Dropping a pair of stellar rounds (90-91) on the PST, Jeff ran away with the 2016 edition of The Signature in dominating fashion. In the first round against Jon, he was 8UP after the first day's play and the only question going into day 2 was would he be able to close it out before the turn. (Spoiler: He would with an 11&10 victory.)
In the other semi-final, Nic won the first 5 holes on day one and Icaro was playing catch up from there. He was able to get a couple back, finishing the day 3DN to Nic, but Nic took them right back to start day 2 and he cruised from there to a 5&3 victory setting up a showdown with Jeff in the Finals.
In the third place match, Icaro lead the way for all of day 1. After falling behind 4 holes on the front 9, Jon was able to get back into it and only trailed 1 heading into day 2. On the 2nd day, Jon took advantage of a slow start by Icaro and took a small lead. It was a tight affair the rest of the way, with Jon claiming a 2&1 victory on the strength of a birdie on 16 and a triple by Icaro on 17.
Thanks to Nic's opening birdie on day 1, Jeff was behind early in the first round of the finals. It didn't last long as Jeff maintained a run of pars and bogeys to gain a comfortable lead, taking a 6UP advantage into the final day. A strong start on day 2 extended his lead over Nic and he was able to close out the victory 9&7 for his 7th career major victory.
Despite his 2nd place finish, Nic moved to the top of the table. Jeff and Icaro are joint 2nd, and Jon sits in the spoon position.
Jeff : 20.4 -> 20.0 -> 19.6
Icaro : 18.4 -> 19.1 -> 19.4
Nic : 18.7 -> 19.0 -> 19.5
Jon : 16.1 -> 17.2 -> 17.3
