U.S. Senior Open | Women’s PGA Championship | Other Tour Results

The U.S. Senior Open Championship and the Women’s PGA Championship concluded today with compelling final rounds in both tournaments. The Senior Open featured a four-way tie for the lead on the back nine and the Women’s PGA ended with a three-way playoff. There was a runaway in the PGA Tour’s Quicken Loans National while the European Tour’s Open de France finished with 11 men within three strokes of the winner.

U.S. Senior Open Results

Despite shooting a 1-over par 71, Jerry Kelly maintained the 54-hole lead in the U.S. Senior Open by one stroke over David Toms, who fired a third round 66 to move himself up the leaderboard and into position. Kelly had led after each of the first two rounds as well, shooting a 66 on day one and following that up with a 69 to stand at 5-under through 36 holes, one shot ahead of Miguel Angel Jimenez.

Jimenez shot a 3-over par 73 to fall back to 1-under after the third round but still only three shots back. Kirk Triplett shot a 68 in the third round to put himself at 2-under par, tied with Tim Petrovic, who had a 71. Brandt Jobe matched Toms with a 66 and was tied with Jimenez and Paul Goydos, who shot a third round 70.

Final Round Notes

Jimenez got off to a quick start with birdies at the 1st and 3rd hole to quickly put himself in the mix at 3-under par and tied with Toms. Jobe birdied the 2nd hole to move to 2-under par and a birdie at the 3rd put Goydos at 2-under. Toms made a birdie at the 2nd hole to jump into a tie with Kelly at 4-under par until Kelly birdied the 3rd to take the lead at 5-under, while Petrovic bogeyed the 4th to drop to 1-under. Jobe made a bogey at the 6th hole to drop himself back to 1-under par.

Jimenez birdied the 7th hole to get to 4-under par and tied with Toms for 2nd place again, but a double bogey at the 8th dropped him back to 2-under. A bogey at the 9th hole dropped Jimenez back to where he began at 1-under par while a birdie by Jobe at the 8th moved him back to 2-under. Goydos also birdied the 8th hole and moved himself to 3-under par, while Petrovic made a bogey at the 7th to fall to even par.

Goydos birdied the 9th hole to get to 4-under par but a bogey at 10 put him back to 3-under. Petrovic also made a birdie at the 9th hole to get back to 1-under par while Kelly and Toms both bogeyed the 8th to drop to 4-under and 3-under, respectively. Jimenez bogeyed the 12th hole to fall back to even par and Petrovic birdied the 10th to move to 2-under. A bogey at the 12th hole dropped Goydos back to 2-under and Kelly made a bogey at the 11th to fall to 3-under.

Jimenez birdied the 15th hole to get back to 1-under par while Kelly bogeyed the 12th to fall to 2-under and Toms had the lead. Jobe made a bogey at the 15th hole to fall back to 1-under par and Goydos birdied the 15th to climb back to 3-under and in the lead when Toms bogeyed the 13th. Petrovic bogeyed the 15th hole to drop back to 1-under par and Goydos missed a four footer for par at the 17th to drop him back into a tie with Toms and Kelly at 2-under par.

Jimenez made a birdie at the final hole to finish at 2-under par and move into a four-way tie for the lead. Toms made a birdie at 16 to pull out of the tie and take the lead at 3-under par. Jobe narrowly missed a birdie at 18 that would have tied him with Jimenez as leader in the clubhouse. Goydos made another bogey on 18 to fall back to 1-under par and out of the picture. Petrovic knocked it stiff at 18 and made a birdie to get to 2-under par and tied with Jimenez.

Toms made a 15-foot putt for par at 17 after driving into the fairway bunker, maintaining his one shot lead over Jimenez, Petrovic and Kelly heading to the 18th. Toms hit his tee shot left just off the fairway in the first cut of short rough while Kelly missed the fairway in the heavy rough to the right. Toms knocked his approach to within 15 feet and looked to seal the deal, especially when Kelly came up short of the green. Kelly made a nice run with his putter from off the green but left Toms needing just two putts to win. Putting from above the hole down the hill, Toms’ first putt crept by the hole and rolled two and a half feet past. He rolled it in from there to win by one over the group at 2-under par and become the U.S. Senior Open Champion.

KPMG Women’s PGA Championship Results

Sung Hyun Park made a birdie on the second playoff hole to defeat Su Yeon Ryu for her second major championship in the KMPG Women’s PGA Championship today at Kemper Lakes Golf Club. Last week’s winner, Nasa Hataoka, was eliminated on the first playoff hole when Park and Ryu both made birdies there. The birdies made by Park and Ryu at the 18th, which was the first playoff hole, were only the second and third birdies made on that hole all day.

Ryu finished the third round at 11-under par with a three stroke lead over Brooke Henderson, and four strokes ahead of Park, after a third round of 67. You can see from this look at the third round leaderboard that Henderson and Park seem to be in the best position to overtake Ryu, with the chances diminishing for players further back. Hataoka is not even in the picture at this point.

Final Round Notes

TaylorMade Spider Tour putter

Sung Hyun Park uses the TaylorMade Spider Tour putter.

Nataoka, starting her day at 2-under par, 9 strokes behind Ryu, and teeing off an hour and a half before the other leaders, went out and shot an 8-under 64 that included 5 birdies, 2 eagles and only one bogey. When she finished her round at 10-under par she was the leader in the clubhouse and in 2nd place overall, posting a score the others would need to match.

Ryu appeared to be doing just that, rolling in a birdie putt on the 16th hole to move to 12-under par and two strokes ahead of Hataoka and Park, who made an incredible par save at the same hole by slashing her third shot out of the hazard to within four feet. But Ryu would pull her tee shot left into the hazard at the par-3 17th, making a double bogey on the hole, and dropping her back to 10-under par, tied with Hataoka and Park.

Both Ryu and Park made pars at the final hole to finish tied with Hataoka at 10-under par, sending the three women into a playoff which would begin at the 18th. The 18th had played as the toughest hole all day, yielding only one birdie throughout the final round to Sarah Jane Smith.

Playoff Notes

Ryu and Hataoka each narrowly missed the green on the first playoff hole with their second shots, with both players up against the collar of rough surrounding the fringe. Park hit her approach shot to the first playoff hole closer than either of her rivals, knocking it on the green and to within 12 feet for birdie.

Ryu was first to play and made a great stroke on the ball from about 25 feet away, rolling it right into the cup for birdie and putting the pressure on Hataoka and Park. Hataoka, who was a little closer than Ryu had been but on a different angle, had a bit more rough to deal with on her shot, and was unable to match the birdie Ryu had just made, and was eliminated. Park stepped up to her ball and rolled it in to match Ryu’s birdie and send the two women to the 16th for a second playoff hole¬†where Park made another birdie to best Ryu’s par and win the championship.

Notables

Brooke Henderson, playing in the final group with Park and Ryu, shot a 2-over par 74 and fell into a tie for 6th place. Lexi Thompson had a 68 to finish at 3-under par in a tie for 15th place, while Michelle Wie shot a 71 and Stacy Lewis had a 72 to put the two of them at even par and in a tie for 28th. Lydio Ko shot a 76 to finish at 1-over par in a tie for 31st place and Ariya Jutanugarn finished 3-over par and tied for 40th after shooting her third straight 73. Inbee Park shot 73-76 and missed the cut.
