Justin Rose celebrates his victory at the Zurich Classic on Sunday



New Orleans, Louisiana - In a week that was plagued by wet conditions, and

numerous weather delays, the PGA Tour played the better part of two rounds

on Sunday at TPC Louisiana. Englishman Justin Rose, coming off of his best

start of the season (a tie for second at the Masters two weeks ago), made

birdie on the final two holes coming in - shooting 65-66 on Sunday to win his

seventh PGA Tour title.

 

In fact, Rose is a whopping 60 under par at TPC Louisiana since 2012. With big

events on the schedule coming up - Match Play, The Players, Memorial and the

U.S Open, Rose is hitting his stride.

 

Rose finished at 22 under par, one shot ahead of Cameron Tringale, who had a

long eagle putt on the closing hole to tie, coming up just short. Tringale shot a

final round 65 on Sunday.

 

Afterward, Rose was beaming with confidence: "This is a great shot in the arm

of confidence and I just got to keep it going. It obviously gets me up there in

everything I want to be up there in - A boost in the World Ranking, a boost in

the Fedex Cup, a huge boost of confidence. Now I can target the major

championships all the way through the summer without having to chase anything

in between. It's going to be great."

 

With the victory, Justin Rose jumps to sixth in the Official World Golf Ranking and

fifteenth in the Fedex Cup standings

Furyk Wins RBC Heritage at Harbour Town PDF Print E-mail

 

Jim Furyk celebrates his first win in nearly five years on Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links.



Hilton Head, South Carolina - The long drought for Jim Furyk is over. Having gone

winless for nearly the last 5 years, the Pittsburgh native blistered Harbour Town

Golf Links for a final round 63. After posting -18, he waited as South Carolina's own

Kevin Kisner shot 64, creating a playoff between the two.


The playoff lasted two holes, both made birdie on the par-4 eighteenth with clutch

putts. On the second playoff hole (the seventeenth) it was Furyk who drained a big

12 footer, and immediately erupted into an emotional celebration. It seemed very

unlike the usually stoic veteran. to show such jubilation.It's been a little over four

and a half (years), to be exact, "Furyk said. "And I that dropping that putt and getting

excited on 17, there was a lot of pent up frustration.

 

I can't think of a more fitting place to kind of break that streak and get another win

under my belt. This is my favorite event. I love being here . . . and outside of winning

another major championship (to add to his 2003 U.S Open), this is the perfect place to

do it."

Jordan Spieth Rules the 79th Masters PDF Print E-mail

 

Bubba Watson puts the Green Jacket on new Masters Champion Jordan Spieth



Augusta, Georgia - When you're hot, you're hot . . . and Jordan Spieth is a 21 year

old inferno that's on top of the golfing world after going wire to wire at the 79th

Masters.

 

Spieth fired rounds of 64-66-70-70 to tie the all time record at Augusta National of

18 under par. Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson posed the only serious challenge on

Sunday shooting 70 and 69 respectively, finishing tied for second at -14. Spieth

never really seemed to be seriously threatened at any point during the final round.

Six Birdies (at the first, third, eighth, tenth, thirteenth and fifteenth holes) offset

bogeys at the fifth, seventh, twelfth and eighteenth.

 

It's been quite a tear for the Texan, who won the Australian Open and Hero World

Challenge last winter, and now two wins and two runner up finishes in his last four

events has put World No.1 Rory McIlroy on notice.

 

Spieth's win was the first wire to wire performance at Augusta National since Ray

Floyd in 1976. Although the final round lacked the drama that most hoped for, the

young American breathed new life into golf fans everywhere . . . especially those still

clinging to the fading days of the Tiger/Phil era.

 

"It was very nerve wracking today," Spieth said. "I thought today might be a little easier

than yesterday, having played around with the lead, but it wasn't. I didn't sleep well last

night. I just got out here, and got a little rhythm, saw a putt going the first hole . . . and

we were off with two major champions right behind, I couldn't let up."

 

It's the most incredible week of my life," Spieth said. "This is as great as it gets in our sport.

This is a dream come true for me. I didn't break 70 last year, even having a chance to win,

where I got edged out by Bubba here . . . but to shoot some low rounds and to see some

putts go in out here and to hear the roars, it was remarkable."

 

 

Masters Records that were set by Spieth this week:

- Most birdies (28)

- Lowest 36 hole score (-14)

- Lowest 54 hole score (-16)

- Tied for Lowest Tournament Score (-18)

Who will win the 79th Masters? PDF Print E-mail

 

By Jason Bruno

 

The 79th playing of the Masters has many notable storylines:


Rory McIlroy goes for the career Grand Slam and his fifth major championship.

Bubba Watson attempts to win his third Jacket in the last four years.

Tiger Woods returns after a long absence from competition - can he contend?

Jordan Spieth nearly won the Masters last year, what lessons did he learn?

Phil Mickelson can tie Woods with 4 titles, is that enough motivation to bring out his best?

Adam Scott goes back to the anchored broomstick this week, can he do it again?

 

With the exception of Woods, who's making another return from injury and swing/

shortgame issues, the other five are legit contenders. Who else in the field has a legit

chance to wear green on Sunday evening?

 

Is there any Masters magic left for Phil & Tiger?

 

 

 

There are six others that are primed to grab their first Green Jacket come Sunday:

 

Jimmy Walker might be playing the best golf of anyone on the planet right now, and

Augusta National sets up perfect for his high right to left ball flight.

 

Dustin Johnson for the same reasons as Walker is on the radar of many this week.

The question for DJ is on the greens (he's perhaps the most talented ball striker in the

field).

 

Rickie Fowler got a sniff in all four majors of 2014, but with a slow start this season

he's being overlooked - it's a bit of a gut call, but he has the goods to contend.

 

Henrik Stenson ranked #2 in the world, has done it all except win a major. The

Swede's game mimics that of Dustin Johnson - it's all about the flatstick for him.

 

 

Jason Day has been so close the last few years in majors, especially at Augusta

National. He's put in copious amounts of shortgame prep this year leading up to

this years Masters. I was able to spend sometime inside the ropes observing close

up at Bay Hill, he has all the shots and looks poised to break through. Only he

can get in his own way of one day winning his favorite event. The 27 year old

Aussie is our pick to win the 2015 Masters and bring another Green Jacket to the

people of Oz.

 

 

Under the Radar:


Brooks Koepka - Long hitting 24 year old playing in his first Masters.


Brandt Snedeker - Is his flatstick enough to compete with the bombers on what

likely will be a long wet track this week?


Keegan Bradley - He has the length, does he have the touch?


Sergio Garcia - Has all the physical skills, but does he believe?

 

Justin Rose - Tough start to 2015, but he's too good to not be a serious threat.
