Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard: Finished T9 for his fourth top-10 finish in 11 starts at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. Opened with under-par scores of 68-66-71 and entered the final round trailing 54-hole leader Jason Day by four strokes before a 1-over 73 left him T9 and seven behind Day. It marked his fifth finish of T17 or better in his first six starts of the season.
Fort Worth Invitational: Won the Fort Worth Invitational by three strokes over Brooks Koepka for his second win of the season (Fort Worth Invitational, World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions). Moved to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings following the victory, matching the highest previous position of his career (spent one week at No. 2 following his win at The National in 2010). Matched his previous-best 72-hole score on the PGA TOUR (260/2017 Sony Open in Hawaii) and recorded the lowest 72-hole score on TOUR since the 2017 Wyndham Championship (Henrik Stenson/258). Became the fifth multiple winner of the season (Patton Kizzire, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jason Day, Justin Rose). Became the fifth international player since 2000 to win the event (Sergio Garcia/2001, Nick Price/2002, Rory Sabbatini/2007, Adam Scott/2014).
Imagine playing a casual round of golf with a legendary player such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Nick Faldo, Ray Floyd, Colin Montgomerie, Juli Inkster and Laura Davies? Those are just a few of the former greats and current stars of the PGA and LPGA tours who have taken viewers inside the ropes as they make their way around a course, discussing such things as shot setup, club selection, strategy and other helpful hints and tips. It's a priceless lesson, a chance to dissect a pro's thought process as he or she executes all manner of shots.
In 2010, Rose had a third place at the Honda Classic, and then he broke through with a victory at the Memorial Tournament with a final round 66 to win by three strokes over Rickie Fowler. This was his first win on American soil. The next day, Rose had to try to qualify for the U.S. Open, along with runner-up Rickie Fowler. Neither qualified which raised questions about the qualifications of the U.S. Open. In his first tournament start since his win, at the Travelers Championship two weeks later, Rose led by three shots entering the final round, but fell away to a tie for ninth. His good form continued in the following week's tournament, however, where he led by four shots after three rounds and shot a final-round even par 70 to win his second PGA Tour event – the AT&T National.
I joined meandmygolf just under a month ago, after I saw the free videos on YouTube. I liked the way Piers & Andy explained the concepts, and sign... ed up for the free 30-days. I've played one year previously (2008), before I went to university, and had to drop this expensive hobby. I started playing golf again this summer, and was playing somewhere around 95-110 shots. I wanted to get better fast, and started the Break100-plan to get under 100 constently. I went through the plan a bit quicker, 2 weeks of the plan in one week, and just after I finished the last week, I pulled an amazing score of 84!!! That is absolutely insane. Something just clicked. If you want to build your game back up, or just go back to the basics, don't skip the drills. They may sound tedious and lame, but they actually help. Stick with the plan, and I guarantee it will work! Can't wait for the Break90 plan! Awesome job Piers & Andy! Read More
Buick Championship: First was a solo-third at the Buick Championship, where he held the 36- and 54-hole leads. Opened with bogey-free rounds of 65-63 to take a four-shot lead over Ben Curtis and Kevin Sutherland. Led Curtis by one entering final round after a third-round 70, but was overtaken by Brad Faxon (61) and Tjaart van der Walt (64) on Sunday, falling one shot short of a playoff after posting a 1-under-par 69.
