Bryson DeChambeau became the latest to make a professional name for himself in the Quad-Cities on Sunday afternoon.
This was his breakthrough moment, much like Spieth and Harman. "It's pretty special to win here at the John Deere".
During the trophy presentation when Deere & Co.
But on the PGA tour - he hasn't played since the US Open at Erin Hills, where he finished tied for 16th. "He's done some incredible things for the game of golf, and I hope I can do something similar down the road". The scoring average on the hole through the final round was 5.197, the highest compared to par of any hole at TPC Deere Run.
Pauline Rostron, from Formby Ladies and Chester's Sally Pearson won the R&A Nine Hole Championship Final at Royal Birkdale. Rodgers would drop a shot at the same hole after finding the trees with his tee shot. "It is two pretty simple holes". The 361-yard par-4 No. 14 was.398 strokes under par. "I've just been working so hard my whole life to try to do this". You look at that (second) shot at 18, he followed it right to the flag.
Rodgers, though, had trouble controlling his driver on the inward nine. Seeking his third major win of the year, the 59-year German had a one-shot lead before dropping his tee shot in the water on No. 17.
Rodgers was left with an 8-footer to save par but the putt lipped out. Rodgers almost chipped in from 50 feet to force a playoff, missing the cup by a foot. He ran his second shot over the green.
He then rifled his approach shot to the par-four 18th, his ball landing just short of the hole before trickling beyond, not as close as he would have liked but not bad under the circumstances.
It was Rodgers' best finish on the PGA Tour this season.
McCarron finished 18 under to beat Langer and Brandt Jobe by one shot.
The victory punctuated somewhat of a comeback for DeChambeau. I still hit good shots I just didn't score, that's unfortunate. "I knew it on the front nine".
"I wasn't as sharp as I was the past couple of days".
"I think I got a little antsy at times".
While he gained notoriety for his unconventional approach and single-length irons, DeChambeau's season got off to a rocky start and he missed his eighth cut in a row at the U.S. Open.
"I show everybody there's plenty of ways to do it and I like doing it my way and I feel comfortable doing it my way". I knew I would definitely be back.
Kelly Kraft made arguably the day's most impressive shot on No. 17.
His win also includes an invitation to the British Open, which starts on Thursday.
And like Stewart, he hopes a win here can launch his career to bigger things.
"He's a great competitor, and I was kind of shocked he bogeyed 17", DeChambeau said about Rodgers.
