Gary Woodland wins PGA Tour’s Reno-Tahoe Open

(By OCAL, courtesy

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.

On the season, he comibined to hit 17 homers between Akron and Columbus as his 17 home runs were third-most among all Indians minor league players.
