‘When Will Tony Finau Win Again?’: Musician Sam Harrop makes good on request to write victory lyrics

Tony Finau flipped the script at the PGA Tour’s Northern Trust on Monday, beating Cameron Smith in a playoff to end a victory drought that had lasted 1,975 days since his first win at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open. In that span, Finau had 40 top-10 finishes on Tour, causing himself and his fans to ponder when he might win again.

One of those golf fans was UK-based musician Sam Harrop, who previously had reworked the lyrics to REO Speedwagon’s “I Can’t Fight this Feeling” into “When Will Tony Finau Win Again.”

If you don’t follow Harrop on social media and YouTube, you should. Sitting at a piano, Harrop has parodied a handful of famous songs to reflect life on Tour. Bryson DeChambeau versus Brooks Koepka? Got that one. Bryson versus science? Covered that too. Harrop’s new lyrics are typically spot on and sometimes biting.

Such was the case when he asked if Finau would win again. And now that Finau has ended the winless streak, Harrop made good on Finau’s request to rewrite his lyrics whenever that second victory did come along. Check it out.
