Homa comes full circle and wins Wells Fargo Championship

Homa comes full circle and wins Wells Fargo Championship Two years after Max Homa played only one Sunday in an entire PGA Tour season, he showed his mettle at Quail Hollow by closing with a 4-under 67 to pull away from the field and win the Wells Fargo Championship. Homa won by three shots over Joel Dahmen and qualified for the PGA Championship in two weeks at Bethpage Black and the Masters next April.

The 2019 Masters is in the books. The week at Augusta yielded plenty of winners and losers . These were the most notable among them. We know about the three major wins since the 2017 U.S. Open. But going back to the 2014 PGA Championship Masters, Koepka has finished outside of the top-20

The 2019 PGA Championship was the 101st edition of the PGA Championship , and the second of golf's four major championships in 2019

The 2019 PGA Championship is complete. As was the case in 2018, Brooks Koepka came out victorious.

With his win, Koepka now has four major wins in less than two years. He’s also the No. 1 ranked player in the world. As such, he is clearly the week’s top winner. But he’s not the only man who should be happy with his week. Dustin Johnson did a lot to make Koepka earn his victory down the stretch. Rory McIlroy didn’t play well at times. Still, he managed to post a respectable week.

Jordan Spieth, meanwhile, had a decent finish. But he let a potential opportunity to contend go by the wayside. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm had a short week at Bethpage Black, but might have saved themselves from an annoying weekend.

Dover winners and losers

Dover winners and losers Martin Truex Jr. left Dover on top but he wasn't the only one who had reason to celebrate there.

Here’s a summary of the key winners and losers from the event. The announcement just prior to the start of the event has the PGA Championship moving in 2019 to May. The PGA Tour benefits in having its Players Championship go back to its original March date, thus allowing the Tour to revamp

The 2019 PGA Tour is the 104th season of the PGA Tour, and the 52nd since separating from the PGA of America. The season began on October 4, 2018.

As we look back at the season’s second major, these were the biggest winners and losers from the 2019 PGA Championship.

Winner: Brooks Koepka keeps owning the majors

Koepka opened with a 63 and backed that up with a 65. His game wasn’t quite as sharp over the weekend — especially for part of Sunday’s back nine. But those two rounds gave him the cushion needed to win. Kopeka joins Tiger as the only players to repeat as PGA Champ in the strokeplay era. That, coupled with his U.S. Open wins in 2017 and 2018, makes Koepka the only man to ever hold back-to-back titles at two different majors simultaneously. Prior to the tournament, Koepka opined that majors were easier to win than regular tournaments. Given his results, that’s hard to argue.

Loser: Tiger Woods sent packing on Friday

The 2012 PGA Championship ended another major season, but with a ton of questions before the tour winds down. Who won this week at Kiawah Island and who will look back regrettably? SportsLine simulated the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship 10,000 times and came up with some

The 2019 PGA Championship will be the 101st playing of the tournament, which first started in 1916. The 2019 Championship will establish a new place within golf’s major championship rotation becoming the second of four annual events and moving from August to May.

Tiger’s week featured a lot of one step forward, two steps back. Thursday did feature three birdies and an eagle. Unfortunately, those were more than offset by three bogeys and two doubles. On Friday, a birdie on 13 put him in a position to at least make the cut. But a bogey on 14 (and four subsequent pars coming in) put an end to that. Tiger following up his Masters win was one of the week’s major talking points. His history at Bethpage Black made us feel really good about his chances at contending. It just didn’t go well.

Winner: Dustin Johnson makes it interesting

For so much of Sunday, the final round looked like nothing more than a victory lap for Koepka. Then, DJ made it interesting. He remained solid for much of the round. Then, when he birdied 15, Johnson was briefly only one back. DJ did finish poorly and by the end, Koepka won with a two-shot cushion. But Johnson did a lot to make Sunday more interesting than it had any right being. In doing so, he finished in second place and is now the eighth golfer in history to finish as the runner-up in all four majors.

Thomas (right wrist) cleared to begin chipping, putting after MRI

Thomas (right wrist) cleared to begin chipping, putting after MRI After withdrawing from this year's PGA Championship due to a nagging right-wrist injury, Justin Thomas remained in the metropolitan area for an MRI, according to Golf Channel's Tim Rosaforte. The 2017 PGA Champion also received consultation with a hand specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery and went through two-a-day rehab sessions.

Loser: Jordan Spieth can’t take advantage of moving-day opportunity

Spieth came into Saturday in second place, seven strokes behind Koepka. While Koepka didn’t have a bad day, an even-par 70 did give Spieth a chance to cut into his lead. Instead, Spieth lost ground to Koepka, shooting a 72. And while Saturday didn’t exactly offer a barrage of birdies, we did see two 67s and five 68s. If Spieth had done that, he might have been more of a factor on Sunday. A T3 is not a terrible finish at all. But he’ll look back on Saturday with some disappointment.

Winner: Rory McIlroy grinds his way to a solid finish

McIlroy was seven-over when he turned on Friday, three off of what the eventual cutline was. Then, things changed. He was four-under over his second nine that day and fired consecutive 69s over the weekend to finish T8. Now, this is important from a couple of perspectives. First, the difference between that and a missed cut is more than $260,000. But beyond the money, we tend to marvel about what golfers like McIlroy do when they’re firing all all cylinders. McIlroy’s A-game clearly didn’t make the trip to Bethpage. Despite that, he grinded out a respectable finish.

Loser: Jon Rahm can’t earn a weekend tee time

Aside from providing one of the week’s funniest moments, Rahm’s 2019 PGA Championship was forgettable. An even-par 70 on Thursday put him well behind the lead. Still, Rahm was in position to make the cut and maybe even be a factor over the weekend. Then, Friday happened. Rahm started on the back nine and bogeyed 12, 13, 15, 16, and 17. He did birdie the first two holes after the turn, but two more bogeys put him below the cut. Rahm came into the week in good form and his game seemed suited for Bethpage Black. But his PGA Championship was a dud.

Winner: Matt Wallace introduces himself to golf world

Wallace had three runner-up finishes in 2019 coming into the week. So, he was in good form. But given that he had made the cut in only one major, it was hard to take him too seriously. He quickly changed that. Wallace opened with a 69 and backed it up with a 67 to enter the weekend at four-under. Saturday and especially Sunday went a little more challenging. But Wallace still finished T3 and made $526,625. For a guy who wasn’t terribly well known coming into the 2019 PGA Championship, we’d call that a heck of a week.

Loser: Bethpage overtaken by too many immature fans

If you’re a golf fan in New York, the galleries at Bethpage did you no favors. First of all, screaming “mashed potatoes” and “Baba Booey” has never been terribly funny. But we’ve heard them so often over the years that now that they’ve moved from immature to boring. Even worse, as the championship moved to its conclusion, too many fans were overcome by their desire to be heard. As a result, many screamed their corny slogans before golfers even made contact with the ball. Cheering loud is fine. But the fans this week did too much to hijack the event. That can’t stop soon enough.

Raptors roar: Winners and losers from Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
The long-anticipated 2019 NBA Finals between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors tipped off Thursday night in Canada. Coming into the series, Toronto found itself as overwhelming underdogs. Though, Kawhi Leonard and Co. were favored to win the opener at home. From pretty much the start, Toronto played like the better and more hungry team. Pascal Siakam dominated all four quarters. Leonard came through when it counted the most. Meanwhile, the Warriors couldn’t get any secondary scoring behind Stephen Curry. Klay Thompson struggled and was visibly frustrated. Draymond Green found himself in foul trouble.
