2018 Fedex Cup Playoffs | Northern Trust | Tour Golf Results

On the PGA Tour this week, the 2018 Northern Trust whittled down the field for the next round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs as new stars proved their mettle, and on the European Tour, a veteran champion attempted to return to the winner’s circle at the Czech Masters. The CP Women’s Open had fans dreaming of a native Canadian taking the title and the Champions Tour gave us a 29 in a front nine charge. A few more players locked up their PGA Tour cards for next year in the first round of the Web.com Tour Finals, the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship.

Final Round Report

Having begun the day with a four shot lead, Bryson DeChambeau birdied the first two holes to jump out to a six stroke advantage, but a bogey at the 3rd hole and then at the 9th gave the chasers a bit of hope as the lead was down to two over Aaron Wise at this point. Birdies at the 12th and the 13th hole pushed DeChambeau’s lead back to four.

Wise faded with bogeys at the 16th and the 17th hole, while Tony Finau had birdies at the 13th and the 14th to move into 2nd place. DeChambeau made par on the remaining holes to maintain the four shot lead all the way to the title.

DeChambeau finished at 18-under par with a 2-under par 69 and got his second victory of the season and took the lead in the Fedex Cup Standings. He also made a strong bid to be one of captain Jim Furyk’s picks for the Ryder Cup, having narrowly missed making the team on points.

Finau also gave evidence to his value as a captain’s pick as he finished with a 68 to take 2nd place at 14-under par. Billy Horschel also shot a 68 and finished in a tie for 3rd place at 13-under par with Cameron Smith, who had a 69. Ryan Palmer shot a 65 to finish at 12-under par in a tie for 5th place with Aaron Wise, who had a 67 and Adam Scott, who shot a 69.

Justin Thomas shot a 68 to finish tied for 8th place with Brooks Keopka and Patrick Cantlay, who both shot 69. Phil Mickelson fell into a tie for 15th place with an even par 71, while Tommy Fleetwood shot a 68 and moved up into a tie for 20th along with Jason Day, who fell back a bit with a 71.
