The four-hole closing stretch at TPC Summerlin features classic risk-reward challenges starting with the drivable par-4 15th hole. The par-5 16th is reachable in two shots for most players but is guarded in front by a pond. While not offering as many birdie opportunities as the previous two holes, water is very much in play on the par-3 17th and par-4 18th.

Sam Ryder’s closing 62 gave him the lead for a while on Sunday, but he ended up in third place two shots back.
