- Kuchar Conquers
Matt Kuchar made birdies when it mattered to win THE PLAYERS. Kuchar shot a steady final round 70 to win for the 4th time on the PGA TOUR and first time since 2010. With the win, he rises to number 5 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
- Just Short
Rickie Fowler's bid for back-to-back PGA TOUR wins ended two shots short. He birdied 16 and 17 but missed a 7-foot birdie attempt at 18 that would have put some pressure on Kuchar. Fowler tied for 2nd with Zach Johnson, Martin Laird and Ben Curtis.
- Final Round Fury
Even thru 9 holes, World #2 Luke Donald put on a show with 6 birdies in 8 holes on the Back 9 to rise all the way up to a 6th place finish. Despite the fantastic finish, he narrowly missed out on a chance to regain World #1.
- Casey's Concern
Paul Casey withdrew from this week's Volvo World Match Play with a right shoulder injury. Remember, he dislocated the shoulder during a snowboarding accident over the holidays. Robert Karlsson takes his spot in the field.
