Patrick Reed celebrates after his five stroke victory at Torrey Pines South


 

 

La Jolla, California - Patrick Reed shot a final round 68 Sunday to overcome

another rules controversy and win the Farmers Insurance Open by five

strokes at Torrey Pines.


Reed and Carlos Ortiz shared a two-stroke lead over Jon Rahm

and Viktor Hovland thru 54 holes.


Ortiz bogeyed the first and never recovered - stumbling to 6-over-par

78, falling into a tie for 29th at 4-under-par. Hovland briefly made a

run, tying the lead after birdies on the seventh and ninth, but Reed

took command when he drained a 45ft eagle putt on the par-5 sixth

(the same hole where he sank a 40 ft bomb for eagle in rd 3 Saturday).

Reed ran a string of 8 straight pars on the back nine before finishing

off the field with an exclamation point birdie at the last to finish at 14

under par total of 274.


Reed's victory was overshadowed by the embedded ball controversy

that took place during Saturday's third round. The PGA Tour rules

officials declared on Sunday that Reed followed the proper procedure,

but many tour players past and present felt that Reed manipulated

the rules by picking up and moving his ball away from the it's original

location prior to the rules official arriving on the scene. Perhaps the

biggest part of the drama that infuriated so many, was the fact that

the ball bounced prior to supposedly becoming embedded - and lack

of transparency while he removed the ball from the ground were issues

cited by many that felt Reed's reputation from past violations removes

any benefit of the doubt that many other PGA tour players would seem

to receive in similar circumstances.


Reed declined to speak about the matter after the win, staying positive.

“I knew coming into today was going to be a grind, especially with that

leaderboard and seeing how many big names were right around there

at the top." Hovland, Finau, Schauffelle, Norlander and Palmer finished

tied for second at 9 under par.

Tyrrell Hatton celebrates after winning the HSBC Championship




Abu Dhabi - Tyrrell Hatton notched his sixth European Tour title in

winning the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on Sunday. Hatton

began the day a stroke behind 54 hole-leader Rory McIlroy, which

set the stage for an eventful final round clash. Hatton started fast,

making three birdies on the outward nine to gain momentum over

the Ulsterman.


The back nine failed to deliver the highly anticipated drama, as

McIlroy faltered bogeying the 16th, Hatton surged - making 3

more birdies on the inward side to seize command of the HSBC

Championship.


The Englishman carded a bogey-free six-under-par 66 for a total

score of 18 under par, four-shots ahead of the Aussie Jason Scrivener,

who finished solo second, while McIlroy finished a further stroke back

with his final-round 72.

Kevin Na Rallies to Win Sony PDF Print E-mail

 

Kevin Na celebrates after winning at Waialae




Honolulu, Hawaii - Kevin Na rallied from three shots behind with six

holes to play, making birdie on three straight holes (finishing with an

up and down birdie at the last) to finish with a 5 under par 65 and a

one-shot victory over Chris Kirk and Joaquin Niemann at the Sony Open.


Na who has a history of recent withdrawls at the Sony Open for a

myriad of reasons, was almost a scratch from the first round again.

"On Wednesday morning, warming up in the pro-am, I hit one hard

and I pulled my rib, and I didn't know what to expect. I was like

here we go again,” Na revealed. “My trainer that I just added to the

team, Cornel Driessen, he helped me out a lot. We worked on it,

loosened it, and the next day I woke up, it felt great and felt like

nothing happened. Had he not been here, I don't know, it might

have been a different story." Na then looked ahead to the rest of

the season, "The goals now are to be top-20 in the world before the

year is over, contend in a major and obviously make it to the Tour

Championship and the Ryder Cup."


The victory was Na's fifth career PGA Tour victory, and punches his

ticket back to Hawaii for the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Harris English Wins Sentry in Playoff PDF Print E-mail

 

Harris English was victorious at the Sentry Tournament of Champions

 

 



Kapalua, Hawaii - Harris English ran off four birdies in a five hole

stretch on Sunday, but had his chance at the end of regulation to

seal the deal at the Plantation course at Kapalua - missing a 10-foot

eagle putt on the 72nd hole to force a playoff with Joaquin Niemann

(both finished at 25 under par). Moments later, he did seal the deal

at the Sentry Tournament of Champions on the 18th with a 6 foot

birdie putt.


Niemann, who fired a final round 64 in regulation, failed to match

English in the playoff after an errant approach into the 18th got

caught up in the thick native grass left of the green.


English gained entry into the event (normally reserved only for winners

of the prior season) because the field was expanded to include all players

who reached the previous Tour Championship due to the abbreviated

season of 2020 (due to COVID-19).


The victory was the third of Harris English's career on the PGA Tour

and his first since 2013 at the Mayakoba Classic.


Justin Thomas capped off a week filled with success and controversy,

his Sunday 66 left him one shot out of the playoff. His Anti-gay slur

after a missed putt was heard on the telecast causing him some self-

imposed embarrassment. "I really screwed up and made a terrible

judgement call, it definitely was a distraction out there today, but I

now I get time to become a better person for it."
