Ogilvie Wins First PGA TOUR Title

By Associated PressJuly 22, 2007, 4:00 pm
US Bank Championship in MilwaukeeMILWAUKEE -- Joe Ogilvie eagled the par-4 16th hole to break a tie with Tim Clark and win his first PGA TOUR event in 230 starts by shooting a 67 to finish 14-under 266 at the U.S. Bank Championship on Sunday.
 
Clark (71), along with third-round leader Tim Herron (72) and Charlie Wi (68) finished 10 under. Steve Flesch (68), Bob Heintz (68), Jeff Maggert (69) and Kenny Perry (71) were six strokes back.
 
Clark squandered a two-stroke lead on the back nine and he and Herron, playing in the final group, heard the gallery's roar after Ogilvie's eagle.
 
Ogilvie, at 11 under, had to carry his wedge shot over water 119 yards to the pin. The ball hit the middle of the green and spun back about 30 feet to the cup, where it dropped.
 
Ogilvie had a wide-eyed look, jumping up and yelling 'Whoa!' before an awkward high-five with his caddie to celebrate the lucky shot that moved him 13 under.
 
He added a birdie on No. 18 to finish his round, but the eagle was all Ogilvie needed.
 
The 33-year-old Duke graduate who closely monitors the stock market had made seven consecutive cuts and led here at the midway point, but said his weekend play made him a seller, not a buyer.
 
Now he'll have $720,000 to invest for winning at the Brown Deer Golf Course, the PGA's shortest event, after the economics major vastly underestimated his own value on the final four holes, which he played at 9 under for the tournament.
 
The holes saved him on Saturday. In the midst of a poor round, he recorded an eagle-birdie sequence on Nos. 15 and 16 to move back within a shot of the lead heading into Sunday.
 
On Sunday, Ogilvie bogeyed the 10th to fall two off the lead, but he responded with a 24-foot birdie on No. 13 to move to 11 under and set the stage for his eagle.
 
It was more frustration for Clark.
 
After squandering a three-stroke lead on the back nine at the John Deere Classic last week, the 31-year-old South African who now lives in Scottsdale, Ariz. held a two-stroke lead for a fleeting moment after Ogilvie's mistake on the 10th.
 
But Clark, runner-up at the 2006 Masters, missed a 16-footer for par on the 10th and dropped to 11 under and bogeyed No. 16 to fall further behind.
 
After receiving a cortisone shot three weeks ago for a bulging disk in his neck, Clark has been playing some of his best golf lately in an effort to make a third consecutive Presidents Cup team and the FedExCup playoffs.
 
But he is still winless on the PGA TOUR in part because he failed to make a birdie on the back nine.
 
Herron, who has more than $14 million in career earnings despite just four PGA TOUR titles, couldn't contain his wayward drives and the shots came back to haunt him after he took a one-stroke lead into the final round.
 
Herron, 37, carded two bogeys on the front nine and continued to squander opportunities on the back side. Herron finally birdied No. 16, but gave it right back with a bogey on No. 17 leaving no one to challenge Ogilvie.
 
Earlier in the day, Wi birdied four of the last five holes to move to 10-under, but it wasn't nearly enough to catch Ogilvie, either.
 
The U.S. Bank Championship had typically been played the week after the British Open, but fell concurrently to the tournament this year and will again in 2008.

    Schauffele just fine being the underdog

    By Rex HoggardJuly 21, 2018, 8:06 pm

    CARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Following a breakthough season during which he won twice and collected the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Award, Xander Schauffele concedes his sophomore campaign has been less than stellar, but that could all change on Sunday at The Open.

    Schauffele followed a second-round 66 with a 67 on Saturday to take a share of the 9-under-par lead with Jordan Spieth and Kevin Kisner.

    Although he hasn’t won in 2018, he did finish runner-up at The Players and tied for sixth at the U.S. Open, two of the year’s toughest tests.

    “Growing up, I always hit it well and played well in tough conditions,” Schauffele said. “I wasn't the guy to shoot 61. I was the guy to shoot like 70 when it was playing really hard.”

    Sunday’s pairing could make things even more challenging when he’ll head out in the day’s final tee time with Spieth, the defending champion. But being the underdog in a pairing, like he was on Saturday alongside Rory McIlroy, is not a problem.

    “All the guys I've talked to said, 'Live it up while you can, fly under the radar,'” he said. “Today I played in front of what you call Rory's crowd and guys were just yelling all the time, even while he's trying to putt, and he had to step off a few times. No one was yelling at me while I was putting. So I kind of enjoy just hanging back and relaxing.”
