Gary Woodland wins PGA Tour’s Reno-Tahoe Open

(By OCAL, courtesy Clker.com)

Gary Woodland holed a 58-foot chip shot from the rough for one of his four birdies and saved par five times to win the Reno-Tahoe Open in Reno, Nevada.

Jonathan Byrd and Andres Romero tied for second with 35 points and Brendon Steele collected 33 at Montreaux Golf Club.

Woodland, who is 29 years old, attended Washburn University and the University of Kansas, turned pro in 2007 and has four pro wins, only his second on the PGA Tour.

Woodland finished with 44 points in the modified Stableford scoring format.

Stableford is a scoring system used in the sport of golf. Rather than counting the total number of strokes taken, as in stroke play, it involves scoring points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole. Unlike traditional scoring methods, where the aim is to have the lowest score, under Stableford rules, the objective is to have the highest score.

The Stableford system was developed by Dr. Frank Barney Gorton Stableford (1870–1959), to deter golfers from giving up on their round after just one or two bad holes.

Stableford can have the added benefit of speeding up the pace of play, as once it is no longer possible to score a point, a player does not have to complete the hole but can simply pick up his/her ball and proceed to the next hole. It is a popular form of the game, especially at club level and particularly in the United Kingdom, as it is still possible to record a competitive score despite having the occasional bad hole.

The Champions Tour has to thank Kenny Perry in its win in the 3-Tour Challenge.

Perry, who is from Franklin, Kentucky, made nine birdies and the Champions Tour won the Challenge for 2011.

The Champions team consisted of Perry, Jay Haas and Mark Calcavecchia were a combined 15 under par in the best-ball format that allowed each team to disallow one score per hole.

The group overtook the PGA Tour team of Boo Weekley, Gary Woodlund and Jonathan Byrd by shooting an 8 under par over the final nine holes of the tournament in Henderson, Nevada.

The PGA Tour team shot a 12-under-par.

Wisconsin native Steve Stricker is the man to catch on Sunday at the Memorial Tournament.

He has had a fantastic three rounds shooting a 68, 67 and 68 for a 12-under-par 204 and a three shot lead over his pal on the TOUR, Jonathan Byrd.

The 44-year-old Stricker, the world’s #8 golfer, Has competed in 11 Memorial Tournaments, and his best finish was a 13th in 1996.

To start his third round, Stricker recorded an eagle-2 on the 442-yard second hole with a 53 degree SW from 116 yards out. He followed three holes later with an eagle-3 on the 529-yard fifth hole. The last eagle on number-2 was by Chris Perry in 2001.

Stricker is the 13th player since 1983 to record eagles on a par-3, par-4 and par-5 in the same week (in stroke play events on TOUR). It is the first time in Memorial Tournament history. Rocco Mediate was the last to accomplish the feat at the 2010 Frys.com Open.

In Stricker’s first 592 holes this season he had two eagles. He has three in his last 20 holes.

Stricker is the only player in the field to post his opening three rounds in the 60′s. The last player to record four rounds in the 60′s at the Memorial was Bart Bryant on his way to the win in 2005 (69-69-66-68). Four rounds in the 60′s has only been accomplished eight times in Memorial Tournament history, with Fred Couples (1988 and 2004) the only player to do it twice. the others include Hal Sutton (1986), Paul Azinger (1993), Tom Lehman (1994), Steve Elkington (1995) and Tiger Woods (2001). Only Elkington and Couples, in 2004, did not win the tournament.

Stricker currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin, home of the Badgers, but he is a University of Illinois alumnus.

He’s been on TOUR since 1990 and has 9 wins in the books.

He has won the PGA Tour’s comeback player of the year twice, in 2006 and 2007.
