Bryson takes a commanding FedEx Cup lead!

Today is September 4th, 2018 and we present Bryson DeChambeau takes Commanding Lead in The FedEx Cup! Tuesday/Monday rewind #104.  A golf Video Blog with Mel Sole, Director of Instruction and Master Professional at the Mel Sole Golf School, headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.

Bryson takes a commanding FedEx Cup lead!

Bryson DeChambeau played like a true champion and solidified himself in the Ryder Cup Captain’s picks! With a final round of 67 in the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston, MA, he is well placed in the FedEx Cup playoffs to take it all!.

Leading from the very start (as he had last week) he played his very scientific game.  And proved the critics wrong.  There is a place in golf for science!

Bryson goes into the final two playoff events knowing that no matter what happens next week, he will still have the lead as he heads to Atlanta for the Tour Championship.

The other player who I feel locked in his Ryder Cup spot was Phil Mickelson.  His final round 63 was his way of showing captain Jim Furyk he is ready and able to represent the USA against Europe in Paris, France in a few weeks! 

So my 3 picks for tomorrow are Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.  The fourth and final pick on Thursday will be a headache for Captain Furyk and I do not want to be in his shoes.  Good luck to all the contenders!

European Tour:

The British are coming, The British are coming!  That famous cry by Paul Revere was in full force in Aarhus, Denmark at the Silkeborg Ry GC.  There was a 4-way tie at the top and the end of regulation by four players from England.  Lee Westwood, Jonathan Thompson, Steven Brown and eventual winner, Matt Wallace.  What an amazing finish Wallace had.  Birdying 4 of the last 5 and then birdying the 18th in the 1st hole of the playoff to eliminate Westwood and Thompson.  Then he took Brown down the 18th once again and made another birdie (to make it 3 in a row on 18) to take a well-deserved title.  Making a strong bid for a Captains pick for the upcoming Ryder Cup, Wallace has won 4 tournaments, 3 on the European Tour, in the last 18 months.

My fellow South African Erik van Rooyen shot a final round of 65 that was just 1 shot short of the playoff.

LPGA Tour:

Marina Alex of the USA won her first LPGA title at the LPGA Cambia Portland Classic.  Playing at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club, in Portland, OR, she had an amazing 65 in the final round.  She beat leader England’s Georgia Hall by 4.  Considering that Hall was leading by 6 at the start of the round, that is a 10 shot swing, as Hall slumped to a 75!  Nobody else came close to shooting 65 in the field.  Congratulations on an amazing round.  Another two back was Ayako Uehara of Japan.

PGA Champions Tour:

Scott McCarron successfully defended his title in the Shaw Charity Classic at Canyon Meadows in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  After a text from his father the night before where he had suggested a small change in ball position might help, it was just what he was looking for.  Well, that and an ace on the 14th hole, sealed the deal.  Scott won by 1 over Scott Parel, Joe Durant and Kirk Triplett.

European Tour: Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre GC in Crans Montana, Switzerland.
