What a weekend in the world of golf!

A six man playoff at the Wyndham Championship, a new US Amateur showing what he’s got, a low round of 64 at the Shaw Charity Classic and a Veteran LPGA player takes the trophy at the Scottish Open. Read all about these amazing wins.

Kevin Kisner wins record-tying 6-man playoff at Wyndham Championship

Kevin Kisner finally broke his playoff drought to win the Wyndham Championship. He hopes the victory will help him achieve another milestone: representing the United States in the Ryder Cup.

Kisner struck his approach to 3 feet on the 18th hole at Sedgefield and made the putt to win a record-tying six-man playoff on Sunday.

The 37-year-old Kisner, an excellent putter who now has four PGA Tour wins, has never qualified or been selected to represent the U.S. in the biennial matches against Europe. American captain Steve Stricker will make six picks after the Tour Championship, and Kisner says he has at least put himself in the mix.

“To be standing here is pretty sweet,” said Kisner, who had been 0-5 in playoffs.

James Piot rallies on back nine to win U.S. Amateur over Austin Greaser

Even for James Piot, the scrappy Michigan kid who isn’t afraid to set the bar high, his target Sunday in the U.S. Amateur was bordering on audacious.

He was 3 down and running out of time.

Standing on the 10th tee, Piot set a goal of playing the back nine at 4 under par. This was at Oakmont, as fearsome as any course in America, where the greens reputed to be the fastest in the land had been triple cut. More holes were won with pars than birdies.

Piot was up to the task. Starting with a 9-iron to 3 feet for birdie, he won four straight holes to take the lead over Austin Greaser and closed out his stunning rally with a 20-foot par putt that sent him to a 2-and-1 victory.

“It’s the greatest feeling in the world,” Piot said. “As an amateur, it’s the best thing you can do.”

Doug Barron cards third straight 64 to win Shaw Charity Classic by 2 strokes

Doug Barron birdied the final three holes for his third straight 6-under 64 and a two-stroke victory Sunday in the PGA Tour Champions’ Shaw Charity Classic.

The 52-year-old Barron also eagled the par-5 11th in a back-nine 30 at Canyon Meadows. He also won the 2019 Dick’s Sporting Goods Open.

“Winning, losing, unfortunately, there’s only one winner every week and we don’t get it very often,” Barron said “So, when you do it, you should enjoy it. I knew when I made that putt on 18 no one could beat me.”

LPGA veteran Ryann O’Toole wins her first Women’s Scottish Open

Ryann O’Toole won her first LPGA Tour event in 228 starts, closing with a bogey-free 8-under 64 at Dumbarnie Links for a three-shot victory in the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open on Sunday.

After tapping in for a closing par, the 34-year-old O’Toole was showered with champagne and greeted with a kiss by her fiancee, Gina Marra.

“I still feel like I’m in shock and the tears are going to come later when things die down,” O’Toole said. “I’m excited and happy. The hours and grind and heartache this sport brings, the constant travel, for this moment, I hope it only happens again and again.”
