Brendan Todd wins the Mayakoba Golf Classic

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico - Brendon Todd won for the second time in as many

starts when he captured the rain-delayed Mayakoba Golf Classic on Monday

after a final round 3 under par 68 (Todd also won the Bermuda Championship

earlier this month in his last start).


Tied with Vaughn Taylor entering the extended week - they were among 12

players required to return to complete tournament after heavy rains at El

Camaleon pushed the event to a Monday finish. Todd made birdie on his first

hole of the day - the 15th, and was hoping to extend his lead when he missed

a short putt at the next. With only two holes remaining, he parred both of the

last two holes to finish at 20 under par. Vaughn Taylor's bid to tie at the last

came up just shy of the cup, clinching the victory for Brendan Todd.

stretch even though there are holes you think you should birdie. There are

dangers waiting around every corner."

Tiger Ties Snead - Gets Win No.82 at Zozo Championship PDF Print E-mail



Tiger Woods celebrates after winning the Zozo Championship in Tokyo.

Tokyo, Japan - Tiger Woods captured his record tying 82nd PGA Tour win at the Zozo Championship to match Sam Sead's mark. Woods finished the rain-soaked event on after a final round 69 to finish at 19 under par, beating Japan's Hideki Matsuyama by 3 shots at Narashino Country Club.

Woods who had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee nearly 8 weeks ago,
now seems like a lock to pick himself to be a playing captain at the upcoming Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne in Australia.


The victory was Tiger's third in his last fourteen starts. Rory McIlroy finished tied for third at 13 under par. Unlike Woods who had 7 holes left to finish on Monday, McIlroy had only 2 holes left to complete. “Physically, I can’t do any of the things I used to be able to do, but I can think my way around the course,” Woods said after his win. There was a point when I didn’t know ifI’d be play again,” he added of his physical issues in recent years, most notably involving his back. “I was just hoping to walk normally again.”


Tiger's next triumph, No.83 will set him apart as the all-time wins leader - a mark unlikely to be seen again. Right now, two questions remain, wherewill the record setting victory occur, and is Jack's 18 majors back in play?

12 footer for par lipped out, reducing the deficit to two strokes.

to finish with a 69. Thomas finished with a 72-hole total of 20-under 268 at

Nine Bridge, Lee was two strokes back at 18 under par.


"It was a very, very tough day," Thomas said. "Danny made it extremely difficult.

He really made a lot of putts, a lot of unbelievable up and downs to kind of keep

me from getting all of the momentum."
