Jason Day celebrates his win at the RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey



Ontario, Canada - After top ten finishes at Chambers Bay, St.Andrews and weeks of suffering

with symptoms of Vertigo, Jason Day has broken through for his fourth career PGA Tour

victory at the RBC Canadian Open. "I got the ball to the hole this time, said Day - referring

to his birdie on the 72nd hole Sunday at Glen Abbey (as opposed to his putt the week before

at The Open Championship at St.Andrews that came up short - leaving him one stroke out

of a playoff). “To be able to put yourself in contention so many times, especially in major

events and just fall short, even going back to last week leaving the putt short and not being

able to get into the playoff really kind of was disappointing.

“So when I actually had the same putt, it was a very similar putt on the 72nd hole today.

Same things were going through my mind. Make sure you get it to the hole. Fortunately

enough for me, it was quick enough to where I just needed to get it on the line. If I got it

on the line, it was perfect. I just knew as soon as I hit the putt about six feet out, I knew it

was going to come back and go in the hole. “

 

Day joins Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, McIlroy and Jimmy Walker as the only multiple

winners of the 2015 season.

 

54 hole leader David Hearn, who was attempting to be the first Canadian winner since 1954,

entered the final round with a two shot lead. After an even par 72 Sunday, Hearn finished

at -15, two shots back of Jason Day (68) who finished with a total of 271 (17 under par).

 

Bubba Watson who missed the cut at St.Andrews, shot 67 on Sunday and finished solo

2nd.

Zach Johnson Wins 144th Open at St.Andrews PDF Print E-mail

 

Zach Johnson celebrates with the Claret Jug after winning the 144th Open Championship




Fife, Scotland - In another epic major championship, we had a bit of everything at this years

Open at St.Andrews. The weather caused a Monday finish, and the Old Course as it usually

does - delivered an exciting and drama filled finish and worthy champion.

 

The board was loaded early on with the likes of Garcia, Day, Scott, Leishman, Oosthuizen,

Johnson, Spieth and Irish Amateur Paul Dunne. Dunne fell off early, but Garcia hung around

just close enough to still be in it, but never posed a serious threat. Adam Scott was on fire

early on, holding a share of the lead when he reached -15 on the tenth, but crashed coming

in (going 5 over par for his last 5 holes). Jason Day once again had a nice showing, but came

up just short of the prize. Spieth seeking to win his third major in a row, came up one putt

short of reaching the playoff . . . then hung around and watched the conclusion behind the

18th green.

 

Zach Johnson birdied the 18th in grand style making a 28 foot putt to shoot 66 and post

-15 in the clubhouse. Over an hour later, Leishmann & Oosthuizen also posted a 273 total.

In the four hole aggregate playoff, Oosthuizen birdied the first and so did Johnson. Leishmann

made bogey and was never a factor. Johnson then birdied the second, taking a one shot lead

over the South African (who won the last Open at St.Andrews in 2010). After bogeys at the

Road Hole, it came down to the home hole at the home of golf.

 

Johnson missed his birdie attempt, leaving one last chance for Oosthuizen. His putt just slid

by, and at that moment Zach Johnson realized he was the 2015 "Champion Golfer of the Year"

at the 144th edition at St.Andrews. Kudos to Jordan Spieth, who hung around to watch the

conclusion of the playoff and congratulate Zach Johnson.

 

Johnson was emotional afterward, "Dreams have been realized, goals accomplished. I'm

honored to be your Open Champion and Champion Golfer of the Year."

Spieth Wins Deere, Chun Gets Women's Open PDF Print E-mail

 

 

John Deere Classic - Final Round

Jordan Spieth won the John Deere Classic for the second time Sunday



Silvis, Illinois - The roll continues for Jordan Spieth. After a blistering third round

61 vaulted him into the lead on Saturday, he got off to a slow start on Sunday

(two bogeys on his first three holes). The world No.2 player righted the ship just

in time to shoot 68 and reach a playoff at the John Deere Classic with veteran

journeyman Tom Gillis who fired a final round 64 at TPC Deere Run.

 

After both made par on the 1st playoff hole, Gillis blinked first when he missed his

tee shot wide right. Attempting to hit a low punch shot through the trees, his

approach rolled through the fairway and into the water, with Spieth safely on

the green, it was Game Over. With the win, Spieth now has four on the season

and heads to the Open Championship at St.Andrews with supreme momentum.

 

With World No.1 and Defending Champion Rory McIlroy sidelined with an ankle injury,

Spieth, who is going for the 3rd leg of the Grand Slam is the clear favorite. His

thoughts on the home of golf: “I love it. I absolutely love it,” he said. “I love the

town. I love the R&A clubhouse. I love the what do you call it - Himalayas putting

green. The entire experience of being there was really cool. The golf course,

specifically, I think it’s just mind boggling that it can stand the test of time and hold

a major championship centuries after it was built.”


Many questioned why Spieth was in Silvis instead of Scotland the week before the

Open Championship, the 21 year old once again showed his character and maturity

well beyond his age with his perspective on the subject: “This tournament means a

lot to me,” he said. “I mean this jump started my career I’d probably be six months

to a year further back in my career had that shot not gone in and had I not survived

the playoff. I wouldn’t have been in the Fedex Cup playoffs, the Presidents Cup, my

world ranking would have been down given that I played the playoffs extremely well.

So I would have been set back a little bit starting the next year. I could have played

a different schedule. Who knows what could have happened.”

U.S. Women's Open - Final Round

In Gee Chun celebrates her victory at the U.S Women's Open



Lancaster, Pennsylvania - 20 year old South Korean In Gee Chun birdied four of the

final seven holes to shoot a final round 66, and win the U.S Women's Open in her

debut. Chun outlasted third round leader Amy Yang, who struggled mid-round but

battled back to eagle the 16th and birdie the 17th to pull even with Chun. Needing

par on the 72nd hole to force a playoff, Yang made bogey to fall one stroke short

after a final round 71.


For Yang, who held a three shot lead heading into Sunday, it was the third time

playing in the final group in the past four years . . . coming up empty on each

occasion.

 

Inbee Park and Stacy Lewis tied for third at -5. Defending Champion Michelle

Wie finished tied for 11th at -2.

Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open - Day Four

Ricky Fowler heads to St.Andrews with momentum after winning at Gullane



Scotland - After making bogey on the 14th, Rickie Fowler was two shots back. He

went on and birdied the 15th, 16th and 18th to reach 12 under par and deny Matt

Kuchar a chance at victory at the Aberdeen Asset management Scottish Open. It

may have been something that a fellow American told him before the week began:


“Phil [Mickelson] mentioned to me, win this and there’s a good chance you win next

week . . . so I had to take care of business,” said Fowler. “I don’t know what’s so

special about links golf but it’s my favourite. The golf course can play so different

day after day and it presents a new challenge. It was a good test this week at

Gullane."


"I will have a bit of time tonight to let it sink in and get right back at it next week.

"This is a big win. I had a couple of missed cuts after winning the Players, which

was disappointing, so it feels good to get back on form. I had to dig deep. I was a

little bummed to drop a shot on 14 but knew I had some birdie holes coming in. I had

played the last four holes well this week and luckily 14 didn't cost me."


Fowler knows there is still work to be done, "There are a few things we can tighten

up for next week but I am looking forward to getting back to St Andrews, the Home

of Golf, and getting into contention."


Matt Kuchar and Raphael Jacquelin finished tied for second at -11.

Danny Lee Wins Playoff at The Greenbrier PDF Print E-mail

 

The Greenbrier Classic - Final Round

Danny Lee celebrates his 1st PGA Tour title after winning a four man playoff at the

Greenbrier Sunday.


 


White Sulpher Springs, West Virginia - Former U.S Amateur Champion Danny Lee

fired a final round 67 on Sunday to reach -13 and gain entry into a playoff with Kevin

Kisner (64), Robert Streb (65), and David Hearn (67).

 

On the first playoff hole, (the par 3 eighteenth) Lee and Hearn both drained mid range

birdies eliminating Streb and Kisner . On the par 5 seventeenth, Hearn and Lee both

missed their tee shots left, but it was Hearn who struggled to recover and made bogey.

Danny Lee two putted for his par to the Greenbrier Classic and his very first PGA Tour

win.

 

The New Zealander who had already played in 27 events this season, is on a mission

to make it onto his first Team (at the 2015 Presidents Cup). "The reason I played in so

many events was I was really trying to make it into the Presidents Cup this year, Lee

said. "It's back in Korea. That's where I was born. I kind of feel like I was playing good

but not good enough to win a golf tournament, but this week for some reason I just felt

right."

 

After this week, something tells me that International Captain Nick Price was paying

attention.
