Lydia Ko celebrates after winning the Evian Championship

France -  Lydia Ko fired a final round 63 to win the Evian Championship and become

the youngest LPGA player to ever win a major championship at 18 years 4 months and

20 days old (eclipsing Morgan Pressel who was 18 years 10 months and 9 days old when

she won the Kraft Nabisco in 2007).


The New Zealander's 16 under par total was good for a six stroke victory over American

Lexi Thompson. Ko's bogey free final round included five birdies on the back nine (on

holes 11, 12, 15, 17, and 18). Afterward, Ko was overwhelmed with pride over the



"Just to shoot 8-under on any day is a pretty solid round.... but on the final day of a Grand

Slam event, playing like that is a dream come true…Winning a major at any age is amazing.

Being the youngest is cool! I can still hardly believe I can leave my name a little bit in the

history books."

Ricky Fowler celebrates at TPC Boston after winning the Deutsche Bank Championship

Norton, Mass - It was a mano a mano duel between of the games best. Henrik Stenson and

Rickie Fowler waged what felt like a Ryder Cup singles match with the rowdy beantown

faithful providing their usual brand of volume to the proceedings.


After a great 38 foot putt on the fourteenth, Fowler reached -15 and trailed Stenson by one

until to they reached the shortest hole at TPC Boston - the par 3 sixteenth. Stenson's 7 iron

tee shot came up short in the water hazard, Fowler hit his tee shot into a tough lie just

right of the green. Fowler executed an impressive and risky flop out of the thick rough to a

few feet to save his par. The two shot swing gave Fowler the lead at -15, and he nearly

slammed the door on the par 4 seventeenth, but just missed his 8 foot birdie attempt.


On the final hole both players hit good drives, but Stenson choose 3 wood and still had 230 yards

on his approach. Fowler piped his driver and had 189 yards left. Both players approaches rolled

through the firm green and into the collection area. Stenson and Fowler hit solid third shots, the

Swede opting to pitch his, while Fowler went with the "Texas Wedge". Neither were able to get

their shots close. When Stenson missed his birdie attempt, all Fowler had to do was two putt from

12 feet (which he did). The loss was a tough one for Stenson who had just finished second at the

Barclays the week prior. The win for Fowler was his third world wide win of the season and vaults

him to fifth in the Official World Golf Rankings, and third in the Fedex Cup standings heading into




"This is bonus material, here," Fowler said. "We came into the season obviously wanting to play

well in the majors and to win a major; wasn't able to do that. But we wanted to win, and win more

than once. So we've done that. "And now it's about getting myself in a great position for Atlanta

and to see if we can get some more wins this season. I don't want to stop. I like coming and hanging

out here late on the final day. It's good with me."









Jason Day Romps at Barclays - Leads Fedex Cup PDF Print E-mail


Jason Day celebrates his six stroke victory at the Fedex Cup

Edison, New Jersey - Jason Day continued his run through the best players on the PGA Tour,

shooting 62 Sunday to capture the first of the Fedex Cup playoffs at Plainfield Country Club.

The six stroke victory was Day's fourth win of the season (Farmer's Insurance Open, Canadian

Open and PGA Championship) and has vaulted him atop the Fedex Cup standings heading into

Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship.


Although it seemed like a walk in the park, the Aussie admitted it's far from it: “It's not easy,

I can tell you that,” Day admitted. “Even though it may look easy, it's not easy. I'm still nervous.

I still had thoughts on the front nine, Am I going to win it? But over the years it's starting to

become a lot easier.”

Day who putted lights out at Plainfield has been working on his lag putting with his coach and

caddie Colin Swatton. “We changed the way he was doing his lag putting,” said Colin Swatton.

“We’ve always worked on lag putting, but we upped the ante a little bit and started putting into

the hole from 25 or 30 feet instead of just putting to a mark, that way you get more focused on

making the putt instead of just getting it close.”

Henrik Stenson finished solo second and Bubba Watson finished third eight strokes back.


Lefty Brian Harman had the rare feat of two hole-n-ones during his final round 68 on Sunday.

He aced the 183 yard - third hole with a 7 iron and the 218 yard fourteenth with a 4 hybrid.

Greensboro, North Carolina - In the final regular season event before the

Fedex Cup Playoffs, Davis Love lll shocked the golf world and shot a final

round 64 to win the Wyndham Championship by one stroke over 54 hole

leader Jason Gore.

Sedgefield the 1926 Donald Ross' gem, has long been a favorite of Davis

Love lll . . . his highlights were two eagles, one at the fifth and another at

the fifteenth that gave him the outright lead at -17. Love posted 17 under

par, and waited as challenger after challenger failed to match him. When

Gore's birdie attempt at the last slid by, Davis Love lll became the third

oldest winner in PGA Tour history at 51 years 4 months old.

his 21st PGA Tour victory, and opens the doors for a return to his favorite

event - the Masters.
