Kevin Chappell wins first PGA Tour title with 72nd-hole birdie
After six second-place finishes, rising into the 30 in the world and easily holding the mantle as the Best Player Without a PGA Tour Win, Kevin Chappell broke through for his first victory on Sunday at the Valero Texas Open ? in his 180th-career start. Chappell won in dramatic fashion over Brooks Koepka, who closed at TPC San Antonio?s AT&T Oaks Course with a 7-under 65 to draw even on the final hole. The ball went in the left side of the hole, giving Chappell the win and the opportunity to release years of frustration of coming up just shy.
Thompson needs to tell her side of ANA incident
Lexi Thompson?s agent asked the LPGA in strong terms for a ?true and transparent accounting? of the details of the viewer?s intervention that impacted the outcome of the ANA Inspiration three weeks ago. When Thompson meets the media for the first time since a four-shot penalty derailed her chance at winning a second major championship, there will be an accounting due there, too. While LPGA players may be ?up in arms? over yet another TV viewer?s intervention, as a prominent major champion told last week, you aren?t hearing players step up to defend the way Thompson marked her ball. In fact, there has been curious silence on that front from the LPGA player ranks, even among players asked directly about it at the Lotte Championship the week after the ANA.

He even got to get the match underway. So, basically: Yea, life is pretty good for Sergio Garcia right now.

Wiesberger edges Fleetwood in Shenzhen playoff
Bernd Wiesberger held off a hard-charging Tommy Fleetwood to win the European Tour's Shenzhen International in China. Wiesberger began the final round with a three-shot lead, but Fleetwood caught up with a final-round 63 that included birdies on four of his final six holes. Wiesberger parred each of his last 11 holes in regulation, and then managed to birdie the first playoff hole to clinch the win. Wiesberger entered the week ranked No. 43 in the world, and this marks his first European Tour win since the 2015 Open de France. It also continues a remarkable run of consistency as he has racked up eight worldwide top-5 finishes since his last missed cut at the PGA Championship in July. "I've had

South Carolina?s Dambaugh is SEC golf champion
It?s been quite a year for South Carolina senior golfer Katelyn Dambaugh. It got better this weekend, as she took medalist honors at the SEC Championship in Hoover, Alabama with a -6 on Sunday. Dambaugh ended up beating Georgia?s Harang Lee by a stroke among individual finishers in this year?s event as she ended with a 12-under 204 for the championship. Not only did Dambaugh win the event, she did it in style: her 12-under score is the lowest ever in the SEC Championship and a individual program record in any 54-hole event - a record she set in October in Charleston?s Cougar Classic. As the top finisher in the conference, she automatically qualifies for one of four NCAA Regional events to be
