srini - Fowler's a 25-year-old that in the first 3 majors of the year has reached his career best in each one, and all were top 5 finishes. Assuming that Tiger is on the downslope it looks like he may be the new Phil Mickelson equivalent if Rory McIlroy is the new Tiger.

1. gtho4
2. paper_aero
3. Sypher




*- gtho4 won a tiebreaker over paper_aero when his fifth golfer (Marc Leishman) shot a 283 compared to papers fifth golfer (Keegan Bradley) earning a 292 after missing the cut.

**- Sypher won a tiebreaker over BxBarracuda because BxBarracudas fifth golfer (Jason Dufner) withdrew from the tournament.

  • In a hotly-contested match, the top 2 had the same 4 golfers as their top 4, but thanks to choosing 5 golfers all under par, gtho4 takes home the victory!

  • gtho4 and paper_aero both ended up having Rory McIlroy (winner), Phil Mickelson (runner-up), Rickie Fowler (T-3rd), and Adam Scott (T-15th) as their top 4. gtho4 chose Marc Leishman as his fifth, finishing -1 for the tournament. paper_aeros fifth, Keegan Bradley, was cut after shooting +4, which was doubled to +8.

  • The bronze medal was much more clear-cut, as Syphers fifth golfer, also Keegan Bradley, made it through his two rounds, while BxBarracudas fifth golfer, last years PGA Champion Jason Dufner, withdrew in the first round.

  • There was one common theme for those at the top of the leaderboard... and in the middle... and most of those at the bottom: Rory McIlroy. Every tipper except for ozzz2002 (that rebel) chose the tournament champion, which is something we have never seen; even in the days that Tiger Woods used to play golf. The closest we ever came to having a universally-chosen golfer before now was 11/14 picking Tiger for the 2013 Masters, and it beats the most-chosen record when 12/16 picked Lee Westwood for the 2012 Open Championship.

  • Going into Sunday, five players were in good position to win the PGA Championship: Rory McIlroy, leading by one stroke over Bernd Wiesberger, with a one stroke advantage over Rickie Fowler, who also had a one stroke lead over Jason Day and Phil Mickelson. Early on into the day, Henrik Stenson pushed himself into the picture with a -5 front nine. Meanwhile, Jason Day fizzled out with an even front 9. Wiesberger went +3 on the day and was never really in the picture.

  • McIlroy began to fade early with a +1 front nine, but an eagle on #10 put him back into the picture at -14. By that time, Fowler was out to a solo lead at -15, but Mickelson tied him on #11. Stenson temporarily tied them on #13, but a bogey on #14 put him back to -14, where he would stay. Fowler did the same on #14, and stuck with Stenson at -14.

  • This leaving McIlroy and Mickelson to battle it out, McIlroy tied for the lead with a birdie on #13. As the sun began to set, Mickelson bogeyed #16. Shortly afterwards, in the looming darkness, McIlroy birdied #17. Due to the darkness, the Fowler-Mickelson group allowed McIlroy-Wiesberger to hit into them as they walked to their balls for their drives and second shots. A Mickelson birdie on #18 meant McIlroy had 3 shots to get in from a greenside bunker, which he did exactly despite having nearly just the light of the moon.

  • A few upset picks went unpicked in this tournament. Ryan Palmer was tied for 5th with a -12; five of six golfers who finished at -11 were chosen by no one (Jimmy Walker, Victor Dubuisson, Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker, Mikko Ilonen); Kevin Chappell went -10, as well as the aforementioned Bernd Wiesberger. The top possible score for a legal team was 1077 (McIlroy-Mickelson-Stenson-Fowler-Palmer).

  • With that, the 2014 golf major season is over, and we look forward to 2015!
