In order to be in the Augusta Masters for the first time as Sepp Straca in Vienna, Matthias Schwab had to win the Texas Open at TPC San Antonio.
He didn’t and he’s still happy! 27-year-old Styrian climbed to eighth with a No-Ghost 68 final in the $8.6 million event in Texas.
Schwab (69-72-70-68) ended up four strokes behind American JJ Spawn (67-70-69-69). For his first win on the PGA Tour – the ninth player of the season to win a Tour round for the first time – the 31-year-old American cashed a check for $1.548 million.
Schwab also cashed in. By placing third out of the top ten in six weeks, the Vanderbilt University graduate has increased his annual prize count in the United States to $748,806.
This means that Ennstaler has improved by 29 places in the US FedExCup season rankings and is currently 86th.
“It feels good to be doing well on the US Tour. I’m currently playing good golf and it’s very exciting to be able to play up front week after week,” Schwab reports.
Austria counts No. 3 in the world rankings after Sepp Straka (No. 72) and Bernd Weisberger (No. 75): “I’m already 86th in the FedExCup and I know how important that is, given that the top 125 in this ranking is a Tour card for next season and I’m going to play a class good.”
Schwab has already returned to the 159th place in the world rankings
How Schwab, who improved from 175th to 159th in Week 14 of the World Golf Rankings, will go on for the next few weeks is still open.
“I’m taking a break this week, but may return to RBC Heritage next week,” Schwab said in a broadcast.
On the island of Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA, in the eastern United States, the spectacular Harbor Town Golf Links will take place from April 14 to Easter with a total prize money of $8 million.
Schwab clearly wants to use his good form and get the best out of the PGA Tour.
