Banging toilet door blamed for Rahm's poor chip shot (Reuters) (Mar 27, 2017 4:35am) |
(Reuters) - Jon Rahm blamed a loud noise, reported as a slamming portable toilet door, for a poor chip shot at the final hole that cost him a chance of forcing extra holes in his final against Dustin Johnson at the WGC-Dell Match Play on Sunday. Rahm was just starting his backswing for the 80-foot shot at Austin Country Club in Texas when a sudden noise reverberated across the green. “That’s absolutely why I missed it,” Rahm told Golf Channel, referring to the noise, which NBC television said was a portable toilet door banging.
After Match Play, can anyone beat Dustin Johnson? (The Associated Press) (Mar 27, 2017 1:18am)Lee motors away in final round for six-stroke Kia Classic win (Reuters) (Mar 27, 2017 12:10am) (Reuters) - South Korean Lee Mi-rim turned a close Kia Classic into a procession, charging clear for a six-stroke victory in Carslbad, California on Sunday. Starting the day one-stroke in front, Lee birdied all five odd-numbered holes on the front nine en route to a seven-under-par 65 on the Aviara course. "It’s been a long time to be winner of the tournament,” Lee told reporters via a translator after clinching her third LPGA victory at the age of 26.
Dustin Johnson has been around long enough to realize he's not going to win every golf tournament he plays. In the longest week of the year - seven matches over five days - and one of the toughest tournaments to win because match play is so unpredictable, Johnson delivered the outcome everyone expected Sunday at Austin Country Club. The final act was to hold off a remarkable charge by Jon Rahm, a 22-year-old Spanish rookie who never saw a shot that scared him.
Lee wins Kia by tying tournament record at 20-under par (The Associated Press) (Mar 26, 2017 9:13pm)Johnson wins Match Play to sweep World Golf Championships (The Associated Press) (Mar 26, 2017 8:11pm)
Mirim Lee took the lead into the final round of the Kia Classic two years ago and was overhauled by Cristie Kerr, who won with a tournament record of 20-under. Lee had the 54-hole lead again this year, and she wasn't about to let anyone catch her. Lee, of South Korea, shot a 7-under 65 to win by six strokes Sunday and tie Kerr's tournament record.
The final day lasted longer than Dustin Johnson wanted. Johnson, a golfing machine with no discernible weakness and hardly any pulse, won the Dell Technologies Match Play on Sunday for his third straight victory, this one making him the first person to sweep the four World Golf Championships. Johnson was taken to the 18th hole in the semifinal before making an 8-foot putt to beat Hideto Tanihara, and then Jon Rahm rallied from 5 down with 10 holes to play until his fearless charge fell short on the final hole.
Johnson holds on to beat Rahm in Match Play final (Reuters) (Mar 26, 2017 6:58pm)Points uses nine birdies to win Puerto Rico Open (Reuters) (Mar 26, 2017 4:24pm) (Reuters) - American journeyman D.A. Points reaped the benefits of a recent switch to a cross-handed putting style, rolling in nine birdies on his way to a two-stroke victory at the Puerto Rico Open on Sunday. Points made a blazing start to the final round with five successive birdies, and also birdied four of the last six holes, carding six-under-par 66 despite three mid-round bogeys on the Coco Beach course in Rio Grande. Overnight leader Chris Stroud proved prescient in his prediction of a winning score of at least 20-under, but was not the man to post that number, carding 71 to finish four shots behind.
(Reuters) - American Dustin Johnson became the first player to win all four World Golf Championships events when he claimed the WGC-Dell Match Play in Texas on Sunday. World number one and top seed Johnson beat Spanish 21st seed Jon Rahm 1-up in the 18-hole final at Austin Country Club. Johnson built a 5-up lead after eight holes and held on, though only barely, after a late Rahm rally that cut the lead to 1-up after 16 holes.
D.A. Points wins Puerto Rico for 3rd PGA Tour title (The Associated Press) (Mar 26, 2017 4:15pm) D.A. Points was never better at the start, and good enough at the end. Points opened the final round of the Puerto Rico Open with five straight birdies, and then overcame a rugged stretch by saving pars and piling up enough birdies for a 6-under 66 on Sunday and a two-shot victory. It was the third PGA Tour victory of his career, and felt just as sweet as when he won at Pebble Beach with Bill Murray as his partner, and four years ago at the Houston Open to get to the Masters.
