Leaderboard Of PGA Tour 2017

If you look at PGA Tour 2017, the final results are out now as the leader board has been finalized as it was concluded on Monday.

With Justin Thomas takes away the winning cup, this has been his five tour title gains this season. The Dell Technologies Championship was held in Massachusetts and Justin bagged the top title. While he continues to play and vie for the position of PGA Tour Player of the year there are more upcoming tournaments on the PGA Tour this year. Being a player under the age of 25, he has already won five times in the PGA Tour season.

While Thomas finished in the position in 17 under, Jordan Spieth gained second position at 14 under while Marc Leishman finished third. Phil Mickelson finished in the sixth position with a tie at 11-under. Thomas adds this title to four others that he has gained this year, which is SBS Tournament of Champions, CIMB Classic, Sony Open that was held in Hawaii and the PGA championship.

Leishman and Thomas were tied for the leading position as they entered the final round; each of the players gained 12-under as they played 54 holes. Paul Casey was eligible for the ,a href=”http://www.pga.com/news/golf-leaderboard/pga-tour-leaderboard”>third position while Adam Hadwin, Jordan Spieth and Grayson Murray were tied at 10-under position.

Leishman was in the lead in the championship on Sunday where he led by two points. The final prize was a ten million amount and the tournament was showcased on Golf Channel as well as on NBC. Defending champion for the tournament was Rory McIlroy. Dustin Johnson had won last week at the Northern Trust. For those who are fans of the golf game and tournaments, there are several other tournaments lined up and hence, the remaining part of the summer and the rest of the year will not prove boring at all.


Golf legend Tiger Woods said his back was still giving him issues despite having his fourth surgery in three years.

The back spasms forced him to miss the Dubai Desert Classic. The golf world expected him back in weeks but it has dragged to several months and now it seems the fight against pain is not ending anytime soon.

He is not expected to achieve much all year if he miraculously gets to feature. Since 2014, the former champion has struggled to get action, spending more time on the sidelines. There was a glimmer of hope that he would get back some form but alas the 41-year old relapsed to fighting pain.

The player’s agent Mark Steinberg claimed the surgery is “to eliminate the bad bays.” The player’s website had a quote from him which reads: “The surgery went well, and I’m optimistic this will relieve my back spasms and pain. When healed, I look forward to getting back to a normal life, playing with my kids, competing in professional golf and living without the pain I have been battling so long.”

Should Tiger Woods not call time on his career and focus on getting back to a healthy lifestyle? The major no. 15 would most likely never come and age is not on his side. All the progresses he seemed to have made a few months back seem to have eroded, and the ambitious plans he had gone.

Steinberg kept alluding to Woods’ desire for a healthy and pain-free life. His body had ached for a long time and while he wants to exit on a good note, it is better to get his priorities straight. The agent seems to be doing a good job of keeping Woods relevant but the fighter might be long gone.

Angel Cabrera At Houston Open

The Houston Open sees Angel Cabrera finishing the final with a successful hone in one.

His fans have been delighted to see him finish the Shell Houston Open in great style. He will now be eligible to move to Masters tournament. As his performance in Shell Houston Open was a good one, he will now proceed with full confidence.

Many know him as the Augusta champion of 2009 though he does continue to perform admirably in other tournaments as well. On Sunday his performance saw him posting a score of two under 70. This will aid in his preparations to take on the opening Major tournament of the year. The beginning was rocky for him as there was bad weather predicted initially.

The final round was then played in split tees. He then reached Cabrera at level par before he cancelled the 20 foot gain. The best that he did was at the final hole.

Here the hole was located at 220 yards and he had to perform the shot with a three iron in weather conditions that were windy and wet. His tee shot made through the greens after which they hopped and rolled into the center of the cup. This was his second win for the PGA Tour of the season.

Hailing from Argentina, the professional golfer, born in 1969, has played both PGA and the European Tours. Known by his nickname El Pato which stands for duck and refers to his unique gait, he has gained major championship trophies two times, at the Masters in 2009 and US Open in 2007. Many of his fans will be looking forward to excellent performances from him further more this year as he has had a successful start. Having come from a humble background, he is definitely driven to perform on the greens.


After he had briefly pulled within two shots of the lead, it was clear early that there would be a struggle.

And instead of being in a position to attack pins, Woods was struggling for pars. On a par 5, he made double bogey twice, starting at N0. 6 where he blasted out of the sandy are, thus moving off to the back side of a double green, which forced him to chip off the putting surface.

However, he was able to play three straight birdies to play the front nine in even par.

Meanwhile, Matsuyama was already too far ahead in the tournament, which means Woods was never going to win it. But it provided a chance for the American super star to post a decent number, thus taking more positives into what could be a two month off season.

Instead, Woods went on to add two more double bogeys and shot 40 on the back nine. His third double bogey of the week was made on the 18th hole, without the need to even go into the water.

He had to take a penalty drop to take out his ball after his tee shot landed in a thick palmetto bush. And lucky him, his drop in the sandy waste area just settled right in front of the nub of another bush.

He however was able to get that back into the fairway, then going over green and taking two putts from there to ensure his 6.

“What he did here showed that he’s certainly up for the task and his game is there. He’s ready to go,”

“Even with Tiger, every time we set expectations, he exceeds them.” Jordan Spieth said.

Having not played since August 2015, he dropped down to 898 in the world rating and he has begun the slow climb up towards the top.

Adam Scott Fight Back Third Day

Once the number one golfer, Adam Scott made everybody at a WGC HSBC event that is happening in China, what makes him one of the best players in the world?

Adam played wonderfully on day 3 of the championship with birdies and par. After having poor performance on day 2 of the championship, day three was stunning for Scott. On day two the player suffered a disastrous meltdown by scoring 8 over par 80. However, on day three, he played well and showed to the world why he was the number one golfer in the world in 2013.

On the third day, the player performed reasonably. His score on the third day was 18 strokes off the lead, on 149 at the halfway mark; Scott was 5-over-par. After this performance, Scott made his fans to cheer once again. Though still behind Hideki Matsuyama outright leader of Japan.

Australian another golfer Scott Hend was in the best place scoring round of two even-parts after 144.

Teeing off 10th hole, the payer was stuck with something that seems neutral with 3 straight pars. An action that made him to think things coming back is his 13 and 14 birdies that came back to back. He further gained score at 16 and 18.

The day three was good for Scott but not for all players. Matt Millar from Canberra struggled with two-over-seventy four. It dropped him to T62 and 5-over. Another Australian player Nathan Holman too struggled on third day of the championship. His fight was seventy five-fifteen over. This score brought him just above the player Jimmy Walker.

Presently, Matsuyama is on top of the scoreboard and continuously impressing people with his performance. He maintained 68 boggy free shots. Scott is just 14 strokes behind this player and the player is still less than Stellar another player of the championship.

Scott Mentally Prepared For US PGA

The Australian golfer Adam Scott is all set to claim his second major PGA title in the forthcoming New Jersey PGA championship.

He looks quite relaxed and believes that breaking free from the mental shackles will help him in improving the chances of winning the PGA championship at the Baltusrol Golf Club.

The Queenslander has not won any back to back titles since February and March this year. He is currently on a 21 month loss streak on the PGA sector. Scott said that he was entering the Baltusrol PGA championship in a completely different frame of mind which he believes could land him the Majors title.

Scott felt that he had played better in the last two majors, but one poor round meant that he was left in the middle of the title race. He is entering this PGA championship with a belief that he will be playing really well and there is no way tension would come in his way. He looks very calm and composed in the build up to the main event and feels that his swing is getting better with every practice.

The Queensland golfer says that he is a good mindset and feels relaxed like he was at the start of the year. He is looking to let go the recent past and will take the challenges as and when it happens. If Scott wins this PGA championship trophy, he will become a top contender for the US Tour Player of the Year award.

Defending champion and fellow countryman Jason Day has so far won three majors and could give Scott a good run for his money. Scott feels that the fair course laid out for the championship will suit his game play and he is looking forward for a good momentum from this major to get into the forthcoming FedEx cup events.

Adam Scott heaps praise on Kiwi caddy Steve Williams

Adam Scott, the Aussie golf star, has spoken about his Kiwi caddie Steve Williams and his scopes to win at the Masters.

Adam emphasized the plan to have Steve at his shoulder was preset and designed to utilized the Kiwi’s grad knowledge of crafty Augusta National layout. Steve was Adam’s caddy when he won the Mastersin 2013, which is his only major success.

Speaking to a leading UK based newspaper Adam Scott told that his experience is invaluable. He could not remember if any caddy has won as much as he has around there. Therefore, he has an kinship with the course from his side of things and their results in the major championships since Steve began working for him in the year 2011 have been great if you compare them to his results in major championships before that point.

He added that Steve would not be the regulate in everything he does in his golf game but he is certainly had a great positive impact. Even returning after 9 months off the bag previous year at the US Open, his form was quite average leading into that and they got into contention and they ended up finishing 4th with a great Sunday round.

He is looking for that same type of magic out of him this week, just like he ask out of David Clark any week he is caddying and myself every week he is playing.

Scott Defends His Return To Long Putter

Amidst huge speculations about his return to long putter after taking to a shorter one for a while, Adam Scott speaks up in defence of his change of putters.

Scott, who was always seen with long putter, surprised everyone when he took to short putter for 3 weeks & created great stir in the golf world as he reunited with his usual longer putter- at the prestigious Augusta National.

The Australian golfer stressed the Masters championship is really crucial for him and hence he wants to play with something that he is most comfortable with- and do not wish to take up any experimentation at such a top-end championship.

His stint with short putter at Florida swing, produced mixed results and hence the golfer is not willing to take any risk this time.

The very anchored stroke meant for long putter, would be reportedly outlawed the next year. However, the Aussie star admitted that he would still stay loyal to the long putter for some time now.

“It seems sensible for me”, noted Scott while speaking in defence of getting back to long putter once again.
“I am not here for some experimentation or to find out what happens- rather I am here to have my job done.”

“It seems that odds are mostly on favor with longer putter & it is more so since I have been with it since the last 4 years.

“It is a process. I have got time to change. If one thinks that the past few weeks were an experiment, it is nice to understand that I have learned so many things regarding whatever I was into- what I tend to think about & my principles regarding putting.”

“I certainly feel that I would be playing with longer putter.”

Adam Scott rues rustiness for failed WGC bid

Former world number one Adam Scott has said that competitive rust might have cost him another title as American golfer Dustin Johnson stamped his authority on the rest of the pack as he marked his return to professional golf with a massive victory at the World Golf Championship in Miami.

The Aussie golfer started the final round of the event eight shots behind the lead but threatened to make a late dash for the title when he had halved the deficit by the end of nine shots.

However, an 11th hole bogey messed up whatever strategy he might have had, forcing the 34 year old to go on the attack on a course that is difficult to manoeuvre.

That decision backfired greatly on the Queensland ace as he finished in fourth place eventually, a good five shots behind Johnson. This was the first tournament that Adam Scott has played since playing at the Australian Masters in December last year, taking an extended break at the end of the season.
He said that he tried to challenge the course a bit after hitting a bogey on the 11th. He added that in hindsight, he feels that he didn’t need to do it but he wanted to be aggressive and feels that he scrambled much of the rest of his game around.

According to Adam Scott, lack of competition might have played a part in him not being able to get over the line. He added that it is obvious that one needs a few shots under his belt on Tour and it is quite different from hitting balls around the course with friends. He also accepted that still has a lot of work to do if he wants to perform well at the Masters tournament, which tees off in Augusta next month.

Adam Scott wants Olympic Games to remain for amateurs

Golf is all set to make its much awaited return to the Olympic Games in the summer of 2016 when the greatest show on Earth hits Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, but if it were up to him, former world number one Adam Scott would ensure only amateurs played in the event.

The Aussie golfer who is currently ranked at number 3 in the world doesn’t want the integrity of the Olympic Games to be diluted by the presence of professional golfers. Several well known sports columnists in Australia have voiced their opinion on the game’s professionals playing in the Olympic Games and that shouldn’t be the case. And now, Scott has come out in support of them.

Scott said that the Olympic Games was and should always for amateurs. Speaking at an event organised by the Australian PGA, the two time major winner said that people already get to watch the professional golfers for 45 of the 52 weeks in a calendar year.

Adam Scott added that these people have grown tired of seeing the same old faces week in and week out and if the golfing fraternity is serious about making the game popular and growing it into more territories, then they should ensure that only amateur golfers take part in the Olympic Games.

He however did mention that he does want to participate in the Games when they kick off in 2016; he said that his focus is mainly on other things, especially the four major tournaments of the year.

According to Adam Scott, the Games in Rio is not something he has given a lot of thought about but it definitely is something that he would love to be a part of, adding that his focus remains on the four majors and that will not change.
