Tracker: Seung-Yul Noh wins Zurich Classic

Seung-Yul Noh took control at the Zurich Classic early on Sunday.

Seung-Yul Noh held steady down the stretch for a two-shot victory at the Zurich Classic on Sunday, outlasting Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb at TPC Louisiana.

Noh fired a 1-under 71, including a confidence-boosting birdie on the par-4 16th to give himself some room for error over the final two holes.

It is Noh's first career PGA Tour victory.

Here's how it unfolded on Sunday in Louisiana:

• • •

Update No. 15: 6:23 p.m. EDT

Seung-Yul Noh posts a simple par at the 18th for a two-shot win over Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb, picking up his first PGA Tour victory in the process.

• • •

Update No. 14: 5:59 p.m. EDT

A clutch birdie on the par-4 16th by Seung-Yul Noh moves his lead back to three shots, and he picks up a par on No. 17 to head to the final hole with a nice cushion.

• • •

Update No. 13: 5:35 p.m. EDT

Seung-Yul Noh drops a shot on the par-4 15th hole and is now just one shot clear of Robert Streb, who birdied Nos. 12 and 13 to move to 17 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update No. 12: 4:20 p.m. EDT

Seung-Yul Noh birdies No. 10 to extend his lead over Jeff Overton back to two strokes.

It has become a two-person race, as Andrew Svoboda is in solo third, but is four shots back with seven holes to play.

• • •

Update No. 11: 4 p.m. EDT

Robert Streb's good run comes to a watery halt at No. 9, as his tee ball finds the drink off the tee and leads to a double bogey at the par 3, dropping two shots back of Seung-Yul Noh.

• • •

Update No. 10: 3:35 p.m. EDT

With back-to-back birdies on Nos. 7 and 8 – the latter from 12 feet – push Robert Streb into a tie for the lead at 17 under.

• • •

Update No. 9: 3:29 p.m. EDT

Keegan Bradley might have played himself out of the tournament on No. 6, sending his tee ball into the water, coming up well short on his third shot, sending his fourth shot well past the hole and then a three-putt green leads to a triple-bogey 7 and he is now four shots back of Seung-Yul Noh.

Good news for Bradley? There are still 12 holes to play and he is four shots back.

Update No. 8: 3:04 p.m. EDT

• • •

Update No. 6: 2:29 p.m. EDT

Nothing like a two-shot swing atop the leaderboard to start a round. Seung-Yul Noh bogeys the first hole as Keegan Bradley birdies the second and the two are tied for the lead at 17 under with 17 to play. Robert Streb is one back after an eagle at No. 2 and bogey at No. 3.

• • •

Update No. 2: 12:03 p.m. EDT

TPC Louisiana might have saved its best (read: toughest) for Sunday. While low scores have dominated this week, 19 players already are over par during the final round compared to 14 rounds over par a day earlier.

That's not a problem for Charles Howell III, though, as he's 4 under through 11 holes to rise to T-21 at 9 under.

• • •

Update No. 1: 11:24 a.m. EDT

Robert Garrigus has jumped 21 spots in the early going, with three straight birdies at Nos. 4-6 moving him to T-20 at 9 under; Greg Chalmers also is 3 under today, rising 22 spots through 16 holes to T-41 at 6 under. Former Cal Bears standout Max Homa is among a trio of players who are 2 under so far, along with Charles Howell III.
