Another Strong Showing

Mark Hubbard keeps knocking on the door for a PGA Tour victory, and though the Denver native hasn’t been able to walk over the threshold yet, it’s not for lack of opportunities.

The 2007 CGA Boys Player of the Year hung around the lead all week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, and on Sunday he tied for 12th place despite an even-par 72 in the final round.

The Colorado Academy graduate, who returned to the PGA Tour this season after spending two years on the Korn Ferry circuit, notched his sixth top-13 finish of the season — all better than anything Hubbard had posted in his previous three years on the PGA Tour (2014-17). This season’s big uptick includes a career-best second-place showing at the Houston Open in October.

The 31-year-old ended up 14 under par for the week in Detroit (67-66-69-72), nine strokes behind champion Bryson DeChambeau. Hubbard carded three birdies and three bogeys on Sunday.

The performance in Detroit was worth $131,875 to Hubbard, who surpassed $1.6 million in season earnings.

Meanwhile, the other player in the field who grew up in Colorado, Wyndham Clark, withdrew in the middle of the first round in Detroit with back issues.
