  • Jason Dufner and Brandt Snedeker closed with a final-round score of 11-under-par 61 and a 54-hole total of 30-under-par 186 to win the 27th annual Franklin Templeton Shootout by two strokes over the team of Harris English and Matt Kuchar. Dufner and Snedeker each won $385,000 with the victory, while English and Kuchar each won $242,500 with their second-place finish.
  • The winning total of 30-under-par 186 was the highest winning score by a team since Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson finished with a 54-hole total of 30-under-par 186 in 2010.
 This was Dufner’s third appearance in the Franklin Templeton Shootout and his best previous finish was a third place in 2012 with Vijay Singh. Snedeker was making his fourth start in the event. He finished T4 in 2012 with Davis Love III.
  • Although they finished two-strokes shy of the team of Jason Dufner and Brandt Snedeker, Harris English and Matt Kuchar had another stellar showing in this event. The team won the title in 2013 and has finished second each of the last two years. In that span, they are a combined 93-under-par in their nine rounds here.
  • Cameron Tringale, who teamed with Jason Day to claim last year’s title, finished fifth with partner Camilo Villegas, who was a last minute addition to the field after Day and his replacement, Chris Kirk, had to withdraw.
  • The team of Daniel Berger and Charley Hoffman turned in an impressive showing in their debuts in the tournament. They finished third overall with a 54-hole score of 26-under-par 190.
