Jordan Spieth, 19 years old won the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois on Sunday to become the youngest winner on the PGA Tour in 82 years.

The last teenager to win on the PGA Tour was Ralph Guldahl in 1931.

He beat David Hearn and Zach Johnson on the fifth playoff hole.

Spieth earned his way into the playoff round by holing out of the bunker from 44 feet on the final hole of regulation.

Spieth connected on a 2-foot par putt to earn a spot in this week’s British Open.

Johnson halts Dufner’s PGA Tour hot streak; wins Colonial

Jason Dufner had been the talk of the PGA Tour the past four weeks, winning two tournaments.

After winning the Byron Nelson Championship, Dufner was trying to match Ben Hogan as the only golfers to win both PGA Tour-events in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the same year. Hogan accomplished the feat in 1946. Back in those days, the tournaments were not played in consecutive weeks.

Zach Johnson was able to cool down Dufner somewhat after winning the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial for his first victory since winning in the Dallas event two years ago.

Johnson earned his eighth career PGA Tour victory by holding off Dufner.

Johnson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for failing to replace his ball at its original position after marking it on the 18th hole. That put him at 2-over-par 72 and a one-shot win in Fort Worth, Texas.

Johnson moved his original ball mark out of the line of Dufner’s putt on the 18th green. But he made the mistake of forgetting to move it back before his final 5-foot putt.

Even with that penalty,Johnson’s 12-under-268 total was good enough to beat Dufner, who closed the final round of 74.

HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY

* On April 8, 1952, President Harry S. Truman issued an executive order seizing the American steel industry to avert a nationwide strike.

The U.S. Supreme Court later ruled that Truman did not have the authority to issue such an order and a seven-week strike went into motion by the steelworkers.

*In 1913, the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, providing for direct popular election of United States senators as opposed to appointment by state legislatures, was ratified.

* In 1974, Hammerin’ Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hit his 715th career home run in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Al Downing. That homer broke Babe Ruth’s record of 714.

*In 1990, Ryan White, the teenage AIDS patient whose battle for acceptance had gained national attention, died in Indianapolis at age 18.

*In 1994, Kurt Cobain, singer and guitarist for the rock band Nirvana, was found dead in Seattle, of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound; he was just 27.

* In 2007, Zach Johnson won the Masters golf tournament with a two-shot win over Tiger Woods.

Finally after two years, Tiger Woods wins a golf tournament

Tiger Woods has overcome a bunch of distractions in the past two years totaling 26 tournaments.

He has gone winless on the PGA Tour, lost several key endorsements, turmoil which ended his marriage and has overhauled his golf game several times.

Recently, he has done well in the Presidents’ Cup and now the Chevron World Challenge which he won.

The 35-year-old golf star won the tournament on a 6-foot birdie putt which he made to cap off a birdie-birdie finish at Sherwood in Thousand Oaks, California.  The California native closed the final round with a 3-under-par 69 and beat former Masters champion Zach Johnson by a single shot.

Woods won the event which he is the host for his charity foundation, for the fifth time. Overall for the week, he finished at 10-under-278 and donated the winner’s purse of $1.2 million to his foundation.

Woods, trailing by one shot with two holes to play, showed his old magic making clutch putts. He holed a 15-foot for birdie on the par-3 17th hole to get into a tie with Johnson. Then he hit a 9-iron from 158 yards that landed on the ridge behind the hole and rolled down to 6 feet.

There’s really no surprise for golf fans that Tiger Woods has been selected as a captain’s pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

He has 71 wins and 14 major wins.

The surprise pick is 21-year-old Rickie Fowler, who has not won anything, but is a fan favorite because of his good-nature and his vast array of colorful clothing.

Captain Corey Pavin made the selections Tuesday morning at the New York Stock Exchange. He also added former major champions Zach Johnson and Stewart Cink to the American team that will try to retain the cup.

The Ryder Cup takes place October 1-3 at the Celtic Manor in Wales. The United States won two years ago at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky, and will try to win for the first time overseas since 1993 at the Belfry.

The eight Americans who qualified after the PGA Championship were Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jeff Overton.
