    What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Jim Herman at The 2016 Shell Houston Open - Great Golf Blog

    HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Jim Herman delivered a masterful performance at just the right time Sunday in the Shell Houston Open.

    Herman, winless in 105 previous starts on the PGA Tour, chipped in for birdie on the par-3 16th and finished with two solid pars for a 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory that sends him to the Masters for the first time in his career.
    Herman tapped in for par and thrust both fists in the air after his one-shot victory over Henrik Stenson.
    "Sorry for the tears, but I'm pretty happy," Herman said in his TV interview. "We really did a good job keeping our game plan. We wanted to give ourselves as many birdie chances as we could and keep it low stress. And geez, look what happened. Never thought it was possible."

    What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Jason Day at The 2016 Arnold Palmer Invitational - Great Golf Blog

    Jason Day went wire to wire to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational, completing feat that even eluded Tiger Woods during his dominant runs at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.

    But like many of Woods' wins, Day's victory Sunday required some 72nd hole dramatics.

    Day needed to get up and down out of the bunker behind the challenging par-4 final hole to hold off Kevin Chappell, who had bogeyed the hole in the group ahead of Day.

    Day hit the sand shot to four feet and calmly sank the putt to pick up his first win since the BMW Championship last September and the $1.134 million winner's check. He became the first wire-to-wire winner at Bay Hill since Fred Couples in 1992.

    What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Charl Schwartzel at The 2016 Valspar Championship - Great Golf Blog

    South Africa's Charl Schwartzel won the Valspar Championship with a one-stroke play-off victory against overnight leader Bill Haas.

    Schwarzel was four-under heading into the final six holes of the Valspar Championship. He needed to gain four strokes on Bill Haas to force a playoff, and that's exactly what he did.

    Schwarzel birdied three out of the final six holes of the PGA tournament as Haas faltered late and bogeyed the 16th. The two went into the playoff at seven-under par.

    Haas stumbled again and bogeyed the 18th hole in the playoff and Schwartzel parred it to claim victory at the Valspar Championship. It was the 31-year-old's third victory in his last six worldwide events. He finished tied for 17th at the WGC-Cadillac Championship last weekend.

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Adam Scott won the Honda Classic and put to rest any notion that his career would suffer with a short putter.

    In a tight duel with Sergio Garcia for the entire round Sunday at PGA National, Scott stayed out of the water and closed with an even-par 70 for a 1-shot victory. It was his first title since he won Colonial in May 2014, and it was his first time winning with a conventional putter since the 2010 Singapore Open.

    What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Vaughn Taylor at The 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am - Great Golf Blog

    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Vaughn Taylor doesn't know how he lost his game. Even more mystifying was the way it returned.

    His goal Sunday when he teed off in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, trailing Phil Mickelson by six shots, was to finish in the top 10 so he wouldn't have to rush down to Los Angeles and try to qualify for the next PGA Tour event.

    It had been more than a decade since he won. It had been three years since he had a full PGA Tour card. And just 10 days ago, Taylor was throwing up in his hotel room in Bogota, Colombia, so sick that he withdrew from a Tour event and flew to Pebble Beach as an alternate. The one-time Ryder Cup player only had a carry bag with him to save money on baggage fees.

    Taylor ran off four straight birdies on the back nine at Pebble Beach to close with a 7-under 65, and he wasn't sure it was enough when Mickelson stood over a 5-foot birdie putt to force a playoff. And then Taylor got one last surprise.
    Mickelson missed.
    "Just absolutely amazing," Taylor said. "Didn't know if it would ever happen again, to be honest. Just lost a lot of confidence, lost a good bit of my game. I just kept working, grinding and kept at it. And I can't believe it actually happened today."
    Neither could Mickelson.
    Lefty was going for his record-tying fifth victory at Pebble Beach, and the 43rd title of his Hall of Fame career. He had a two-shot lead to start the final round, lost the lead after five holes, rallied with a birdie on the 17th hole and then delivered two good shots to within 60 feet of the hole, just short of the green on the par-5 18th.

    What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Hideki Matsuyama at The 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open - Great Golf Blog

    In a tournament that will be remembered as one that Rickie Fowler lost, Hideki Matsuyama pulls out an unexpected win and earns his second PGA Tour title at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

    Both players had four-under rounds of 67 to finish on 14 under and matched each other with two pars and a birdie on the first three extra holes.

    But Fowler drove into the water on the 17th, as he had also done in his round, allowing Matsuyama to win with a par.
