What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Adam Hadwin at The 2017 Valspar Championship - Great Golf Deals.com Blog





Canadian Adam Hadwin survived a late wobble to claim his first PGA Tour title at the Valspar Championship in Florida.

The 29-year-old, who rose to prominence when he shot a round of 59 at the CareerBuilder Challenge in January, appeared to be cruising to victory until he drove into water at the 16th.

That led to a double bogey and saw him caught by playing partner Patrick Cantlay.

However, Hadwin regrouped to par the 17th and 18th, with Cantlay dropping a shot at the last after finding a bunker with his approach to hand Hadwin the win.

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Dustin Johnson at The 2017 WGC Mexico Championship - Great Golf Deals.com Blog


The only elevation that mattered at the Mexico Championship is how much higher Dustin Johnson can go.

In his first start since a five-shot victory at Riviera that made him No. 1 in the world, Johnson captured his fourth World Golf Championships title Sunday in Mexico City by blowing past some of golf’s biggest names and then delivering his best shot at the end to secure a one-shot victory over Tommy Fleetwood of England.





Johnson now has won five PGA Tour victories in his last 15 starts dating to the U.S. Open last summer at Oakmont. His other victories were two World Golf Championships, a FedEx Cup playoff event and the Genesis Open at Riviera, which had the strongest field of regular PGA Tour events.

He closed with a 3-under 68 on Sunday, his 12th consecutive round under par.

Dating to the start of 2016, he has finished among the top 10 in 20 out of 29 tournaments worldwide.

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Rickie Fowler at The 2017 Honda Classic - Great Golf Deals.com Blog



Rickie Fowler flirted with a late disaster before clinching a four-stroke victory at the $6.4 million Honda Classic in Florida on Sunday.




Fowler, previously 0-for-4 after starting the final round leading on the PGA Tour, frittered away almost all of his four-stroke advantage on a breezy day at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.


But he steadied a leaky ship by sinking consecutive long birdie putts, a 40-footer at the 12th hole followed by a 25-footer at the next, and extended his lead to five strokes with two holes left.
