Justin Thomas Wins the 99th PGA Championship

It was some kind of roller coaster ride today [Sunday] at Quail Hallow.The Leader board changed several times. It was a day of highs and lows. Golf is a game of patience and self control. Justin Thomas exemplifies these two skills. He had one heck of a Round but kept his cool throughout the whole day.  He even tipped his cap to Lady Luck on the Birdie at 10.  What transpired was simply astonishing.  His journey to winning was nothing short of epic.

It all started at the 7th Hole where he made a good birdie. He kept the same tee shot on the 8th and wasn’t about to lose a stroke. He would end up Paring the Hole. With this bit of momentum he went down the 9th Hole and Birdied it.  At this point he was still off the lead by a few strokes. And then Hole 10 happened and it was a godsend.

He got on the Green in 3 strokes but he had a difficult Putt to make. Calmly and coolly he Putted the ball, it went right up to the Cup and stopped right on the edge.  It looked like one of those missed opportunities, Justin Thomas rolled his eyes and thought that he missed it.  But then after a few long moments it rolled in. It was instantly a game changer and a pivotal moment in the day. The tides had turned in Thomas’ favor.

With the momentum on his side suddenly anything could happen. Justin Thomas was now atop the Leader board.  He made some solid shots on the dreaded 12th and 13th Holes.  He even had an amazing Birdie on the 13th and was really finding his groove.  He was now -8 with sole possession of the lead.

He played the Back 9 just perfectly, mind you this was the toughest part of the Course. He entered the Green Mile, 16th 17th and 18th, with confidence. And it was this confidence that lead him to make an outstanding tee shot over the water on 17.  He would go on to Birdie it from a distance of just a few feet.

And that would pretty much seal it for the Championship. Well done! He finished the Tournament -8 on the day, he made sure that he had some breathing room at the 18th, so he could clinch it. What an amazing Game. As I said before Golf is about patience and self control, Justin Thomas played the Course and not the Leader Board. It was something to watch!  Congratz on his first Major Tournament win!

Dustin Johnson Leads After Round 1 At Dell Technologies Championship

After round 1 at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Dustin Johnson leads the pack.

But the leaderboard at the top is looking quite tight after round one.

First-Round Leaderboard

Dustin Johnson             66 (-5)

Kyle Stanley                 67 (-4)

Marc Leishman             67 (-4)

Sergio Garcia               67 (-4)

Jon Rahm                     67 (-4)

Four golfers are tied for second place at 4 under par sitting one shot back of Johnson’s 5 under par lead.

Johnson birdied the 10th hole at TPC Boston to get his opening round underway and converted a putt of less than five feet for eagle at No. 18 to make the turn 4-under. His inward nine of 1-under contributed to a 5-under 66.

In his eighth appearance at the Dell Technologies Championship, Johnson’s 66 marked his lowest opening round at TPC Boston. Johnson’s best result in the Dell Technologies Championship is T4 (twice, 2009, 2012). He finished T8 at TPC Boston last year.

Defending Dell Technologies Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 final hole for a 1-over 72.

Round 2 kicks off on Saturday with the same pairings as round 1.

Dell Technologies Championship Preview

Dell Technologies Championship Preview: TV Information, Field, And More

The FedExCup returns to TPC Boston this weekend, but this time something is different.

No longer is the championship sponsored by Deutsche Bank, instead, it has been rebranded as the Dell Technologies Championship. The reigning champion of the tournament, Rory McIlroy will be present for the Labor Day weekend tournament and enters it ranked No. 43 in the FedExCup after beginning the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 44.

McIlroy had an impressive comeback at last years event after being tied for 67th overall after an opening round 71. But he posted a final round 65 as he was able to close and eclipse a 6 stroke lead Paul Casey had entering the final round in 2016. That six stroke come-from behind win happens to be the largest in the tournament’s history.

But this year looks to be different at the  Dell Technologies Championship. For starters, McIlroy won the FedExCup in 2016 and looks to be nowhere close to being able to do that this time around. The favorites heading into this weekend are the top 6 in the FedExCup standings.

  1. Dustin Johnson
  2. Jordan Spieth
  3. Justin Thomas
  4. Hideki Matsuyama
  5. John Rahm
  6. Rickie Fowler
