It was no surprise, then, that Reed drew a poor lie in an indentation in the sand. What was surprising was what happened next: Reed took two practice swings that would face significant scrutiny over the coming hours. On the first practice swing, he placed his club on the sand behind his ball, took it club low and away, and scraped a quantity of sand from behind his ball. His second practice swing was slightly more square to the target, and as he pulled the club away he scraped an additional bit of sand out of the way. It looked pretty cut-and-dry: there had been sand in the way, and Reed cleared a path.
Advanced to the FedExCup Playoffs for the fifth consecutive time, making it to the TOUR Championship for the fourth time in a row. Ended his season at No. 22 in the FedExCup. Made 25 cuts in 29 starts while posting 15 top-25 finishes, including four top-10s. After at least one victory in each of the four previous seasons, went winless in the 2016-17, with a best result of T2 at the PGA Championship. Played for the U.S. Presidents Cup team at Liberty National, going 3-1-1, losing to Louis Oosthuizen in Sunday's Singles.

Schauffele was the only golfer to publicly announce that his driver had failed a test earlier in the week. He also said that he made his displeasure known afterwards with The R&A. “I had a word with them and hopefully they take my comments seriously and my concerns, just because it wasn’t my plan to show up Monday morning of a major or Tuesday — sorry, it was Tuesday evening — where I was doing driver testing here. It’s not really what players want to be doing.”


DEAN & DELUCA Invitational: The two-time Hogan Award winner (given annually onsite Monday of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational) trailed 54-hole leader Webb Simpson by four strokes at the start of the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. After a bogey on the par-4 third, made five birdies en route to a 4-under 66. Barely missed a 12'2" putt on the last for birdie to force a playoff with Kevin Kisner. Marked his seventh top-10 finish in 14 starts this season, with four inside the top three. Was looking to join fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia on the list of players to win the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in their first appearance.
Justin Louis Thomas (born April 29, 1993) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour and a former World Number One. In 2017, Thomas experienced a breakout year, winning five PGA Tour events, including the PGA Championship, his maiden major championship, and also winning the FedEx Cup championship. In May 2018, Thomas became the 21st player to top the Official World Golf Ranking.
World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship: Earned his third win in 14 starts, capturing the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship with rounds of 68-75-69-72. That led to a one-stroke victory over Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson. His 4-under 284 total was the highest winning total at the Cadillac Championship and equaled Mark McCumber's winning score in 1985 for highest in any event at Doral. At age 23 years, 7 months, 4 days, became the youngest player to ever win a World Golf Championships event, with Tiger Woods (23 years, 7 months, 30 days) the previous youngest with his win at the 1999 Bridgestone Invitational. The win moved him a step closer to Rory McIlroy on the list of players under 25 with multiple wins. Trailed only McIlroy (six) but moved one win ahead of Russell Henley (two) and Harris English (two). Joined Jimmy Walker (three) as the TOUR's only multiple winners of the season, in the process improving his record with the 54-hole lead/co-lead to a perfect 3 for 3 Previously held at least a share of the lead after every round in his two wins this season.

But then he stepped into the scoring area and stayed there for a number of minutes. Woodland emerged and headed to Golf Channel’s stand-up area to give post-round comments. Reed started to walk out of the scoring area but then was called back in by Slugger White. After another minute, he emerged. A PGA Tour staffer spoke to Reed, who said he would be declining to give an interview on Golf Channel or give official remarks to reporters at the podium. But as a group of reporters looked on, Reed motioned them over and said he was happy to discuss what had happened.
The Barclays: Held share of 18-hole lead, plus solo 36-hole lead, before entering final round of The Barclays one stroke behind 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. Playing in the final pairing in the final round with Fowler, was tied with nine holes to play before Fowler bogeyed No. 11. Doubled his lead over Fowler with birdie at No. 12. When Fowler dropped out of contention with a double bogey at No. 16, all he needed was a bogey on the final hole to win by a stroke over Sean O'Hair and Emiliano Grillo, both already in the clubhouse. A plugged lie in a fairway bunker led to a forced lay-up and an eventual two-putt bogey for a 1-under 71 and a one-stroke victory. Earned his fifth TOUR title at age 26, joining Jordan Spieth (21) and Rory McIlroy (23) as youngest winners with five TOUR titles in last 10 years. At No. 7 in the FedExCup standings, entered the FedExCup Playoffs as the highest-ranked player without a win. The Barclays marked his second come-from-behind win, a feat he also achieved at the 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions. It was also the third time he went on to win after holding the solo 36-hole lead.
Reed was born in 1990 in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from University High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.[4][5] While there, he won the 2006 Junior Open Championship and also qualified for the U.S. Amateur in 2007.[6] Reed led University High to state championships in 2006 and 2007, and also won the state medalist honors in 2007.[5] He earned Rolex AJGA All-America honors in 2005, 2006, and 2007.[7][8][9]

Zurich Classic of New Orleans: In first start since winning the Masters Tournament, finished T7 with teammate Patrick Cantlay at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. With rounds of 71 and 69, the duo was one of three teams to shoot both Foursomes rounds (R2 and R4) under-par (Brendan Steele/Jamie Lovemark, Chad Campbell/Matt Jones). For the first time since the 2017 TOUR Championship, all four reigning major champions were in the field at a PGA TOUR event (Reed/Masters, Brooks Koepka/U.S. Open, Jordan Spieth/The Open, Justin Thomas/PGA Championship). Was the only one of the four to make the cut.
After the U.S. Open, Rahm turned professional, which meant that he forfeited his exemption into the 2016 Open Championship. The next week Rahm played in his first event as a pro at the Quicken Loans National. He held or shared the lead for the first two rounds and finished tied for third place, four strokes behind the winner, Billy Hurley III.[11] The finish was enough for Rahm to regain entry into The Open, as the Quicken Loans National was part of the Open Qualifying Series. Rahm finished tied runner-up in the RBC Canadian Open, securing Special Temporary Member status for the remainder of the season.[12] He gained enough points as a non-member to earn a PGA Tour card for 2017.
Adept at the long put and renowned as one of the game’s foremost power players and big hitters, Thomas has shot some of the lowest scores in golfing history. In winning his first PGA event, he shot a course record 61, and at the Sony Open in Hawaii in 2017, he shot a 59 and became the youngest player in PGA history to shoot a sub-60 score, going on to win by seven shots. And at the 2017 U.S. Open in Erin Hills in Wisconsin, he equalled that major’s lowest round score, shooting a 63.

At 10-under 270, finished T6. Was tied for the lead at one point Sunday, before two bogeys on his last five holes resulted in the T6 showing.
