What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Satoshi Kodaira at The 2018 RBC Heritage - Great Golf Deals.com Blog





HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Early on, Satoshi Kodaira was thinking only of playing well enough Sunday to make it to next week’s PGA Tour stop.

Those worries are over for the 28-year-old from Japan, who rallied from six shots behind to win the RBC Heritage in a playoff and gain an invitation to join the tour as a regular.

“This is a stage I’ve been dreaming about,” Kodaira said through an interpreter. “And having this opportunity to play full time is a dream come true. So, of course, I will accept full-time membership.”

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Patrick Reed at The 2018 Masters - Great Golf Deals.com Blog




AUGUSTA, Ga. — Sunday at the Masters began with Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy in a final-round pairing that resurrected memories of the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club, where Reed got the best of McIlroy in a riveting singles match.

It ended with Reed rebuffing the challenges of two teammates from that victorious United States team, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, to win at Augusta National. It was Reed’s first victory in a major event, and it happened a short drive from where he led Augusta State to back-to-back N.C.A.A. Division I titles.

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Ian Poulter at The 2018 Houston Open - Great Golf Deals.com Blog



From despair, to resignation, to joy, to Augusta.


Last week Ian Poulter thought he'd made the Masters, then the math boffins told him otherwise.
Then the Englishman looked to have blown his last chance to qualify for the year's first major with an opening 73 at this week's Houston Open.


The winner in Texas would secure the final spot at Augusta, but Poulter was sure his dream was over and packed his bags.


But three rounds and 21 birdies later, Poulter pounded his heart with joy as he sank a 19-foot birdie putt to force a playoff in Houston.


And he grabbed his chance at the first extra hole to beat American Beau Hossler for his first strokeplay win on US soil.

But, after one of the most important wins of his career, once again the story is Rory. His triumph arrived with impeccable timing because next month's Masters is just around the corner.

By turning around his indifferent putting form to find a midas touch on the greens, McIlroy discovered golfing gold in a final-round 64 to snatch the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Paul Casey at The 2018 Valspar Championship - Great Golf Deals.com Blog



PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) - Right when Paul Casey felt he was a winner in the Valspar Championship, he looked up at the TV and saw a scene that was all too familiar.

Tiger Woods, red shirt blazing on Sunday, holed a 45-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole at Innisbrook that pulled him to within one shot of the Casey's lead. Moments later, Woods settled over a birdie putt from just inside 40 feet that would have forced a playoff.

"I loved his putt on 17. That was amazing," Casey said. "I thought he was going to hole the one on 18."

Not this time.

Not yet.

A long victory drought on the PGA Tour ended Sunday, just not the one most people - Casey included - were expecting.
