John Daly wins for the first time on PGA Tour Champions
The Inspirational Invitational is one of those rare occasions where we have seen Daly showcase his ability with the club. Things got a bit dicey when he bogeyed the final three holes at the Woodlands Country Club outside Houston but managed to win it by one which is his first PGA Tour Champions victory in his 22nd start. This also meant as his first U.S. victory since he won the PGA Tour’s Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines in 2004. His last victory came in a minor tournament in Turkey in 2014. He managed to earn $8,000 compared to his $322,000, the amount he earned with this win. Estaban Toledo and others drenched him in champagne as Daly described it as an awesome feeling to win it. He sure accepted that it was a close win, but he was nevertheless very thankful for the win.
Brian Harman wins the Wells Fargo Championship
Things looked way different when Dustin Johnson and Pat Perez holed birdie putts on the 18th hole to get in the clubhouse at nine-under par. Jon Rahm didn’t look too far with one shot back a few holes away. It looked like the Wells Fargo Championship was heading for a play-off but Brian Harman didn’t think so. He made birdies on his final two holes to shoot a four under 68 registering his second win on the PGA Tour, with the first one coming at the 2014 John Deere Classic. The win hasn’t come out of nowhere. Brian had top-10s at the Farmers Insurance Open, the RBC Heritage and the CareerBuilder Challenge back in late January. He has already gathered more than $1.1 million on the season, and the amount is expected to get doubled after this win. The win meant the Georgia native gets back into the Masters next year for the second time in his career.
Rory Mcllroy expected to use TaylorMade driver for the Players Championship
Rory is expected to make a driver shift for the Players Championship this week as he posted a slow-motion video on Instagram which clearly shows he was using a TaylorMade driver. The model couldn’t be identified from the video. Rory has previously used TaylorMade’s original M2 model for his driver, 3-wood and 5-wood. Since Nike exited from the equipment business last August, Rory has enjoyed and used this freedom to explore new products. He has recently been using a Callaway Big Bertha Epic Sub Zero driver and also changed balls to Titleist’s Pro V1x.
