TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola: Seeking to become the first British player to win the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, finished solo second to Brandt Snedeker at East Lake GC. Shared the first-round lead with Woods, with a 4-under 66, and the 54-hole lead, with Snedeker, at 8-under 202. A final-round, 1-over 71 left him three behind Snedeker and gave him his fourth runner-up finish on the PGA TOUR. Entered the week No. 24 in the FedExCup standings, with his runner-up finish propelling him 18 spots to No. 6–the largest jump of the week (Ryan Moore was second, moving 17 spots from No. 28 to No. 11). Record fell to 2-9 when he has led or held a share of the 54-hole PGA TOUR lead.

Rose had entered the final round two strokes behind the leader Mickelson at one-over-par, after rounds of 71-69-71 during the first three days. He found himself further back after bogeys at the 3rd and 5th holes, sandwiching a birdie at the 4th. Successive birdies at the 6th and the 7th took him into a share of the lead. He misread his birdie putt at the 11th, which led to a bogey to fall back to one-over for the tournament, as simultaneously Mickelson was holing his second shot from the fairway at the 10th to move into the lead. However, Rose responded with birdies at the 12th and 13th, to get under-par for the tournament and into a one-shot lead once again. He could not get up and down from a greenside bunker on the 14th and a further bogey on the 16th dropped Rose back to level for the day, but Mickelson made two bogeys at the 13th and 15th to remain one shot behind Rose.
BMW Masters: Managed to shoot an even-par 72 on a difficult scoring day in the final round of the European Tour's BMW Masters in Shanghai but fell a stroke short of the Marcel Siem-Ross Fisher-Alexander Levy playoff that Siem won.

Bold, patriotic designs from Puma’s Volition Collection have helped the reigning U.S. Open champ to carve out a unique look compared to the brand’s other TOUR players. These threads benefit a great cause, too, as Volition supports the families of military heroes through the Folds of Honor Foundation. Look for Puma to hook up Woodland with more limited edition shoes in 2020.
DP World Tour Championship: Finished third on the Race to Dubai final standings, helped by his T2 in the final event of the season–the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai in late-November 2014.

Quicken Loans National: The defending champion finished T4 in his bid to become the first three-time Quicken Loans National champion.

Finished T3 after a final-round 72. It was the 11th time he has led or tied for the lead going into the final round, of which he has won three times.
In 2003, Rose reached number 33 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He earned enough money to claim his PGA Tour card as a non-member for 2004 after finishing with more money than the 125th ranked player on the money list. In 2004, he played mostly in America on the PGA Tour, while also maintaining his membership on the European Tour. He did not have a great year and slipped out of the top 50 in the world rankings; however, he kept his tour card after earning in excess of a million dollars.
Masters Tournament: In his 13th start at the Masters, found himself tied after 54 holes with Sergio Garcia at 6-under 210. When the final group Sunday both posted scores of 3-under 69, sudden death ensued. On the first extra hole, No. 18, an errant tee shot resulted in a bogey and runner-up finish to Garcia. The finish was his sixth top-10 at the Masters, and third consecutive. With scores of 71-72-67-69, joined Garcia as the only two players to have avoided an over-par score that week.
At the U.S. Open in June 2019, Woodland held the 54-hole lead at Pebble Beach Golf Links. On Sunday, he shot a 2-under-par 69 for 271 (−13), which gave him a three-shot margin over the runner-up, two-time defending champion Koepka. Woodland became the fourth champion in U.S. Open history who was double-digits under-par. The victory was his first major and his sixth professional win. In his previous thirty starts in majors, Woodland had only carded two top-ten finishes, both in the PGA Championship (2018, 2019). The win at the U.S. Open moved him from 25th to 12th in the Official World Golf Ranking.. At the post-win press conference, Woodland Facetimed Bockerstette live, telling her "I used your positive energy." Two days later, Woodland joined Bockerstette with a surprise appearance on The Today Show where, pointing to the U.S. Open trophy in Bockerstette's hands, he told her "We won this together."
Most golf fans know Rose’s golf journey. He first swung a club when he was 11 months old, had a plus-1 handicap at the age of 14 and finished fourth at the 1988 Open Championship as a 17-year-old. Although he struggled early on as a pro, Rose won the 2013 U.S. Open and ascended as high as world No. 1. But if he weren’t a golfer, the Englishman says he’d like to be an architect. “I find it fascinating to be part of a project that starts from a piece of paper and ends up being something.”

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.
