AUGUSTA, Ga. - Hideki Matsuyama delivered golf-mad Japan the grandest and greenest prize of all.
Ten years after Matsuyama made a sterling debut as the best amateur at Augusta National, he claimed the ultimate trophy Sunday with a victory in the Masters Tournament to become the first Japanese winner of a men's major.
As the golfing world returns to Augusta just six months after Dustin Johnson’s record-breaking performance, TaylorMade Golf Company honors his major championship victory by announcing the Dustin Johnson Spider Limited Commemorative Edition putter.
Dustin Johnson is an all-time competitor. You've seen it on the PGA TOUR countless times, so you know the 2020 Masters champion would never back down from a challenge.
At the 2021 Valero Texas Open, Jordan Spieth claimed his 12th victory on the PGA TOUR with rounds of 67-70-67-66 to finish at 18-under-par at TPC San Antonio (AT&T Oaks).
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — Mirim Lee ran toward the water for the winner's leap into Poppie's Pond, and there was no blue wall to stop her.
How she even got to that point as the ANA Inspiration champion was shocking even to Lee.
She chipped in twice to stay in the hunt for a major title that for the longest time looked as though it would come down to Nelly Korda or Brooke Henderson. And then after a 5-wood that caromed off a temporary blue wall behind the 18th green and kept it from going in the water, Lee chipped for eagle and a 5-under 67.
That got her into a three-way playoff, and Lee ended it quickly.
She hit 5-wood just through the green — no help needed from the wall on that one — chipped to 5 feet and made the birdie putt. Korda missed the 18th fairway for the second time and made par, while Henderson's 7-foot birdie putt in the playoff stayed left of the hole.
