Bubba shows spectator up


Travelers Championship winner Bubba Watson started his final round with back-to-back birdies, and on the second he didn’t half show up one spectator!

Heading into playing his second shot from off the fairway, Bubba received a call from the sidelines telling him to play a low 4-iron, to which he responded ‘that’s why you’re on the other side of the ropes’.

He then proceeded to play this shot with his sand wedge, before calling out the spectator and tapping home his putt for birdie.


Monty runner-up in Sacramento


In defence of his US Senior Open title, Colin Montgomerie came up two shots short as Jeff Maggert lifted the trophy at Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento.

The 52-year-old shot a final round of 66 to get to eight-under-par – a total he thought would be enough to win the tournament – but Maggert carded a 65 to finish on ten-under-par.

Meanwhile, Tom Watson, who at 65 was bidding to become the oldest winner of a senior major, started the day one off the lead but carded a 69 to finish in a tie for seventh.

Lawrie pleased with Munich showing


Despite a one-over-par final round of 73, Paul Lawrie was pleased with his week’s work as he finished T29 on seven-under-par – the joint-highest ranked Scot in the field.

The 1999 Open champion tweeted: “73+1 today disappointing but a lot of positives this week, just couldn’t score today but sometimes it is what it is @AAMScottishOpen next.”

Chris Doak finished alongside Lawrie on seven-under-par, while David Drysdale, Scott Henry, Scott Jamieson and Craig Lee all missed the cut.

Bradley takes 19 practice swings!


With slow play currently a major talking point in the game, this probably isn’t what we wanted to see from Keegan Bradley at the TPC River Highlands, as the US Ryder Cup star took AGES to play this shot at the 14th.

Ko cards 63 on LPGA Tour


Battling to regain her position as world No.1, Lydia Ko shot an eight-under-par final round of 63 to finish sixth at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.

The 18-year-old, who lost her position at the summit of the women’s game following Inbee Park’s victory at the Women’s US Open, finished four shots adrift of Na Yeon Choi, who carded a 63 of her own during her second round.

Spieth living the dream…


Masters and US Open champion Jordan Spieth had a week off, and it seems like the 21-year-old really is living the dream after his double major success so far in 2015.

Here he is with girlfriend Annie Verret and friends on board a boat in the Bahamas…
