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

The Golf Blog says: 2nd round leader Dustin Johnson faltered to a 75, slipping to -7 as the rest of the field went low at St. Andrews with soft greens and no wind at all. Jordan Spieth got himself into position for the third leg of the Grand Slam by finishing at -11. But the story of the day was amateur Paul Dunne tying for the lead at -12 with Louis Oosthuizen (who won at St. Andrews the last time the British Open was played here) and Jason Day. The leaderboard is jam packed with the likes of Paddy Harrington, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, and others.
Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson is 5 strokes back of the leaders with 16 players ahead of him, 7 of whom are major winners. It’s going to be a tall order for DJ to get his first major after today’s debacle.Tweet
