Boros Earns Comeback Win

RSS

Guy Boros fired a 7-under 65 on Sunday to come from five shots down and win the Buy.Com Tri-Cities Open. His 14-under 274 put him ahead of Jeff Gove and three shots in front of overnight leader John Rollins.
 
Boros bogeyed the first hole at Meadow Springs Country Club but that was his only mistake of the round. He made back-to-back birdies at six and seven to shoot a front-nine 35.
 
It was on the back nine where Boros not only caught up to the leaders but passed them. He birdied the first two holes on the back and added two more at 13 and 14. It was birdies at 16 and 17 that sealed Boros' first victory on the Buy.Com Tour.
 
Rollins still had a chance after Boros finished his round but he double bogeyed the 14th and bogeyed 16 and 17 to drop down the leaderboard.
 
'I hit it as good as I can on the back side. I could have birdied every hole,' said Boros, who earned $76,500 for the win. 'After the bogey at one, I thought, 'here we go again'. I didn't know if a 65 was possible, but I kept plugging and got rewarded for playing well.'
 
This marks the second time that Boros has won professionally. He captured the 1996 Greater Vancouver Open on the PGA Tour.
 
'This one was different,' he explained. 'The first one I played in the last group. But, I'll take one anytime.'
 
'You win when it's your turn,' said Rollins, who won this year's Buy.Com Hershey Open. 'It just wasn't my turn. Guy played a good round of golf and deserves it.'
