Nate Lashley Surprise Winner At Rocket Mortgage

Dustin Johnson tees off during his Friday round at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Sung Hyun Park two-putted for birdie on the par-5 18th to win the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship on Sunday in Rogers, Arkansas, for her second LPGA Tour victory of the season and seventh overall.

The last alternate to win on the PGA TOUR was Vaughn Taylor at the 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. They were flying back from one of his NCAA tournaments.

"There's no feeling like it, really. I gave it up because I thought I'd have opportunities in the future to play as a pro, and if things went well I'd play tons of them", Redman said. "I was just excited to be in the golf tournament really".

Nate Lashley will head into his Sunday round in the final pairing with a six-shot lead in search of his first win on the PGA Tour.

"It's great to be here to watch his dream come true after watching him play in the Dakotas Tour and work his way up to here", said Jeff Peck, one of about a dozen of Lashley's friends at Detroit Golf Club.

Numerous players knew they'd have to go low on the scorecard to be in contention.

On Saturday, he found 10-of-14 fairways, hit 16-of-18 greens on his way to nine birdies and no bogeys. "At some points it's not easy, but it goes through your mind and it's something that's always going to be there".

The only real surprise has been that Trump rolled back the Huawei ban nearly immediately that trade talks with China restarted. China meanwhile agreed to make unspecified new purchases of us farm products and return to the negotiating table.


Outside of their play on the course, many players praised the energy of the crowd during the tournament.

"Nothing's quite sunk in yet, but the fans were just absolutely great, especially today to me, rooting me on".

Lashley would've had to collapse and one of the contenders would've had to have a sensational performance to put the final result in doubt.

"I mean, first year was a huge success here", Fowler said. "It took a lot of years for me to get over my parents' death, for sure. We had a lot of good players here, some of the best players in the world, and I think you're seeing the quality of top to bottom of what the PGA Tour is".

Welcome to the official YouTube channel of the PGA TOUR. "I'm just going to continue that tomorrow and see what happens".

Golf may have been the biggest spectacle for the weekend, but it's hard to miss the impact of a PGA tournament coming to the city of Detroit.

"I think it's awesome", Hainstock said.

"And thinking about them today, I was getting a little emotional".
