Rory Ends Drought, Wins Again at Quail Hollow PDF Print E-mail

 

Rory acknowledges the crowd after tapping in for the win at Quail Hollow



Charlotte, North Carolina - Starting the day two shots behind 54 leader

Keith Mitchell, McIlroy had played a nearly mistake free final round thru

17 holes when he walked to the eighteenth tee with a two-stroke lead at

11 under par. He proceeded to hook his tee shot left of the creek that

runs the entire length of the finale to the "green mile". After taking a drop

on the advice of his caddie Harry Diamond, the 32 year old Ulsterman hit

his approach on the green - leaving a two-putt 43 ft to end his 18 month

long winless drought. He properly executed the lag putt and tapped in for

his 19th PGA Tour victory. McIlroy finished with a final round 68 (-10 total)

for a one stroke victory.


Rory said it was a long time since his last win in 2019. "Life has changed a

lot for me, as a dad, winning on Mother's Day thinking of Erica, thinking of

my mum back home. It just feels awesome," an emotional McIlroy said.

"This is one of my favorite places in the world, and to break the drouhgt

and to win . . . yeah, it's awesome."


With the wind McIlroy moved to 17th in the Fedex Cup Standings.


Abraham Ancer finished second at 10 under par after a final round 66.

Viktor Hovland and Keith Mitchell finshed tied for third at -8.

Sam Burns celebrates after winning at Innisbrook Resort

 


Palm Harbor, Florida - Sam Burns has had his share of chances in his

young career to close the deal (half a dozen times he's held the lead

in a PGA Tour event and twice he's held the 54 hole pole position this

season), those failures paved the way for the final round Sunday on

the Copperhead at Innisbrook - he fired a final round 68 to win the

Valspar Championship by 3 strokes over Keegan Bradley.


"I always felt that you had to play perfect golf to win,'' Burns said.

"I always felt that you had to play your absolute best on a Sunday to

win. And after those experiences, I realized that it's not the case. I

was trying to do too much.''


Tied with Burns, Keegan Bradley's hopes for victory ended when he

made double-bogey on the par 3 thirteenth after hitting his 8-iron into

the water.


Burns enjoyed the walk up the final hole with a four shot lead, he had

closed the deal. "I've worked so hard for this moment,'' Burns said.

"They've all sacrificed so much.''


The win assured Burns of his spot in the U.S Open at Torrey Pines

and moves him to 44th in the OWGR.

Leishman & Smith Win Zurich Classic PDF Print E-mail

 

Marc Leishman and Cam Smith celebrate their victory at TPC Louisiana

 

 

Avondale, Louisiana - Marc Leishman and Cam Smith overcame a near

disaster on the 16th hole Sunday when Smith sank a seven-foot par putt

on the first playoff hole to defeat Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel

to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana.

 

On the first extra hole, Oosthuizen, hit his tee shot into the water and the

South African duo finished with a double-bogey. “As soon as Louie hit his

drive into the water, we were always going to lay up (on the par-5 hole),”

said Smith, who claimed his third PGA Tour victory, all in playoffs.


“It was nice to hit three good shots to get the win. “It was a pretty cool

week and we really played some good golf. It was really tough coming in

on the back nine, but we hung in there and got it done.” Leishman and

Smith posted a 2-under-par 70 in the alternate-shot format of the final

round, while 54-hole leaders Schwartzel and Oosthuizen posted 71 (both

both teams finished at 20-under 268).

 

Oosthuizen’s wayward drive to open the playoff was pivotal, but another

came when Smith hit is drive on the 302-yard 16th hole into the water

left of the green. Leishman took a drop on the fringe left of the hole and

holed the chip for a birdie to win the hole and square the match, before

both teams finished with a bogey on the 71st hole and a par on the last

to finish regulation play. “I wasn’t walking up there thinking I wanted to

jab him in the ribs or anything, I was just concentrating on the next shot,”

said Leishman. “I was lucky to take my drop on an upslope for the next

shot. I was trying to make it and I did. It was fun doing that. “Cam didn’t

hit a bad shot there. In fact it might sound silly, but he hit a really good

shot and it just got caught on the wind. “ … It’s not often you can celebrate

winning with a friend and fellow player. It’s a special win.”
