ICYMI/Weekend Recap

Crowne Plaza Invitational

Boo Weekley (-14/266) captured first title in 5 years at the Crowne Plaza Invitational, as he got hot in the final round shooting a 4-under 66, which included six birdies and two bogeys. Third round leader Matt Kuchar (-13/267) had opportunities to maintain, and recover, the tournament lead, but was unable to capitalize as he missed makeable birdie opportunities, including one at 17 that would have put him one back with one to play. Defending champion Zach Johnson (-12/268) was the early club-house leader, as he also shot a 4-under 66 to finish alone in third place.

During a long backup at the turn on Saturday’s third round, Jeff Overton was informed by a rules official that he could spend the time practicing putting or chipping. After parring 10 and teeing off on 11, keeping him six shots off the lead at 4-under, another rules official notified him that he was DQ’d for using an artificial putting aid, violating Rule 14-3/10.3: “Use of rod during round for alignment or as swing aid.” Tough break when you’re told by a rules official you can do something, but it’s up to him to know that kind of rule.

74th Senior PGA Championship

Kenny Perry had a chance to clinch his first major on the Champions tour as he held a 2-shot lead heading into the final round. The 14-time winner on the PGA Tour had a difficult Sunday, posting a 1-over 72 as several other players had solid rounds shooting well under par, including champion Kohki Idoki (-11, 273) who shot a 6-under 65. Mark O’Meara (-8/276) also shot a 65 to move up 11 spots finishing alone in 4th place. The low round of the day belonged to Canadian Jim Rutledge, who shot a 7-under 64, moving up 30 spots to finish in a tie for 6th. This is the first Champions Tour and major victory for Idoki, who has been one of the more consistent players on the Japan tour throughout his career.

BMW PGA Championship

At age 20, Matteo Manassero became the youngest BMW PGA Champion in its 58-year history. Manassero defeated Marc Warren and Simon Khan in a four-hole playoff to win the event with a final score of 10-under/278. With the win, Manassero qualifies for next month’s US Open.
