Justin Thomas won his six-hole singles match and was closest to the pin on the decisive final hole as he and Tiger Woods won an exhibition match Tuesday that served as the grand opening of the Woods-designed Payne's Valley Golf Course at Big Cedar Lodge. The televised event was called the Payne's Valley Cup, after the course Woods designed in the Ozarks. It was the first public course in the United States for Tiger Woods Design.
Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas teamed to beat Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose in the first Payne's Valley Cup at Woods' design in Missouri.
Two moments were key for Bryson DeChambeau winning the U.S. Open. The first one was early in the week, when he played a practice round at Winged Foot with Phil Mickelson. ''He said, 'In 2006, I had the best short-game week of my life,' and that really stuck out to me for some reason,'' DeChambeau said.
