Landry regroups to win American Express
LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) Andrew Landry regrouped to win The American Express after blowing a six-stroke lead on the back nine Sunday.
Landry broke a tie with Abraham Ancer with a 7-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole - the jagged rock-ringed, island-green par 3 called Alcatraz - and made a 6-footer on the par-4 18th for a 5-under 67 and a two-stroke victory.
"That was probably the shot of the tournament for me," Landry said about the 17th. "Just to be able to go over there and, to that right hole location, and just hold one up and hit a good distance and have a 7-, 8-footer to look at. ... Thankfully, it went in and kind of made 18 a little bit easier."
