Playoff victory

The 31-year-old from Utah beat Cameron Smith in a final-day playoff to win the New Jersey contest, having played 142 events since his last win on the PGA Tour in Puerto Rico more than five years ago.

In that time Finau has also finished runner-up on 10 occasions and felt relieved and validated to have finally secured his second title.

Finau finished tied with Smith on 20 under, having been three shots behind Jon Rahm midway through the event's final round.

But he put on an impressive run during the back nine to go level with Smith and he went on to win the first of this campaign's three FedExCup playoff events.

Storm delay

The final round of action had been delayed to Monday by heavy rain from Storm Henri but Finau kept his composure and is confident he can now string together a run of strong performances.

Speaking about his triumph, Finau said: "I feel like it's been a long time coming but I also feel like you have to earn everything out here.

"Nothing's given to you and I was able to earn this win, and you know, hopefully the future continues to be bright. I'm playing great golf [and] I feel like I can go on a run, so why not continue right on to next week.

"This is extremely special."
