FORT WORTH, Texas - Chris Kirk made a par-saving 7-foot putt after an errant tee shot at the 18th hole, avoiding a playoff at Colonial and winning by a stroke Sunday for his fourth career PGA Tour victory.
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - There was nothing overrated about Rickie Fowler at The Players Championship.
Criticized this week by his peers as an underachiever, Fowler answered with the greatest finish in the 34-year history at the TPC Sawgrass. He rallied from a five-shot deficit on the back nine by playing the final six holes in 6-under par. In a three-hole playoff, he took on every shot. And he made birdie from inside 6 feet three times Sunday on the island-green 17th.
On the 20th anniversary of the last Texan - Ben Crenshaw - to win the Masters, Jordan Spieth closed with 2-under-par 70 on Sunday to win by four shots and finish at 18-under-par 270, matching Tiger Woods' 18-year-old scoring record.
