Cantlay Bests DeChambeau in Epic Playoff at BMW

This was of the more exciting finishes that I have seen recently as Patrick Cantlay and Bryson DeChambeau battled all day, and then into a 6-hole playoff at the BMW Championship.  As they say, drive for show and putt for dough, and that was proven again as Cantlay won despite being regularly outdriven by 40 yards by Bryson.

Here are the highlights from the PGA Tour’s Youtube Channel.

149th Open Championship Final Round Highlights

Collin Morikawa won the 149th Open Championship at Royal St George’s, but if you’re like me you missed a significant part of the final round coverage because early Sunday afternoon is a time when certain things around the house have to get done.  If that’s you, then I have just what you need, The Open’s Youtube channel’s video of the final round highlights.

Kramer Hickok finished runnerup at the Travellers Championship, losing to Harris English after a eight-hole playoff. English finally made a birdie, the first in the playoff, to win for the 4th time.

The playoff went on so long that they had to sub in the standard bearer for the group after the 5th playoff hold, because the poor guy was exhausted from going back and forth between the 18th and 17th holes.

Kramer made me think of his namesake, Seinfeld’s Kramer, so I found this video of clips from a classic episode of Seinfend on Youtube.


Some Reactions to Phil Mickelson’s PGA Championship Victory

Phil Mickelson defied the odds on Sunday and went out and won the PGA Championship at the age of 50!! I went on Twitter and found some reactions to a win for the ages.



Mike Weir Wins on Champions Tour

Mike Weir won his first PGA Tour Champions event at the Insperity Invitational at the Woodlands in Texas. Weir won the event by two shots over John Daly, Tim Petrovic, and David Toms.

Good for Mike Weir, who struggled for years to get back from injury and some questionable swing changes.

Here are the highlights from the PGA Champions Tour’s YouTube page:

Max Kieffer Puts Three in the Water on 5th Playoff Hole to Lose Austrian Open

Poor Maximilian Kieffer, the longtime European Tour player who is still looking for his maiden victory, plays great at the Austrian Open and ends up in a playoff with John Catlin. They play the par-3 18th over and over again, with it looking a couple of times like Kieffer would win. And then on the fifth time playoff hole, well, disaster.

I have the video from the European Tour Youtube page cued up the to the fifth time around here:

Congrats to John Catlin for the win, and keep your head up Max, that win will come.

Patty Tavatanakit holds off Lydia Ko to win ANA Inspiration


There was some incredible golf played at the ANA Inspiration.  Patty Tavatanakit played great for all four days, and Lydia Ko shot 10-under on the last day to make things a little interesting.  What looked what might have been a boring final round (Patty started with a 5-shot lead) turned into pretty compelling theatre.  There was lots of great golf played, but Patty and Lydia were the show on Sunday.

And of course there is the best victory celebration in all of sport.


In case you missed it, here are the highlights I found on the LPGA Youtube page.
