So much for Chambers Bay being the star of this U.S. Open. Thursday turned into another horror show for Tiger Woods.
Phil Mickelson started the first round of the U.S. Open looking like the 2013 British Open champ he was.
Jimmy Walker rides the wind to victory at Valero. PGA Tour stays in Texas for Shell Houston Open in lead-up to The Masters.
Leading off for the Americans will be two-time Masters champ Bubba Watson and his buddy, 2012 U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson.
Now that the majors are over, Adam Scott is going after the only big prize left this year — a shot at the $10 million FedEx Cup title.
Tiger Woods was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time on the strength of his five big wins and return to No. 1 in the world.
With the win, the 37-year-old Swede clinched the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. Stenson also earned $1.44 million for winning the tournament.
Stenson made four bogeys in the rain on the back nine at East Lake and shot a 1-under 69 for a four-shot lead over Dustin Johnson.
Henrik Stenson looked like he couldn’t miss Thursday in the Tour Championship. Tiger Woods didn’t make a thing.
Dufner bogeyed the final two holes Sunday for a 2-under 68 that was good enough to hold off 2003 U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk.
Let the Final Round begin! And what a packed leaderboard it is! Picking a winner won’t be easy.
Whoever wins this one will have to earn it. “It will be a fun weekend,” Woods said. “This golf course is going to be difficult.”
England, South Africa, Sweden, Scotland, Spain, Italy and USA… it’s an international leaderboard after the first round of The Masters.
