Bubba Takes Travelers, Maggert Wins Senior Open PDF Print E-mail

 

Bubba Watson won the Travelers Championship for the second time Sunday.



Cromwell, Connecticut - Bubba Watson shot 67 on Sunday, and went on to win his second

Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. This edition came down to a playoff with Paul

Casey, who fired a final round 65 to reach extra holes.


Casey who closed strong at the end of regulation with three birdies in his last five holes (tying

Watson at 16 under par), was attempting to get up and down from a greenside bunker at the

par 4 - 18th (second playoff hole) when his shot flew the green and landed on the cart path.

Watson already safely on the green in close range after a solid approach from 160 yards out,

calmly rolled in his 8 footer for birdie to seal the deal, for his second victory of the season (he

won the HSBC Champions in China earlier in the season).

Spieth Wins U.S Open - Halfway to 2015 Slam PDF Print E-mail


By Jason Bruno


Jordan Spieth celebrates after winning the U.S Open at Chambers Bay




University Place, Washington - 21 year old Jordan Spieth continues to amaze. On Sunday, the

World No.2 continued his roll by winning the U.S Open at Chambers Bay just outside of Seattle.

There were many marquee names on the leaderboard coming down the stretch, Adam Scott who

finished early (fired a final round 64), and finished at -3. Rory McIlroy who also posted early, had

a torrid start but fizzled late, finishing at even par after a solid 66. Jason Day who battled

symptoms of vertigo all week just couldn't mount a charge on Sunday. Brendan Grace who was

tied with Spieth before hitting his tee shot out of bounds on the sixteenth and Louie Oosthuizen

who was the best player for the last 54 holes of the event (finished second at -4), but it was

Dustin Johnson who would bring the drama.


In the end it was Spieth (69) and Johnson (70) who thrilled us all. When the Texan drained an

unlikely sidewinder on hole 16 to reach -6, it seemed all but over, but just moments later he

blocked his tee shot right on the par 3 -17th making double bogey and dropping back to -4.

Johnson missed his short birdie putt on the sixteenth, but hit an incredible tee shot on seventeen

and drained the putt to tie Spieth at -4.


Spieth hit two clutch shots to reach the eighteenth in two and two putted for his birdie, finishing

at -5. With the stage set DJ bombed his drive, and left himself a just an iron in, he hit perhaps the

shot of his career to just inside 12 feet left to win the U.S Open. The eagle attempt for the win slid

by some three feet and it seemed a Monday playoff was inevitable . . . but the short attempt to tie

never had a chance to go in, sliding by the edge of the cup. Spieth -5, Johnson -4 . . . Game Over.

It was great theatre on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the Pacific Northwest on a controversial

track that somehow still produced the games best rising to the top on Sunday.

 

Dustin Johnson seemed to put the devastating three putt into perspective: “I’m disappointed,

but also I’m disappointed that I three-putted the last hole, other than that, I had a damn good

week. I’m happy with the way I played. I’m happy with everything in my game right now. I had

a chance to win a major again on a Sunday. I thought I handled myself very well.”


As usual Spieth was humble in victory, “I'm still amazed that I won, let alone that we weren't

playing tomorrow. So for that turnaround right there [and] to watch that happen, I feel for

Dustin. But I haven't been able to put anything in perspective yet.”


Jordan Spieth is now half way to the Grand Slam in 2015 and for his career, with the next

major at St.Andrews, who will doubt his chances?

Dublin, Ohio - Justin Rose started the Memorial Sunday with a three stroke lead, and

former five time Champion at Muirfield Village - Tiger Woods played solo as the first

player out Sunday morning. As a result of Tiger's third round 85 (a career worst), he

was a rare dawn patrol golfer on a Sunday. He rebounded early on Sunday, but made

two double bogeys coming in to finish at 74 for the day and 71st for the week (last

place).

 

In the end it was a classic duel between Rose and David Lingmerth, three playoff

holes later it was Lingmerth who captured his first PGA Tour victory. "I've been in a

few playoffs." Lingmerth said. "You win some, you lose some . . . but I didn't feel it

was my turn to lose this time." The two finished regulation at 15 under par, Lingmerth

fired a final round 69, while Rose shot even par 72.

 

Lingmerth who moved up to 28th in the Fedex Cup standings, is scheduled to play

in a 36 hole qualifier on Monday for the U.S Open.

 

Masters Champion Jordan Spieth shot 65 on Sunday and finished two shots back,

he declared after his round that he's ready for Chambers Bay, "I'm hitting the ball

better and better each week, everything is kind of coming in place for the U.S Open."

 

Francesco Molinari was also tied for third at 13 under par after a 71 Sunday.
