Davis Love III captured his third PGA TOUR victory at the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club with a tournament total of 17-under-par 263. Love beat out fellow AJGA alumni Jason Gore who shot 16-under-par 264. At 51, Love became the third-oldest winner on the PGA TOUR. AJGA Alumni Scott Brown, Brooks Koepka, Bill Haas, Carl Pettersson, Webb Simpson, Ryan Moore and Tiger Woods all finished in the top 10.

Patton Kizzire fired his second straight 64 to claim the News Sentinel Open presented by Pilot on the Web.com Tour. Kizzire shot a tournament total of 20-under-par 264 to defeat Si Woo Kim and Brad Fritsch by four strokes. Jeff Curl, Scott Harrington and Matt Fast finished in fourth at 15-under-par 269. Bronson Burgoon, Michael Hebert and Tag Ridings rounded out the alumni in the top 10.

Lydia Ko picked up her third Canadian Pacific Women’s Open victory in Vancouver, Canada. Ko defeated Stacy Lewis in a one-hole playoff. Lewis carded a final-round 67 to force the playoff but was unable to overcome Ko. Alison Lee and Candie Kung tied for fifth at 10-under-par 278. Shanshan Feng, Lexi Thompson and Inbee Park rounded out the top 10.

Ten Team U.S.A. players for the 2015 Solheim Cup were finalized with the results from the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open over the weekend. The list includes Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr, Michelle Wie, Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel, Angela Stanford, Gerina Piller, Lizette Salas and Alison Lee. Lee is the only member of the team who has not played in the Solheim Cup. She participated in the PING Junior Solheim Cup three times (2009, 2011, 2013). The final-two spots will be filled by captain’s picks.

Bryson DeChambeau claimed the title at the US Amateur. DeChambeau defeated fellow AJGA Alumni Derek Bard 7-and-6 at Olympia Fields Country Club. DeChambeau led 2-up after 18 holes and continued his great ball striking throughout the remainder of the 36-hole final.
