Morikawa Rallies, Outduels Justin Thomas at Workday PDF Print E-mail

 

Collin Morikawa wins the Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village

 

 

 

DUBLIN, Ohio — Collin Morikawa down by three strokes to Justin

Thomas with three holes to go seemed destined to come up short,

but the former Cal Golden Bear standout rallied to send the Workday

Charity Open to extra holes at the house that Jack built.

 

Morikawa fired a six under par 66 in regulation Sunday, but it was

the first hole of the sudden-death playoff that made this one an instant

classic. Thomas holed a 50-foot bomb from the back of the (18th) green

for birdie on the first extra hole (for what appeared to be the likely winning

putt), so with a must make 25-footer just to stay alive, Morikawa delivered.

Thomas had a 10-footer to win on the 18th on the second playoff hole

that just slid by, so they went to a third playoff hole (the tenth). It finally

ended when Thomas pitched out after an errant drive behind a tree and

failed to convert his par. Morikawa made a routine two-putt par for his

second career victory.

 

Thomas who shot a final round 69 (19-under 269 total), led by three

after the 15th hole but his bogey on the 72nd hole opened the door for

the playoff. For Morikawa, who missed the cut in his previous start, this

was validation that he just needed to reboot. It was his debut at Muirfield

Village, where the tour remains for the Memorial this week.

 

It was the second playoff since the PGA Tour resumed and Morikawa

was involved in both of them (he lost at Colonial to Daniel Berger).

Bryson DeChambeau celebrates after winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic




Detroit, Michigan - Bryson DeChambeau has transformed his body and

his approach to the game, adding 40 pounds of muscle mass, becoming

a bomber off the tee and playing the odds that being longer increases

the percentages, even calling himself "The House" - as in casino terms.

Clearly it's paying off, his string of consistent top tens culminated Sunday

into his first win of 2020 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic after a blistering

final round 65 to finish at 23 under par.


Routinely driving it 350 yards, he's out pacing his playing partners by

50-60 yards on average. In Detroit, he became the first player in 16

years to lead a tournament in distance, shots gained off the tee and

putting. The 3 stroke victory marked his sixth career PGA Tour title.


Bryson birdied four of the final seven holes and the last three to pull

away from Matthew Wolff, who finished second after a final rd 71.


This is a little emotional for me because I did do something a little

different," DeChambeau said. "I changed my body, changed my

mindset in the game and I was able to accomplish a win while

playing a completely different style of golf and it's pretty amazing

to see that. I hope it's an inspiration to a lot of people.


Kevin Kisner finished solo third at -18 after a final round 66.

PGA Tour: Dustin Johnson's greatness vastly underappreciated

Dustin Johnson celebrates after winning the Travelers Championship




Cromwell, Conn - Dustin Johnson hung on to win the Travelers

Championship at TPC River Highlands on Sunday to end a 15 month

drought and extend his consecutive season victory streak to 13.

Johnson closed with a 3-under 67 for a total of 19 under par and a

one-stroke victory over Kevin Streelman (67 on Sunday). Johnson's

last victory came in Mexico City in March 2019.


Nicklaus and Palmer each won in 17 consecutive years, while Woods

won in 14 consecutive years. Johnson didn't win in 2014 (but did win

in the 2013-14 wrap-around fall season in Shanghai. It was the first

season that the PGA Tour played a wrap-around format. DJ admitted

afterwards that he felt the pressure coming down the stretch, "I didn't

have my best stuff today, but I'm proud I was able to get the job done."


Johnson's 351 yard bomb down the middle at the last was an emphatic

statement for the newly turned 36 year old (June 22nd). He wedged to

12 feet and two-putted for the victory, his 21st career PGA Tour title,

matching Davis Love III. Johnson moved up to 3rd in the Official World

Golf Ranking.


Mackenzie Hughes and Will Gordon finished tied for 3rd at -17. Gordon,

who had no playing status, fired a final round 64. He earned a special

temporary tour card and unlimited exemptions for the rest of the season.

Webb Simpson Wins RBC Heritage PDF Print E-mail

 

 

Webb wears the Tartan Jacket after winning at Harbour Town



Hilton Head Island, S.C - Webb Simpson outlasted a red-hot field of the

games' finest to claim the 2020 RBC Heritage. Simpson fired a final round

64 on Father's Day to set a new tournament record at 22 under par (the

previous record was held by Brian Gay in 2009 at 20 under par).

 

Harbour Town Golf Links played without its customary thick rye overseed,

which gave players a greater chance to reach greens when missing fairways.

The lack of thick rough also meant that any shot off the tee that was off-line

ran further into the trees than in previous years.

 

Abe Ancer who only missed seven greens all week (and hit all 18 in regulation

on Sunday), finished one stroke back for solo second. Last week's winner at

Colonial - Daniel Berger, continued his fine form finishing in a tie for third with

Tyrell Hatton at 20 under par. Simpson who captured his seventh career PGA

Tour win has now moved into the lead in the Fedex Cup Standings.

 

World no.1 Rory McIlroy finished eleven shots back at -11.
