Miguel Ángel completes wire-to-wire victory in the Sanford International in Sioux Falls

Miguel Ángel completed a wire-to-wire victory Sunday in the Sanford International at Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  This was the first PGA TOUR Champions' event with fans since returning from a break for the coronavirus pandemic.

Miguel closed with a 5-under 65 to beat Steve Flesch by a stroke and secure his second win this season and his 10th victory on the PGA TOUR Champions.

"How am I going to celebrate?" Miguel said. "We have started already. We had a glass of champagne and now some wine, my favourite drink, together with a nice cigar, an Arturo Fuente from the Dominican Republic. The short period you're going to be here in this world, you have to enjoy yourself", which has always been Miguel's mantra.

Tied for the second-round lead with Steve Stricker, Miguel eagled the par-5 12th for the second time in three days and played the four par-5 holes in 4 under with birdies on Nos. 4 and 16.

"That hole is beautiful," Miguel said about the 12th. "Five-under par in three days, eagle-birdie-eagle, and especially today after hitting a beautiful drive into the wind, I have 208 meters, 230 yards, to the hole and it's perfect for my 5-wood into the wind. I hit a beautiful shot right to the flag and 5-foot putt for eagle. Knock it in."

He parred the final two holes to finish at 14-under and seal the victory.
