Tony Finau got a hero’s welcome from family and friends when he arrived home after his second straight win

August 01, 2022

Like Hansel before him, Tony Finau is so hot right now. After last week’s come-from-behind win at the 3M Open, Finau breezed away from the pack at the Rocket Mortgage Classic on Sunday, claiming his second win in as many weeks and the third in his last 25 appearances. Finau’s wife Alayna flew out to surprise ahead of his final round, and the move paid off for the couple, despite Finau nearly having a heart attack for all of TikTok to see …

The surprises weren’t done there, however. When Finau touched down at home in the early hours of Monday morning, a crowd of family and friends were there waiting, armed with hand-drawn signs, leias, champagne, and, of course, lots and lots of love. Check it out.

Awesome scenes and a feel-good end to a feel-good story, the likes of which of golf has admittedly been a little short on lately. But if you think this hero’s welcome was wild, just wait until Finau wins a major. There won’t be enough room on the tarmac to land the plane.
