Lorenzo-Vera was also really, really far away from a correct bank account. Rinaldi asked Lorenzo-Vera about falling into significant debt.

“Too much,” Lorenzo-Vera said with a laugh. “Way too much considering the money there is on the Challenge Tour.

He says he went on to birdie 16, par 17 and “on the last, I had a really tricky putt, with a break and I don’t know why but I just wanted to chip that over the break.
