The Venezuelan golfer Jhonattan Vegas showed his best performance in the tournament this Sunday at The Honda Classic, which was played at the PGA National Resort and Spa, located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. There, Vegas managed to sign a card of 74 strokes (+4) to score a total of 276 and place in twelfth place. The champion of the 2014 edition was Russell Henley, who was the winner of the sudden-death playoff against Russell Knox, Rory McIlory and Ryan Palmer. All totaled 272 strokes.

In the four -day event, the native of Maturin gave the following cards: 70 (Par), 66 (-4), 66 (-4), 74 (+4). In the last three days he went among the favorites. Vegas debuted in the Honda Classic in 2012, when he finished in position 67 with eight strokes over par on the court.

Vegas comes from taking part in the Northern Trust Open, where he finished in 40th position after signing a card of 282 strokes, two under par on the court.

"Little by little I’ve felt better physically, which makes me feel stronger and more confident for the next calendar events," he said.

Prior to his involvement in the tournament in Florida, the Venezuelan golfer figured at position 125 in the ranking of the PGA, after accumulating 114 points in the seven events he has participated during the current season. The Honda Classic has been Vegas’ best finish on the PGA Tour since a T4 at the 2012 AT&T National, 20 months ago.
