Justin Thomas hoists The PLAYERS trophy after winning at TPC Sawgrass



Ponte Vedra, Florida - Justin Thomas, who started the weekend seven

strokes behind the lead and three behind 54 hole leader Lee Westwood,

had a weekend to remember on Pete Dye's Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass

- firing rounds of 64-68, to capture his first Players title.  Thomas finished

at 14 under par, one ahead of Westwood who birdied the 72 hole to finish

solo second for the second straight week.


The win marks a bit of history for Thomas - he becomes just the fourth

player to win the Players, a WGC event, a major and the Fedex Cup. Only

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson had previously completed

the feat.


"I'm so happy they're back (the fans) and I'm so happy to be a Players

champion. I fought so hard today, I stayed really patient, probably one

of the best rounds of my life tee to green, I had total control of the ball.


Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey, Talor Gooch, and Brian Harman all finished

tied for third at 12 under par.

Bryson Wins AP Invitational at Bayhill PDF Print E-mail

 

Bryson DeChambeau celebrates wearing the red cardigan




Windermere, Florida - He's known for his game changing distance off

the tee these days, but for Bryson DeChambeau, quite often it's been

his shortgame and putter that have made the difference. On Sunday

at Bayhill the Clovis, California native drained two lengthy bombs -

a 40 footer on the outward side and another early on the back nine on

his way to a final round 71 (11 under par - 277 total) and a one-shot

victory over Lee Westwood (73) at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.


High winds in Florida over the weekend made for difficult conditions,

in fact, the field average of 73.49 was the highest at Bayhill in 41 years.

DeChambeau's final round 71 was one of only three in the entire field

that finished in red numbers on Sunday. It was an epic duel, where

no more than a shot separated Westwood and DeChambeau all day long.

When the Englishman holed his 9 foot par putt at the last, it forced Bryson

to hole his 5 footer to avoid a playoff. He poured it in the center and raised

his arms in a triumphant celebration.


DeChambeau cited a text from Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer's slogan to

"Play Boldly" as inspiration for the day.

 

DeChambeau's 9th PGA Tour victory puts him atop the Fedex Cup standings

and elevates him to no.6 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

 

Canadian Corey Connors finished third after a final round 74.

Morikawa Wins WGC at Concession PDF Print E-mail

 

Collin Morikawa celebrates after winning at the Concession Club

 


BRADENTON, Fla. - Collin Morikawa showed poise and a steady

temperament in his final round 3-under 69 for a 3-shot victory (18

under par 270 total) at the WGC Workday Championship in Bradenton.

Morikawa won by 3 over Billy Horschel, Brooks Koepka (who both

shot 70 on Sunday), and Viktor Hovland who fired a final round 67.

 

The Concession, a collaboration of Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin is

often referred by its members as "the Concussion" for its toughness

and resistance to scoring, especially around the greens. In truth, the

layout was well received by the players and made for some very

interesting viewing over the weekend.


Morikawa gleaned some shortgame knowledge from longtime Concession

member Paul Azinger on chipping and from two-time major winner Mark

O'Meara on a new putting grip (a few weeks back in Las Vegas) that helped

around the tight Bermuda grass lies and greens at Concession. Morikawa

became the 24th player to win a major Championship and a World Golf

Championship, joining Woods as the only players to accomplish the feat

before the age of 25.


In his winning post game interview, the Southern California native and

former Cal Bear standout, expressed his gratitude for his grandfather

(who passed away a month earlier) and childhood golf idol-Tiger Woods

(who is recovering from a near fatal collision in Los Angeles), "We don't

say `Thank you' enough," Morikawa said.

Homa Wins Playoff Over Finau at Riviera PDF Print E-mail

 

Max Homa celebrates after winning in his hometown at Riviera.

 

 

 

Pacific Palisades - Max Homa missed a 3ft 4 inch putt on the home

hole in front of his idol (and tournament host) Tiger Woods that

would have sealed the win at storied Riviera, instead he needed

two sudden-death playoff holes to dispatch Tony Finau for the

Genesis Championship title.


Finau, seeking his first win since 2016, had his own chance to clinch

the victory with a 6 ft birdie putt on George Thomas' masterpiece,

the drivable tenth. Both players finished regulation at 12 under par -

Finau fired a final round 64, while Homa shot a bogey free 66.


Sam Burns began Sunday’s final round at with a two-shot lead, looking

to notch his first PGA Tour win. He came out hot - making birdie on two

of his first three holes out of the gate, then two more at the seventh and

ninth producing an opening nine 31. In command, Burns faltered on the

inward side, making bogeys at the 12th, 14th and 15th to fall out of the

lead. The 24 year-old former former LSU Tiger standout finished a shot

short of the playoff with a final round 69 - solo third.

 

"I don't know if I could ever do anything cooler in golf than this," said

Homa, who closed with a 5-under 66 and played his final 26 holes at

Riviera without a bogey. "Tiger Woods is handing us a trophy, that's a

pretty crazy thought. We grew up idolizing him, idolizing Riviera Country

Club, idolizing the golf tournament. To get it done, it's almost shocking.

It feels like it just can't be topped for me."

 

World No.1 Dustin Johnson finished tied for 8th (-6 total) after a final

round 72.
