Backed up his FedExCup-winning 2018 season with a respectable 26th place in the season-long race in 2019. Rose won the Farmers Insurance Open to hit double digit PGA TOUR wins and was third three times over last season showing that while he’s heading towards his 40s, he won’t be slowing down any time soon. What has been great to see is Rose’s ability to keep up his putting resurrection. After being ranked outside the top 100 in 2014, 15, 16 and 17 in Strokes Gained: Putting, Rose has been 21st and 17th the last two seasons. It has allowed him to get away with a little waywardness off the tee at times. If he can marry up both parts of the game to go with his usual impeccable iron shot standards, then becoming a two-time FedExCup champion is certainly not beyond him.
Similarly, in June, Fleetwood finished fourth in the U.S. Open. Also, in July, he won the Open de France, beating Peter Uihlein by a stroke, after a bogey-free final in round 66. Furthermore, he moved from 99th in the World Rankings at the start of the year into the world top-20. In November 2017, Tommy won the European Tour season-long Race to Dubai.
He usually says whatever pops into his anecdote-filled, zany mind, a trait that has made David Feherty quite popular in his role as a golf commentator for CBS, NBC and Golf Channel. It should also come in handy in this prime-time series, with the bulk of each episode being an interview Feherty conducts with a well-known sports, entertainment or political figure. The former European and PGA tour pro -- a born and bred Irishman who became a U.S. citizen in 2010 -- also shares unique golf stories and his ever-so-present observations on life's peculiarities.
AT&T National: Held on for a victory at the AT&T National, his second victory of the season and of his career. Held a five-stroke lead entering the final nine, hit every green in regulation and made seven consecutive pars to finish the tournament and beat Ryan Moore by one stroke. Moore one-putted his last eight greens, including a 12-foot par putt on the 18th hole, for a Sunday-best 65 to make it a battle. Rose two-putted up a dangerous ridge on the tough 17th for par. And with the Fourth of July fireworks booming in the distance, he hit the fairway and green for one last par on the final hole. Rose finished the AT&T National at 10-under 270.
In March 2011, Woodland won his first PGA Tour title at the Transitions Championship by one stroke when fellow American Webb Simpson missed a par putt on the final hole. Just a few moments earlier Woodland had scrambled a fantastic par from the same position as Simpson on the last, after hitting his second shot over the back of the green. This win secured Woodland a place at the 2011 Masters Tournament and also elevated him to what was then a career high 53rd in the Official World Golf Ranking. He later earned an invitation into the U.S. Open after moving into the Top 50. He left the tournament with an OWGR ranking of 39th. In November 2011, he won the Omega Mission Hills World Cup with Matt Kuchar. He finished 2011 ranked 17th on the PGA Tour money list and 51st in the OWGR. He had ended 2009 ranked 962 and 2010 591.
