The Golf Blog says: 51-year old Davis Love III shot a final round 64 (-17) to steal Tiger Woods’ thunder at the Wyndham Championship. Love bested Jason Gore by 1 shot (-16). Tiger had his troubles at 11, with a triple bogey. Although he clawed his way back to even for the day, it was a disappointing finish for Tiger (although his first top 10 this year).Tweet

The Golf Blog says: Jordan Spieth is left-handed. And he can throw a curve ball. Who knew?Tweet

Game over, very happy for Jason. Great dude and well deserved. Hats off to Jordan, incredible season. Calling it early.

The Golf Blog says: Jason Day, the 27-year old Aussie, finally broke through at the majors. And he did so in record-setting fashion. Day won the PGA Championship at -20, the first time anyone has ever finished -20 a major championship. Day held off Jordan Spieth, who finished second at -17. Spieth’s second place finish vaulted him above Rory McIlroy for the World No. 1 ranking.
History for Jason Day. He becomes 1st player to ever finish 20-under in a major championship. pic.twitter.com/Ua0Kg6Hkt3

A dance fitting for Zach Johnson's birdie filled Final Round. https://t.co/Q27f7ARU0F

The Golf Blog says: When it was all said a done at St. Andrews, a Johnson did win the British Open. Only it wasn’t Dustin, it was Zach.
Zach Johnson madie a clutch birdie putt on 18 (a la Stewart Cink in 2009 at the Open to force a playoff, too) to post -15. His caddie Damon Green loved the putt so much he did a little dance.
As it turned out, -15 would be the number. Marc Leishman and Louis Oushuizen both matched it. Jordan Spieth, who made a Tiger-like birdie putt on 16 to get to -15, bogeyed the difficult 17th Road Hole (missing an 8 footer) to fall back to -14. Jordan played a very nervous 18, hitting a hook off the tee, missing the green and his desperation birdie putt from the fringe. Meanwhile, Jason Day, playing with Spieth, also had a chance to join the playoff but left his birdie putt about a foot short. Ouch, Jason may have teared up as his chance to win a major slipped away–again.
Zach then took charge of the 4-hole playoff, rattling off 2 straight birdies. Everyone bogeyed the Road (kill) hole, 17th. And, with pars on 18, Zach was the winner by 1 shot over Oosty.
Zach adds a second major to his impressive record.Tweet
