Korea's An finishes third as McIlroy storms to victory in Wells Fargo Championship

Korea’s Byeong Hun An posted a solo third-place finish in the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday following a stellar final round of 5-under 66 to set himself up for a strong showing at the upcoming PGA Championship, the year’s second major.

The 32-year-old An hit an impressive seven birdies against two bogeys at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina to post his career best score in the $20-million tournament. He finished a distant eight shots back of runaway winner, Rory McIlroy, who claimed his 26th career PGA Tour victory and fourth Wells Fargo Championship title. McIlroy fired a stunning 65, which included a double bogey on his last hole, to win by five from Xander Schauffele (71), the leader over the first three days.

“My game felt good all week,” said An. “Hit it pretty solid, I drove the ball really well and that's what you need on this golf course. Putted pretty decent this week, putted actually pretty good, I saved a lot of pars out there. It wasn't playing easy as the scores (show). I mean, apart from Rory's, it's a pretty tough swing out there. But I'm very happy with my game. I had a shaky start, but I grinded my way through and I made some birdies on the way in,” added the 32-year-old, who totaled nine-under for the week.

His fifth top-10 of the season, and second in successive weeks after a T4 in The CJ Cup Byron Nelson last weekend, extended an exciting run of form for An, who had lost his PGA Tour card in 2021 before rebuilding his game under coach Sean Foley. He moved up to sixth place in the FedExCup standings to solidify his bid to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs Finale, the Tour Championship — exclusive to the top-30 — for the first time in his career. He is also a strong contender to qualify for the Paris Olympic Games in August and make the International Team for the Presidents Cup against the US in September.

An cannot wait to return to the PGA Championship, which starts at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky on Thursday, as it will be his first appearance since 2021 in the year’s second major. The PGA Championship holds great significance for Asian golf as Korea’s Y.E. Yang became the first male Asian golfer to win a
