Maximilian KIEFFER -5

Maximilian Kieffer went the distance with Raphaël Jacquelin over the nine hole playoff, and although he wasn’t quite able to pull it off, his tied second place finish looks to have already secured his tour card for next year. The 22 year old talent from Germany ranked 3rd for the Genworth Greens in Regulations statistic for the week (hitting 54/72 greens) and 10th for Putts per GIR, which confirms he was not only hitting a good number of the greens but comparatively the ball was finishing pretty close to the hole as well.
