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



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

Steven Bowditch celebrates his win Sunday at the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Irving, Texas - Steven Bowditch started the week at the AT&T Byron Nelson by

shooting 62 in the opening round, he finished it shooting 64 on Sunday for a four

stroke victory at the Four Seasons Las Colinas. The Dallas area was under flood

conditions all week, but Sunday was a Chamber of Commerce afternoon. Thru five

holes Sunday, Bowditch and Dustin Johnson were tied for the lead, but after a

couple of errant tee shots by Johnson, Bowditch went on a tear - over the last

thirteen holes he was 6 under par, finishing at 18 under par.

Bowditch, a native Aussie who now calls Flower Mound, Texas home is quite

fond of Las Colinas - he was married to his wife Amanda there in September 10, 2011.

Afterward, Bowditch reflected: "It's pretty special place for me and my wife, you know

taking photos on the green today was probably . . . wasn't probably, it's definitely the

second best time I've had on that green since we got married there."


Bowditch set the tournament record at 259, besting Rory Sabbatini who shot 261

in 2009, but the final three rounds this year were played as a par 69 (because of

modifications to the 14th hole due to the excessive rain in the Dallas area).


Charley Hoffman (65), Jimmy Walker (66), Scott Pinkney (66) finished tied for

second at -14. Zach Johnson (63) was fifth at -13. Jordan Spieth finish tied for

30th at -7.










Kirk Wins at Colonial PDF Print E-mail


Chris Kirk with the spoils of victory as champion of the 2015 Crown Plaza Invitational at Colonial


Fort Worth, Texas - Chris Kirk admitted afterward that he didn't have his best stuff on Sunday. He

wasn't bragging, in fact, he was surprised to come out on top of the Crown Plaza Invitational at

Colonial. Although his final round 4 under- 66 (268 -12 under total) seemed impressive, Kirk was

battling his driver and knew there was no way he was hitting the big stick on the eighteenth tee

(even though he needed par to win). He pulled his 3 wood left off the tee, then flew his 9 iron

approach over the green - chipped to 7 feet . . . and buried the putt. Later, reflecting on why he

didn't hit driver on the last, "I just didn't think I was going to hit it anywhere on the planet, to be

honest with you," Kirk said. Kirk's "B Game" was enough to hold off Jordan Spieth, Jason Bohn,

and Brandt Snedeker who all finished a shot behind at 11 under par.


On a day that started out with with a 3 hour weather delay (inch & half of rain) early Sunday

morning, the tour staff made the decision to play lift-clean & place through the green (anywhere

on the golf course).


Kirk continued to express his pleasure with gutting it out: "Kind of surprised that I'm sitting

here with y'all at the moment, Kirk told the golf media afterward. "Everyother time that I've

either won or been in this position, I really felt great about pretty much all aspects of my game.

To be able to do it when I didn't really feel like I, is a huge step for me."


Defending Champion Adam Scott finished T24 at 6 under par.


Kirk's prior wins all included an easy stroll and tap in on the last, at Colonial he took pleaseure

in knowing he needed to hole a clutch putt in the end to get the job done "Something I'll never

forget," he said. The win was Chris Kirk's fourth PGA Tour career title.

Rory McIlroy celebrates his 11th PGA Tour title Sunday at Quail Hollow

Charlotte, North Carolina - Another week of World No.1 domination. Rory McIlroy

shattered Anthony Kim's 2008 Wells Fargo tournament record by five strokes. The

Northern Irishman's 21 under par score included a blistering third round - breaking

his own course record shooting 61. Sunday's final round 69 around Quail Hollow

silenced any hopes by his challengers, who would have needed the 26 year old to

collapse to have any realistic chance at stealing the victory. McIlroy won his 11th

PGA Tour title by a whopping seven strokes.


In his last three starts on the PGA Tour, McIlroy has won the WGC Match Play

at Harding Park, finished T8 at the Players at TPC Sawgrass and now winning at

Quail Hollow (where he won his first ever PGA Tour event).


In the middle of a five week stretch, McIlroy plays at the BMW PGA Championship

(the European Tour's flagship event) this week, and then heads to his native

Northern Ireland for the Irish Open at Royal County Down. He will not play at

Jack Nicklaus' event at Muirfield Village the following week - in preparation for

the U.S Open at Chambers Bay.


"I feel like as the best player in the world, I want to go at it every week and,

not so much prove it but just show that," McIlroy said. The way I played

yesterday really set me up to go out there today, I was in control of the golf

tournament and I just needed to shoot a solid round and that was going to

get me over the line."


Patrick Rodgers and Quail Hollow member Webb Simpson tied for second at
