Robert Streb birdied the second extra hole to beat Brendon de Jonge and Will Mackenzie, the 54-hole co-leader who was eliminated after bogeying the first playoff hole, and capture his first PGA Tour title at the McGladrey Classic.

On the par-3 179-yard 17th, Streb knocked a dart to about four feet from the cup. He rolled in the birdie putt to defeat de Jonge, who had just barely missed his 20-footer to extend the battle.

With Martin Kaymer winning The Players and J.B. Holmes winning the Wells Fargo, no one can be considered an expert at picking champions on the PGA Tour.   A long shot, odds at 50/1 or worse, has a great chance to win because of the strong fields on Tour.

De Jonge goes low Friday

De Jonge goes low Friday

After posting an eight-over 80 on Thursday at Quail Hollow Club, Brendon de Jonge figured he’d be going home early — which, at least, wouldn’t be far since he resides in Charlotte, where the Wells Fargo Championship is held. Then, de Jonge caught fire on Friday, shooting a 10-under 62 to tie the course record that Rory McIlroy set in the final round in 2010 when he went on to win.

Rory McIlroy recovered from a slow start, with two bogeys in his first three holes, and posted six birdies to fire a four-under 66 in the second round of the Honda Classic. McIlroy, who opened with a flawless seven-under 63 at PGA National on Thursday, is 11-under at the halfway mark.

More bromance!

I thought they weren’t into fist-bumping?

Aside from the crappy weather and delays — which we’re pretty used to this year on the PGA Tour — this Presidents Cup is much more intriguing than most expected. We thought it’d just be another American blowout, like every other year, except 1998 when the Internationals captured their lone win.

While there are four matches in the Friday foursomes sessions still in progress, the first two were completed, with the Americans and Internationals each securing a point. The score currently stands with U.S. 4.5, International 3.5.

Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away

The horn sounded at 3:09pm at Muirfield Village, suspending Friday’s foursomes session — which might sound familiar because play was halted at 2:38pm on Thursday.

It might also be reminiscent of The Memorial Tournament held here at Muirfield Village in late May/early June every season, which isn’t The Memorial without weather delays. Actually, the PGA Tour’s ongoing battle with inclement weather causing the suspension of play has truly been the theme of the year.

Mother Nature, you win.

Well, so much for that fast start the International team needed in Thursday’s four-ball matches! When play was suspended at 2:38pm due to inclement weather in the area, the Americans were up in five matches and all square in one of them. Not surprising.

I know THERE’S A LOT OF GOLF LEFT, but the Internationals have fared decently in the four-ball format in past Presidents Cups, while they’ve struggled tremendously in the foursomes (alternate shot).

The Golf News Net’s Ryan Ballengee joined me to chat about our thoughts and reactions to the Presidents Cup captains’ picks by Fred Couples for Team USA and Nick Price for the Internationals. Tune in. We are super insightful.

Oh, by the way, Ballengee and I are going to make this a regular program. We’re still undecided on the name, but we’ll be doing these regularly on Tuesdays, and you should tune in because next week we might get into a fight or two and have a surprise guest!

Anyway, leave your thoughts and comments below.

The Picks

The Picks

After Phil Mickelson played with Jordan Spieth on Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship and watched the 20-year-old phenom fire 62, he was impressed, to say the least. Mickelson was so impressed with Spieth that he sent a text almost immediately after they signed their scorecards to Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team, that said:  “Dude, you’ve got to pick this guy.”

Webb Simpson is currently tied for the lead and searching for his first professional victory at the Greenbrier Classic.

Webb Simpson sank his birdie putt at the par-3 18th hole and placed the finishing touches on a nearly flawless two-under-par 68 to tie him at seven-under with Brendon De Jonge atop the Greenbrier Classic leaderboard.

Simpson doesn’t look like your typical third-year professional on Tour. He hasn’t finished outside of the top 20 since May at the Players Championship.
