New Faces Emerge from PGA Championship
The PGA Championship concluded last week and ushered in a changing of the guard.
Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Rory McElroy and Rickie Fowler are deemed the new faces of the golfing world with their wins at golf’s elite championship games.
We at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club take pride in following the PGA Championship and the top competitors who lead the pack.
Jason Day grabbed the top title at the championship with some early and spectacular shots. He made three long birdie putts in the last nine holes at Plainfield and a birdie on the last hole giving him an 8-under-par 62 for a six-point win over Henrik Stenson, according to the Washington Times.
Closing the weekend with a 63-62 and 19-under 261, Day’s win puts him at the top of the FedEx Cup standings, which gives him a shot at the $10 million Tour Championship bonus.
The victories keep Day at No. 3 in the world.
Day, Spieth and Mcllroy all have a chance to rise to No. 1 at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, according to news reports.
“It’s been a special summer for me, and it’s not over,” Day said. “To be able to play the way I did over the weekend is fantastic.”
Henrik Stenson fell two shots short despite valiant efforts with birdies on the 13th and 14th holes at the PGA.
Spieth’s two wins at the Masters and U.S. Open – and four wins this year on this year’s PGA Tour – tie him with Day.
