Dueling winners an unsatisfying finish

ATLANTA (AP) Xander Schauffele won the tournament. Justin Thomas won the $10 million.

There was plenty of drama but no satisfaction.

From start to finish, Thomas was best

ATLANTA (AP) Justin Thomas had an inkling back in January that this season might be something special.

More than winning the Sony Open for a sweep of Hawaii and his third victory in five starts, it was how he won. Thomas opened with a 59 and never let up until he set the PGA Tour's record for lowest 72-hole score and won by seven shots. Instead of trying to protect a lead, he left everyone in his wake. Read More...

Lindheim wins event in playoff

BEACHWOOD, Ohio (AP) Nicholas Lindheim made a downhill, 35-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole after bogeying the final two holes in regulation and won the DAP Championship on Sunday to regain his PGA Tour card.

Lindheim, who lost in a playoff in this Tour Finals event last year, hit every green in regulation on the front nine and held the lead from the third hole on. But he missed his tee shot well left on the par-4 18th at Canterbury Golf Club, punched out and failed to get up and down. He shot a 1-over 71 to join Rob Oppenheim (67) and Chesson Hadley (69) in the playoff. Read More...

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) Nick Price got the celebration going. He won the second of 12 singles matches when David Duval conceded his short par putt on the 17th hole at Royal Melbourne, the decisive point for the International team to win the Presidents Cup.

That was 1998.
