Daniel Berger overcomes three-shot deficit, wins St. Jude Classic

Daniel Berger overcomes three-shot deficit, wins St. Jude Classic”

What was left was an awkward 25-foot chip to save par.

It was a further stroke back to two-time US Open champion Retief Goosen of South Africa and Chez Reavie.

"I haven't played real well in a couple years, and I've been out here for like seven or eight, so I kind of know the drill", Every said. "Then I played pretty solid the last few holes".

In a keenly-fought contest, which at one point included nine players tied for the lead, Berger picked up a birdie on 15 to move clear.

He sank birdie putts from about 10 feet away at both the second and sixth, and sank a shorter birdie attempt at the ninth.

But world No 9 Rickie Fowler, the top-ranked player in the field, can get an early start to Erin Hills for next week's US Open in Wisconsin after missing the cut with rounds of 74 and 70.

Schwartzel looks back on track after a brief lull following his third-place finish in the Masters.

Matt Every, Scott Brown, Stewart Cink and Sebastian Munoz each shot 6-under 64s on Thursday to share the lead after one round at the St. Jude Classic.

The leaderboard was a jumbled mess through much of the final round. "I'm really proud of the way I played today". "It's just - I feel like I wasn't even on the golf course". Lefty will get the headlines on the weekend, though, as he's been in the top five in three of the last four tournaments here and is skipping next week's major to be at his daughter's graduation. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.554 strokes tee-to-green and 1.770 on-the-green.

Thornberry shot 65 and became the first amateur to finish in the top 10 at St. Jude since 1965.

Jutanugarn shot a 3-under 69 in the final round and was tied with Thompson and Chun at 17-under 271 heading into the playoff.

Phil Mickelson made a dramatic charge and grabbed a share of the lead following his fifth birdie of the day at No. 10, but he doused his momentum and his chances with a triple bogey at the par-4 12th. Sharp connected and followed it up with three birdies over her next four holes.
