- Not Over Yet: For a fourth straight day thunderstorms delayed the U.S. Women's Open. Twenty-eight players will try to chase down clubhouse leader Hee Kyung Seo when play resumes at 10 a.m. ET.
- Clutch Champ: Steve Stricker's three-peat dreams seemed dashed in the fairway bunker at 18. But he made as clutch a birdie putt we've seen all season from off the green to win the John Deere Classic for the third straight year.
- Best for Last: Luke Donald saved his best for the last round at the 54-hole Barclays Scottish Open where he shot a European Tour career best 63 to win by 4 shots.
- Taming Pebble: Jeff Sluman is the first Champions Tour member to win the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach three times. He carded a final-round 70 in difficult conditions to win by two.
