China’s Marty Zecheng Dou was left kicking himself after losing a two-shot lead and then a playoff at the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic on Thursday (Hong Kong time). The 25-year-old, who led overnight, was two strokes up with three holes to play but bogeyed 16 and 18, allowing Brandon Harkins to draw level. Dou’s final round 3-under 69 left on 18-under for the tournament. Both players traded pars on the first playoff hole, before Harkins, who shot a final round 68, went on to claim his first Korn Ferry Tour victory with a par after Dou found the penalty area twice to end a disappointing final day The Abaco Club. “When you get to the point [of winning], two strokes lead with three to play, I’m thinking of just making pars to win it,” Dou said. “Losing is a little different definitely. We are talking about going after a win, we’ve already got one hand on the trophy. It’s pretty tough.” "Like" if your hands would've been sweating on these short putts to extend the playoff. pic.twitter.com/gxcTCLBbQI — Korn Ferry Tour (@KornFerryTour) January 26, 2022 Dou appeared to be cruising towards the finish line, and was 5-under coming off the 15th green, but he then hooked his drive into the penalty area on 16 for his first bogey of the day and followed that with a wayward fairway wood approach into the penalty area on the closing hole. “I was struggling into the wind,” Dou said. “A big snap-hook on 16 and then a big slice on 18. When it gets into that [wind], it’s just my golf game. It’s nothing with my mental, it’s nothing with anything else. I’ve got to work at it. “It’s just one tournament, it’s nothing big. That makes me feel it’s fine as this is only the second week of the year. I’ve feel I’ve got a lot of time after that. I mean I gave it a go, I gave it a good run. Brandon played really good and it was fun playing with him in the last group. A lot of tension and a lot fireworks too.” The 2022 Korn Ferry Tour season continues next Thursday, February 3 with the opening round of the Panama Championship.
