Graeme McDowell beat Webb Simpson in a playoff at the RBC Heritage to win what he described as his first authentic PGA Tour title, as his only previous win in the U.S. came at the 2010 U.S. Open when he wasn’t a member of golf’s richest circuit.
Sports agency IMG Worldwide Inc. will take over management of the U.S. PGA Tour’s Honda Classic as part of an acquisition of IGP Sports & Entertainment Group and will open a new golf office in North Palm Beach, Florida, the companies said.
Andy Zhang, the youngest golfer on record in U.S. Open history, matched world No. 1 Luke Donald in the first round of the U.S. Open. Unfortunately, they’re 9-over par and in danger of being eliminated today.
Luke Donald became the first British golfer to win the U.S. PGA Tour’s Player of the Year award after topping the money lists on both the American and European circuits, the only player to achieve the feat.
