MonaVie Distributor-Athlete Bo Van Pelt Finishes 2nd in Showdown with Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods and Bo Van Pelt gave golf fans a drama-filled finale at the AT&T National this past weekend.
In what essentially turned into a match-play back-nine, Van Pelt equaled Woods shot for shot before Van Pelt bogeyed the final three holes.
Woods captured his 74th title, surpassing Jack Nicklaus for second-most PGA Tour wins. Van Pelt posted his 16th top-10 finish since 2010, the most among any player without a victory over that span.
“The ultimate goal is to win golf tournaments,” Van Pelt said Monday in a phone interview with The Oklahoman. “But my goal each week is to put myself in position to win. I figure the more times I do that the better chance I’ll have to win one.”
It was Van Pelt’s third career second-place finish. He owns one career win, capturing the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee three years ago.
