Matt Kuchar ended four-year winless slid on the PGA Tour victory Sunday by closing with a 2-under 69 to win the Mayakoba Golf Classic

Matt Kuchar had gone four years, six months and three weeks since his last PGA Tour victory. The last few holes Sunday at the Mayakoba Golf Classic must have felt just as long. Kuchar started the final round with a four-shot lead and made only two bogeys in the first 67 holes he played at El Camaleon Golf Club.

Despite the late drama, the 40-year-old Kuchar finished at two-under-par 69 to complete the week at 22-under 262, the lowest 72-hole score in tournament history. Lee shot six-under par 65 to wind up at 21-under 263, equalling the previous tournament record. Kuchar had been in cruise control for much of the tournament but struggles at the 14th and 15th holes enabled Lee to make it interesting as he pulled within one shot with a birdie at the 16th hole at the El Camaleon in Playa del Carmen The American, playing behind Lee, collected pars on the last three holes, finally winning with a three-foot putt at the 18th after Lee missed a birdie opportunity that would have tied the score.

There was no getting away from the turn-back-the-clock feel to Lee Westwood’s performance at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Facts are facts, and the Englishman with the dry-wit and the gray stubble had not been victorious on the European Tour since April 2014, or anywhere for that matter since April 2015. The former World No. 1 had contended a time or three in the meanwhile, but at 45, now ranked 119th in the world and having seen his status in the game fall from name brand to also ran, most observers—including Westwood himself—couldn’t help but wonder if he had essentially reached the end of the road.

Lee Westwood wiped away the tears after rolling back the years yesterday. The former world No 1 shot a brilliant 64 to lift the Nedbank Challenge in Sun City, his first win in 3½ years. Not only was the European Tour event part of the elite Rolex Series, boasting a near £1 million first prize, but ­Westwood had to battle off two ­major winners to prevail at the Gary Player Country Club.

Bernhard Langer celebrated his fifth Charles Schwab Cup with his wife and friends, a glass of red wine in his hand. Both walked away winners Sunday when Singh produced the best round of his PGA Tour Champions career, a 10-under 61 that turned a six-shot deficit into a four-shot victory in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship and allowed Langer to claim another $1 million bonus for the season title. "At age 61 to do it is quite an achievement," Langer said, holding a glass of red wine on the balcony at Phoenix Country Club.

Doc Giffin, who for 50 years served as assistant to the late Arnold Palmer, enjoys pointing out one of the great coincidences that tied together the two men long before they ever met. “It was all probably meant to be,” Giffin was saying Friday night at Latrobe Country Club, the place where Palmer learned the game and grew to love it and then, eventually, to rule it. “Arnold turned pro on November 18, 1954.

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. – Braden Thornberry plans to play the final stage of Tour Q-School as an amateur. Whether or not he’s still an amateur after that remains to be seen. Thornberry tied for 14th Friday at Southern Hills Plantation Club, where he shot 14 under in 72 holes. He was among 18 players out of that second-stage site to move on to Q-School finals Dec. 6-9 at Whirlwind Golf Club in Chandler, Ariz. The Ole Miss senior, who won the 2017 NCAA individual title as a sophomore, told Golfweek that if he finishes among the top 40 and ties – and earns full status for the 2019 Tour season – he’ll leave school a semester early and turn pro. If not, he’ll have some thinking to do. Every
