COLUMBUS, Ohio – With a clutch up-and-down on the 72nd hole, Curtis Luck outlasted the field to win the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, finishing the week at 11-under 273. Theo Humphrey, Taylor Montgomery and Cameron Young finished in a tie for second at 10-under 274.

“Yeah, it’s actually a really deep breath of relief,” Luck said after the win. “Golf’s really tough. It’s probably not gone 100 percent to plan with the way I wanted to when I turned pro, but yeah, I’ve just stuck with it and I’m still working hard. Obviously, to get a win out here is massive because not only does it give me status for the next couple years out here on the Korn Ferry Tour, it just shows that I’m able to compete, which is nice.”

Luck, who held the 36- and 54-hole leads at The Ohio State University Golf Club’s Scarlet Course, emerged victorious from a crowded leaderboard that saw five players tied for the lead at one point on Sunday.

Entering the final round with a one-stroke advantage, Luck couldn’t seem to find his rhythm on the front nine. After seven consecutive pars, he dropped a shot at the par-3 eighth to fall back to 10-under. On No. 11, he dropped another shot with his second bogey of the day and fell off the top of a crowded leaderboard.

“Yeah, it was a tough day from start to finish,” he said. “Unfortunately, I made a couple of bogeys, but I just rolled with them and dug deep to finish.”

Following pars on Nos. 12-14, Luck made his charge back up the leaderboard with a birdie on No. 15. At the par-4 16th, he drained a lengthy birdie attempt to regain the solo-lead at 11-under.

The drama would unfold on No. 18 as Luck found himself one stroke ahead of playing partner Cameron Young on the tee box. Theo Humphrey and Taylor Montgomery had each posted the clubhouse lead at 10-under 274.

Luck’s drive on the 18th hit off a tree but still managed to find the fairway. Young, who began the day one stroke off the lead, took an aggressive line, leaving himself a short pitch shot into the 439-yard par-4.

Luck’s approach missed the green right and found the greenside bunker leaving him a difficult up-and-down. From just short of the green, Young stuck his second shot inside 7-feet leaving him a great look for birdie.

After a difficult bunker shot, Luck faced a 7-foot par putt to post 11-under for the week but was still outside Young’s birdie attempt. As he had done all week, the Australian drained the par attempt, leaving Young with a chance to force a playoff. Despite his best effort, Young’s putt slid past the hole and secured Luck the win.

“Yeah, it was an intense hole,” Luck said of No. 18. “I thought I hit a good tee shot down there and just clipped one of those trees and shot it out backwards into the fairway. And I just, I hit a poor iron shot. I wasn’t trying to do anything special, just middle of the green and hit a poor iron shot.

“Fortunately, yeah, I made a wicked up‑and‑down and put the pressure back on Cam, who as I said, I’m certain that if I missed, with how good a player Cam is, he would have rolled that thing straight in and shut us all out.”

With the victory, Luck moved to 18th on the points list. He also put himself in great position to secure one of the five spots in the 2020 U.S. Open awarded at the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Series.

Next week, the Tour travels to Evansville, Indiana, for the final event of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Series, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance.

Crew SC takes to the Big Apple for match against NY City FC tonight

 

Crew SC clashes against New York City FC on FOX Sports Ohio

 

COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC travels to face New York City FC at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, Monday, August 24 at 7:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports Ohio and the FOX Sports GO App, featuring Neil Sika, Jordan Angeli and Brett Hiltbrand on the call. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. ET. Tomorrow’s match also airs locally on the radio in English on 97.1 The Fan and streaming online via “Listen Live” at 971TheFan.com, featuring Chris Doran broadcasting the contest. The club’s official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone.

Is Week 7 too early for a must-win game? It feels that way for New York City FC, who are desperate to reverse course against the red-hot Columbus Crew SC at Red Bull Arena Monday night.

NYCFC have lost five of their first six league games, with four of those defeats via a 1-0 scoreline. That includes the latest chapter of the Hudson River Derby, although the goal they conceded was hotly contested. Conversely, Crew SC picked up where they left off in Orlando with a convincing 3-0 victory over Chicago Fire FC in their regular season restart. One of three undefeated teams remaining this season, Caleb Porter’s squad has a goal differential of +11 and have conceded just once.

NYCFC have enjoyed a distinct home field advantage through the years, but the club were forced to move their home games in Phase 1 from Yankee Stadium to Red Bull Arena due to the New York Yankees congested schedule in MLB’s restart.

This is the second meeting this year, with Crew SC winning 1-0 at MAPFRE Stadium March 1. Lucas Zelarayan scored the lone goal against 10-man NYCFC, which saw Maxime Chanot sent off in the third minute for DOGSO.

New York City FC

The decisive moment against the Red Bulls came when Sean Johnson bobbled Kyle Duncan’s shot, chasing it back toward his goal and pouncing on the ball. Following Video Review referee Allen Chapman ruled the entire goal had crossed the line, a ruling NYCFC players and staff disagreed with.

But coach Ronny Deila said that goal was coming, with NYCFC abandoning the game plan in the second half. Now, it’s gut-check time for a team largely unchanged from the one that finished atop the east a year ago. The question is will the influential Maxi Moralez be back from a nagging calf injury?

“That’s something we have to work ourselves out of. It’s not a quick solution,” Deila said. “Everybody, including myself, has to really dig deep and find that strength and that belief and that power that makes you come out to the pitch and bounce back. That’s what we’re going to do now on Monday.”

Columbus Crew SC

There’s arguably not a better, more complete team in Major League Soccer through six weeks than Columbus Crew SC. Porter has rotated his lineup, he’s dealt with injuries and yet, to this point, there’s no stopping this train.

Pure class at the MLS is Back Tournament, Crew SC showed no rust in their restart with a comprehensive 3-0 win over the Chicago Fire. Darlington Nagbe, known for his defensive work in the middle of the park, scored what could be the Goal of the Year in the win, a thunderous volley from long range.

“I think these kinds of games actually show a different side of our character,” center back Jonathan Mensah said. “We have a strong team, and we always find a way to win. We’re creating a culture that we do whatever we can to win games.”
