1. Brooks Koepka recorded only the fourth albatross in Players Championship history. The US Open champion, who has been plagued by a wrist injury for most of this season, holed his second at TPC Sawgrass’ par-4 16th en route to a final round of 63. With 208 yards between him and the hole, Koepka pulled out a 6-iron and subsequently produced arguably the best shot of the week. “To be honest with you I wasn’t aiming at the flag,” said Koepka afterwards. “I was aiming about 15 feet left and I pushed it a little bit.” The 28-year-old ultimately finished in a tie for 11th.

2. Joakim Lagergren
claimed his first European Tour title at the Rocco Forte Sicilian Open.
The Swede started the final round two shots behind Frenchman Mike
Lorenzo-Vera but reined him in courtesy of a closing 68. He then got
across the line with a birdie at the first hole of a sudden-death
play-off. “I’ve been waiting for this moment my whole career,” said
Lagergren. “I’m so relieved and I’m so happy at the moment, I can’t
describe it in words.” He becomes the second first-time Swedish winner
on the European Tour in the last three weeks, following Alexander
Bjork’s Volvo China Open win.

3. Dimitrios Papadatos
closed with a three-under 69 to win his maiden Challenge Tour title at
the Open de Portugal. The 26-year-old, a three-time winner on the PGA
Tour of Australasia, had started the final day in Portimão one shot
behind overnight leaders José-Filipe Lima and Stuart Manley. “This is a
big step forward and it’s going to help me out a lot,” said Papadatos.

4. Just a week after winning the equivalent Welsh title, Scotland’s Hannah McCook
claimed the Irish Women’s Open Strokeplay Championship at County Louth.
The 24-year-old from Grantown-on-Spey closed with a 73 for a one-over
total of 223 and a two-shot win over Dutch golfer Romy Meekers.

5.  Stephen Jaeger
a seven-under 64 in the final round to win the Knoxville Open by three
shots and, in the process, secure his third fourth career Tour
title. Jaeger, who you might recall carded a 58 in the first round of
the 2016 Ellie Mae Classic, held off South Korea’s Im Sung-jae to win by
three shots at Fox Den CC.
