The Mad Scientist, Bryson DeChambeau, won the second leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs, the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston, playing his Cobra King Driver, Woods, Irons and Wedges and the Bridgestone TOUR BX ball.

On the Tour Champions, Scott McCarron won the Shaw Charity Classic at Canyon Meadows G & CC in Calgary, Canada.
Vanderbilt graduate Marina Alex rallied on Sunday before Labor Day to win her first LPGA event, the Cambria Portland Classic at Columbia Edgewater CC in Oregon. She is only the fourth US player to win after 25 events and first since Annie Park won in June.

New-Englander Keegan Bradley won the BMW Championship in a playoff versus Justin Rose at the rain-soaked Aronimonk Golf Club near Philadelphia, the home of the SuperBowl Champion Eagles. It was Keegan’s fourth Tour win but first in six years after the anchored putter ruling.Matthew Fitzpatrick defended his 2017 title at the Omega European Masters at the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in Switzerland. Both Keegan & Matthew played a Taylor Made M2 Driver, but that is where it ends. The winners had a mix of club brands in their bags which seems to be the norm lately.

We have another American, Angela Stanford, winning the 5th major of the LPGA, the Evian Championship, at L’Evian Resort golf club on beautiful Lake Geneva, France. It was the first major win for the 40 year old Stanford, a Texas Christian graduate who also had not won in six years. Well done Angela! The Americans are making  a comeback!

Englishman Paul Broadhurst won the inaugural Tour Champions Ally Challenge at Warwick Hills CC in Grand Blanc, Michigan for his third win this year.

Steve Stricker won the Sanford International inaugural tournament at Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for his third win this year on the TOUR Champions.
Outside Jacksonville, Florida, The Web.com Tour concluded its race to the PGA TOUR with Dennis McCarthy winning the final championship at the Erik Larsen designed Atlantic Beach Country Club.

Tiger is officially back and that is good for GOLF. He captured his 80th win by winning the TOUR Championship at East Lake in Atlanta, while Justin Rose took home the coveted FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus. Congratulations to both Tiger and Justin. The walk up 18 with crowds swarming Tiger reminded me of a bygone era when Arnie’s Army would surround Arnold with adoration. What a great 4 days of golf. Tiger played his TaylorMade M3 driver, woods, irons and wedges along with the Bridgestone BXS ball and his trusted Scotty Cameron putter.

Enjoy the Dog Days of Summer but stay hydrated while playing.
