Published 7:52 pm Sunday, January 20, 2019

Andrew Landry posted his fourth consecutive sub-70 round in the Desert Classic Sunday on the PGA West Stadium Course but managed to move up only one place to finish tied for 28th.

Landry fired rounds of 68-67-69-69 over three different layouts in La Quinta, California, to post a 15-under total of 273. It earned him his biggest check of season ($39,235) in a full field event and moved him up 10 places to No. 119 in FedEx Cup points.

Adam Long came from back in the pack with a closing 65 for 26-under 262 to edge Phil Mickelson and Adam Hadwin for the championship trophy.

Landry looked like he was going to go low Sunday and would have if his putter had been hot. The Port Neches-Groves ex quickly got to 2-under with a birdie from 4-feet on the par-3 fourth and from 2-feet on the par-5 fifth.

He would not make another birdie, however, until sinking a 12-footer on the par-4 18th. In between five and 18, he missed seven birdies from inside 14 feet. Three of the misses came inside 10 feet.

Landry’s solid play all week was reflected in him finishing T2 in greens hit in regulation (60-of-72), fourth in driving accuracy (43-of-56 fairways hit) and 10th in strokes gained tee to green.
