snedeker by three.
“I didn’t actually hit it that well off the tee today,” Leishman told CBS Sports after his round. “[The knack for coming from behind is] putting, always. You’re not going to win PGA Tour events if you’re not putting well. I putted as good as I’ve probably ever putted today.”
This is true. Leishman led the field in putting on the day and on the week, and despite finishing nearly last in strokes gained off the tee (it was a tough day for the strokes gained tee-to-green folks like myself!), he held on for the fifth win of his career.
“Number five, that sounds pretty good,” Leishman told CBS Sports. “On Australia Day. I didn’t have my best stuff today. This feels pretty amazing.”
Leishman made 11 one-putts and sank 151 feet of putts to close out the win. It’s not a sustainable formula, and if you would have told me that someone (anyone) would hit just three fairways in the final round at Torrey Pines…
