  • Thailand's Ariya captures third LPGA title in a row

    Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn won her third consecutive LPGA title, firing a final-round five-under par 67 to win the inaugural Volvik Championship by five strokes over American Christina Kim. Ariya became the first player to capture her first three LPGA crowns consecutively, pushing the 20-year-old from Bangkok within two of the tour record win streak of five events by Sweden's Annika Sorenstam and American Nancy Lopez. Ariya became the first Thai player to win an LPGA title when she took the Yokohama Tire Classic in Alabama earlier this month and added the Kingsmill Championship last week.

  • Wood eyes Ryder Cup, Olympic teams

    England's Chris Wood is eyeing a spot in the Ryder Cup and the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro after his win in the European PGA Championship at Wentworth on Sunday. Wood put himself in the frame for a place in the European team, under Darren Clarke at Hazeltine, with his one million euro ($1.11 million) prize money, but still has to overtake one of Danny Willett and Justin Rose in the world rankings to make the Great Britain team for Rio. The Wentworth victory will push Wood into the top 25, but Willett was ninth and Rose 10th the week before the event.

  • Spieth dispatches Masters nightmare with Colonial win

    (Reuters) - Jordan Spieth exhibited his short-game wizardry with six back-nine birdies to claim the Colonial tournament on Sunday for his eighth career PGA Tour victory before his 23rd birthday, an impressive run that is one better than Tiger Woods managed at that age. The emphatic win not only gave Spieth, who turns 23 on July 27, his first win in his home state after three second-place showings in Texas, but the performance came in his third start since his back-nine collapse at the Masters last month. “To come back in only our third tournament and close it out is really, really special,” Spieth said.

    Shaking off a Masters meltdown as he prepares to defend his US Open crown, world number two Jordan Spieth birdied the last three holes Sunday to win the Dean and Deluca Invitational. Spieth led last month's Masters with nine holes remaining and appeared set for a second consecutive wire-to-wire victory at Augusta National, only to collapse on the back nine and hand England's Danny Willett the green jacket, literally doing so at the award ceremony with a grim facial expression. "I knew it was going to be tough to put the Masters behind me," Spieth said.

  • Wentworth going back to original design, says tour chief

    By Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England (Reuters) - The bulldozers will arrive at Wentworth next month as organizers begin their bid to restore the BMW PGA Championship venue to its former glory, European Tour supremo Keith Pelley said on Sunday. The iconic layout on the outskirts of London was originally designed by Harry Colt in 1926 but has undergone a complete facelift from four-times major champion Ernie Els in the last decade. The changes have not met with unanimous approval and top players such as Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Ian Poulter and Padraig Harrington chose to give the tour's flagship event a miss this year for a variety of reasons.
