Gary Woodland won the Waste Management Phoenix Open on the first sudden death hole over Chez Reavie.

Gary Woodland was on fire today with a 5 under par 30 on the front nine and with birdies on 3 of the last 4 holes fought his way into a tie for first place with Chez Reavie.

Chez Reavie lives less than a mile from the course so he was comfortable playing here for sure. Chez birdied the last 2 holes to tie Gary Woodland at -18 under par and force a playoff.

Woodland wasted no time by winning the first playoff hole and put another PGA Tour win on his résumé.

There were no lack of low scores, birdies, eagles, & fan support this week. What a wonderful tournament and over 3/4 of a million fans for the week.

Just amazing how well this tournament is handled!

The whole golfing world was pulling for Phil Mickelson to make it happen. We definitely saw signs of the old Phil or should I say The Phil of old?

Chesson Hadley, Matt Kuchar, Bryson DeChambeau, & Phil Mickelson all tied for 5th place at -14 under par. Kuch had the lowest score of these 4 with a -4 under par 67 today.

There was a 2 way tie for 3rd place. Ollie Schniederjans and Brendan Steele both tied at -15 under par. Ollie was amazing today with a -6 under par 65.

Rickie Fowler really fell out of range. Starting the day on top of the leaderboard he shot a 2 over 73 and ended up in a tie for 11th.

Justin Thomas tried to get it going today after yesterday’s fiasco. He was able to go -5 under and shoot a 66. That was a nice comeback after what happened yesterday.

Next week we will be at the beautiful Pebble Beach AT&T-pro-am.

Defending champion is Jordan Spieth. Always a fun time with some of the greatest golfers, entertainers, & sports figures in the world attending and playing.

See you all then! Oh and WAY TO GO EAGLES! Fantastic game and congratulations on your first Super Bowl ring!!!
