Woodland Downs Reavie In Playoff To Seize Phoenix Crown

Woodland Downs Reavie In Playoff To Seize Phoenix Crown”

The three-time PGA Tour victor Woodland and wife Gabby lost one of their twins to a miscarriage less than a year ago - Woodland held son Jaxson Lynn, who survived the pregnancy, after holing the winning putt for par on the first extra hole.

Woodland had nine birdies in his seven-under par 64 at TPC Scottsdale and was in the clubhouse with the lead on 18-under par 266.

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler faded with a 73 to tie for 11th, while Shane Lowry closed with a 71 that left the Offaly man on two-over for his tournament.

2 Chez Reavie did everything well in making the playoff, but he was best in fairways hit (36/56, T10) and proximity to the hole on approach shots (35 feet, 8 inches; 11th best). His putter betrayed him when he contended.

Fowler finished T11 for the event but said on Saturday that he was buoyed by the over 216,000 in attendance. "Now the wife and the baby have been out; his attitude has been really good, which I think you can see in some of the rounds in Hawaii and San Diego, he got off to some bad starts and brought them back". "Fortunately I got hurt my rookie year in 2009 and I missed a year, which really allowed me to kind of adjust and adapt to being out here". "I probably got out here too soon", he said. "So he set me up with Pete to work on my short game".

It was a much rougher day for Fowler and Rahm, who remained in contention before falling apart down the stretch.

"It's been a frustrating five years, but I've battled through it".

Woodland spoke to CBS while holding young Jaxson, who was born last June, three months after he and his wife lost one of their unborn twins due to complications during the pregnancy.

"He just really had a solid year, all the way around", right tackle Lane Johnson said. (He now lives in South Florida.) He got a text from his coach, Butch Harmon, on Thursday, urging him to put four good rounds together and not worry about the score.

The last two European Tour winners were the 21-year-old Sharma and 22-year-old Li Haotong of China.

"I carried the sign board here growing up when I was in high school and junior high and to have a chance to win the tournament this week was a lot of fun", Reavie said.

Woodland has been a tireless worker throughout his career and nothing makes it all seem worthwhile quite like standing atop a loaded field. Kuchar also took note of Woodland's recent results, which included top-15 finishes in his last two starts, and felt like his friend might be about to win. I mean, not really knowing his schedule, missing a few events, going home.
