Sang-Moon Bae captured the PGA Tour’s 2014-15 season-opener, the Frys.com Open, by two shots over Steven Bowditch, posting a 15-under total at Silverado’s North Course. (He also leads in FedExCup points!!!)

Bae, who secured his first-career victory at the 2013 Byron Nelson Championship, started his campaign for his second win heading into the final round with a commanding four-shot lead. He extended it to as many as six strokes throughout the round, but a bogey on no. 8 led to a shaky stretch of holes — he bogeyed four of the next seven, though he balanced it out with two birdies.

After Hunter Mahan rolled in a delicate 10-footer to save bogey on the 18th hole, he smiled out of both relief and joy. The putt sealed his two-stroke victory over Jason Day, Cameron Tringale and Stuart Appleby at The Barclays, the first of four legs of the FedExCup Playoffs — it was also his first win since 2012.

Ernie Els hasn’t had the best season of his career — not by a long shot, but he feels like his game is finally taking a turn for the better. He’s been enduring some growing pains following a couple of changes. There’s been the equipment switch from Callaway to Adams. He’s back to using the short putter after a couple-year dalliance with the belly putter. He’s also been enduring a nagging injury to his back and ribs due to the wear of tear of too much practicing and playing.
