It was Rickie Fowler sometime back...looks like Jason Day is the flavor of this tournament (along with Spieth and Oosthuizen smile )

1. George95
2. Howie72
3. N-Bomb


  • George95 notches his 2nd PGA Championship victory in 3 years, edging out a very tight field. Congratulations!

  • George95, along with several others, picked both winner Jason Day and 2nd-place finisher Jordan Spieth. However, his next 2 picks of Matt Kuchar and Louis Oosthuizen barely pushed him over Howie72 by 1 stroke, and N-Bomb by 4 strokes.

  • It was a proud day for our Aussies, as Jason Day raised the countrys first major trophy since Steve Elkington in 1995. After the first two days, it seemed as if the nation might have 2 golfers in contention, as Matt Jones led going into the weekend. However, Jones went over par both Saturday and Sunday to put him down the leaderboard.

  • Aside from Aussie pride, srini701 must be feeling some Indian pride as Anirban Lahiri completed the best major performance of an Indian golfer ever, tying for fifth.

  • Most common pick Jordan Spieth (ozzz2002 will have to explain himself for not making Spieth a unanimous pick) had a slow start, but a Saturday 65 put him in the final group.

  • Day started the round 2 strokes up on Spieth, and he would never be within 1 shot. Spieth was 2 back for two holes total, while Branden Grace was 2 back for a few holes until he hit trouble with a double bogey at #10. He would finish third, but never came back into contention. Justin Rose sniffed a 2-shot deficit, but notched a double bogey as well on #13, and earned fourth by the end.

  • Six different tippers picked both Day and Spieth. The top 3 all picked both, while illiniman14 in fourth chose only Spieth with other less-chosen golfers. Adam Scott was the third-most chosen golfer, but never came close to making the cut.

  • The All Non-Picked Team of Branden Grace, George Coetzee, Robert Streb, and Tony Finau would have finished tied for third.

  • The 2015 PGA major season is over, but things ramp back up on April 7, 2016 for the Masters!

    I'll jump in before the Aussies get to you and remind you of Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy's major triumphs. Alas, there have now been 3 Aussies to have won majors since NZ last claimed one
