What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Jason Day at The 2015 PGA Championship - Great Golf Deals.com Blog




SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Heading to the first tee on a bright Sunday at Whistling Straits for the final round of the PGA Championship, Jason Day was hauling a lot of major scar tissue.




He left hauling the hefty Wanamaker Trophy.

In a historical display of power and composure, Day rid himself of major championship demons by holding off Jordan Spieth and an assortment of others to win the last major of the season. Never once becoming unsettled despite the pressure applied by his colleagues, and with the thermometer reaching 90 degrees along Lake Michigan, Day closed with a 5-under-par 67 to finish at 20 under 268 and toppled Spieth by three shots.

Day’s resounding triumph carried historical weight, too. With rounds of 68-67-66-67, he became the first player to finish a major championship at 20 under, breaking the record in relation to par set by Tiger Woods in the 2000 British Open when he finished 19 under.

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Shane Lowrry at The 2015 Bridgestone Invitationall - Great Golf Deals.com Blog



The famed "Gary Player Cup trophy" handed out to the winner of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational is heading back to Ireland for the second straight year. Shane Lowry chased down 54-hole leaders Jim Furyk and Justin Rose early on Sunday at Firestone, and then used a bit of luck and incredible recovery shotmaking to edge Bubba Watson for his first PGA Tour win.




Lowry is an accomplished Euro Tour player and has popped up on the first page of the leaderboard of the game's biggest events on several occasions. He even won the Irish Open as an amateur back in 2009. But he does not play regularly in the States and had never won on the PGA Tour. The World Golf Championships count as both a Euro and PGA Tour event, and they're among the most lucrative and competitive on both circuits. Only two of the top 50 players in the world were not at Firestone this week, one of them being Lowry's good Irish friend and the defending champ, Rory McIlroy. Lowry ended up bettering all of them, and as the leaders stalled out he grabbed control and will now take home a $1.57 million winner's check.

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Jason Day at The 2015 Canadian Open - Great Golf Deals.com Blog




OAKVILLE, Ont. -- Jason Day has won the RBC Canadian Open, overtaking Canada's David Hearn.




Day shot a 4-under 68 Sunday to get to 17 under for the tournament. A birdie on the 18th hole sealed the victory.

Bubba Watson was second at 16 under, while Hearn was third at 15 under.

Day was consistent on the back nine and turned his game up with birdies on 16, 17 and 18. Watson went on a roll to catch up as Hearn faltered.

Hearn holed an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 13, but birdie misses on 14 and 16 ultimately kept him from tying Day. His shot into the bunker on 18 was the end.

ST ANDREWS, Scotland – It was only fitting a playoff would bring to a close the 144th British Open at the Home of Golf.




Torrential rain closed the Old Course on Friday, gale-forced winds stopped play Saturday and amateurs ran amok of the yellow leaderboards during only the second Monday finish in the tournament’s history.

Late on the fifth day of play, Zach Johnson, Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen took to the first hole for a four-hole playoff with the best aggregate score claiming the Claret Jug.

Forty-five minutes later Johnson joined Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Sam Snead, Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo as the only players to win the Masters and a British Open on the Old Course.

Jordan Spieth sent a message to the critics that he had not made a mistake by warming up for the British Open with a tournament in the United States and showed he was ready to challenge for the title by claiming the John Deere Classic in a play-off on Sunday.


Spieth, already the winner of this year’s Masters and US Open, defeated unheralded fellow-American Tom Gillis on the second play-off hole at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois.
The victory was the world number two’s fourth of the season and a return win at the tournament where he claimed his first PGA title in 2013.
