Tour rookie Wolff finishes with eagle to win 3M Open by 1

Tour rookie Wolff finishes with eagle to win 3M Open by 1

At 20 years old, Wolff became the ninth-youngest victor in PGA history and the youngest since Jordan Spieth.

He's now one of only three players ever to win an NCAA individual championship and a PGA Tour title in the same year - joining Tiger Woods and Ben Crenshaw - and will collect $1.152 million after Sunday's dramatic victory.

At the 468-yard par-4 second, Gay got on in 3 and missed his bogey putt from 4 feet, finishing with a 3-putt double bogey.

Canada's Adam Hadwin and American Wyndham Clark shared fourth on 199 with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and Americans Charles Howell and Troy Merritt on 200.

"I was really nervous", Wolff said.

Morikawa, 22, is in only his sixth US PGA start.

"I've changed forever, I guess", he said.

"I have a smooth tempo".

Lakers add Green, re-sign Caldwell-Pope, McGee
On Saturday, he added Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins , who will soon be two years removed from a torn Achilles. Green took to Instagram late Friday night to announce he was leaving the Toronto Raptors to join the Lakers.

Danielson, 25, playing on a sponsor's exemption this week, is showing he belongs on the PGA Tour. To do that with all the nerves and trying to get my Tour card, it's pretty special to me.

It was the Spaniard's second victory of 2019, after winning the Zurich Classic team event on the PGA Tour with Ryan Palmer in April, and the fourth victory in two years on the European Tour. This week I just believed in myself.

Wolff sank an 11-foot birdie putt at the third then reeled off six birdies in a row from the fifth through the 10th holes with a longest birdie putt from eight feet at 10. "I knew as soon as I left college that I'm out here with the best players in the world and I'd have to prove myself, and I did that". "But I've been taught to stay in the moment and that's what I did".

The 20-year-old could have been the solo leader but a birdie on the par-three 17th hole moved him back to 15 under, alongside DeChambeau and Morikawa.

Wolff and DeChambeau each birdied the 10th, and they were temporarily tied atop the leaderboard after DeChambeau birdied 13.

World number one Brooks Koepka was at three-under after a 72 to just make the cut but five-time major victor Phil Mickelson and last week's Rocket Mortgage Classic victor Nate Lashley were among whose tournament came to an early end.

On the 596-yard par-5 18th hole, Gay reached the green in 3 and had a three-putt after missing a 2 feet putt he finished with a 3-putt bogey, putting him at 2 under for the round. "I've always had this dream of going to school for four years and coming out here and living what I wanted to do since I was a little kid".
