Gary Woodland wins Phoenix Open in playoff

Rickie Fowler is honoring his superfan Griffin Connell by wearing Connell's

Welcome to the Monday Finish, where Woodland's driving was characteristically strong, and he made 200 feet of putts on the weekend to break a five-year winless drought.

Woodland averaged 318.4 yards per drive, which was seventh best in the field.

"He's a miracle", Woodland said as he held Jaxson in his arms.

For a player who went through so much last season Woodland played remarkably well in all areas except one.

"I was in the zone", Woodland said.

2 A solid short game is crucial everywhere.

City are just eight wins away from a third Premier League title, despite being held by the Clarets. Before the actual football, it's time for the steamy foreplay I like to call "the team news".

Woodland is a bomber, who continues to work with Harmon, but has been focusing on his short game with another popular instructor, Pete Cowen. That helped, as did Woodland reuniting with friend Brad Faxon in the off-season. "My wife kind of surprised me with him", Woodland said. "It was obviously a long year for us, but, I'm very happy, one to be holding him and to be where I'm at right now".

"He just really had a solid year, all the way around", right tackle Lane Johnson said.

"Yeah, that was just kind of a tribute to a year ago", he said of 2017, when Jaxson was born a month premature in June after his twin sister was lost in a miscarriage.

3 Justin Thomas looks like a future victor in Phoenix. He then won with a tap-in par after Reavie bogeyed the first playoff hole.

Rickie Fowler birdied his last three holes to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. On Thursday in the first round, he had a double bogey on 16 and a bogey on 17. I think about seven-eighths of them were posted up on the 16th hole for all the festivities unfolding there. "I like this golf course".

4 Ollie Schniederjans keeps getting closer to that first win.

Lee Hee-beom, chairman of the Pyeongchang Olympics organizing committee, says they'll be sequestered until they're declared well. About 3,000 athletes will be on hand for the opening ceremony, the first Olympics in South Korea since the 1988 Summer Games.

Robert Garrigus had spectators in a frenzy after nearly making an ace on the par-four 17th, the flag-pole being the only thing to deny him the hole-in-one. "I'm hitting the ball where I'm looking and hitting a lot of great putts, and I'm really excited about what's coming". "So it's been nice to have him on the road the last five weeks". However, Phil Mickelson cited the galleries as part of his Saturday success.

Alas, Mickelson simply ran out of holes. After a bogey on the par-3 16th, he chipped to 3 feet for birdie on the par-4 17th. It was his first title since the 2013 Reno-Tahoe Open. I had to deal with it internally, but physically I was playing well. "Just wanted her to know I still love her", he said.

The PGA Tour now moves back to California for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. Then it's on to the Genesis Open at Riviera, where he went back-to-back in 2008 and 2009. I mean, not really knowing his schedule, missing a few events, going home.

Popular names occupied the leader board at the outset of play on Sunday, Gary Woodland's not among them. "There's no reason why I shouldn't". That is the difference between Woodland's $1,242,00 and second place money.

Woodland won the hole and the tournament with a par and Reavie, who had birdied the final two holes to force the playoff, made bogey. The 24-year-old was one of 20 first-timers at TPC Scottsdale and the only top-10 finisher.

Hadley, a Web.com Tour graduate, continued his scintillating season with his fourth top-five finish.

Pfaff said that he was not sure how many people were affected by the alert but, "I think it was a lot based on the response". Information from USA Today and Treasure Coast News was used in this report . -This report was updated at 12:12 p.m.

Justin Thomas shot a five-under 66 in round four to finish in a tie for 17th at 11 under. Not bad, for him, but he still has room for improvement.
