Learning only six-days prior that he would be playing in the Wells Fargo Championship as the fourth alternate, 22-year-old rookie, Derek Ernst, shocked the world when he 20-under-par 70 in the final round, 8-under overall to tie England’s David Lynn who he later defeated on the 1st playoff hole to capture the title and winning share of US$1,170,000.00.

A great payday for a kid ranked 1,207 in the world and playing in only his ninth ever PGA Tour event.

Phil Mickelson, the leader going into the final round, was primed to win the tournament. After 14-holes, he was 10-under overall until a double bogey on the 15th followed by another bogey on the 16th dropped him one stroke back of the lead. Mickelson parred the final two holes to finish in 3rd place.

World number 2, Rory McIlroy, was three strokes back of the lead going into the Sunday. An eagle on the 7th hole put him only one stroke behind the leader before a double bogey on the 9th and back-to-back bogeys on 11 and 12 killed his momentum. McIlroy finished tied 10th.

  1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely
    unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
