Accelerate loans nationally: Cyle Stanley won the playoff game
After a five-year run without a win on the PGA Tour, Kyle Stanley finished with a play-off win over Charles Howell III at the Quicken Loans National. After a five-year run without a win on the PGA Tour, Kyle Stanley finished with a play-off win over Charles Howell III at the Quicken Loans National. Started the game four rounds back the previous morning, but matched a 66 at TPC Potomac to get seven under and lead the competition into additional pockets where Stanley won with a single save on the first additional pocket.
Rickie Fowler raised a birdie-filled 65 to a third place finish with Martin Laird from Scotland, with David Ling Merth, one of eight men, taking another shot back to four over night. On his first five-hole climb, Langmerth fell two bogies when Daniel Summerhays made short progress, but then the final double-bogey.
With Curtis Luck at the top of the standings after three birdie's on a four-hole course, Martin Laird took a front-nine 32 and Sung Kang a shot on the 7th and 9th game day to achieve a foursome. He stormed into competition with a run of four even wins around the corner and balanced a three-man bow on the eleventh with back-to-back birds only to redouble the score on the fourteenth after he had found tea waters.
When Howell won a step-in on the tenth and emptied a 30-foot-agle on the fourth to reach seven under the leadership, Howell took the win on the tenth one. Lingmerth retained his leading position at the Quicken Loans National, but suffered a single leg to miss out on TPC Potomac's Avenel Farm after a triumph over 73 park in the second-to-last round.
With a second win at Maryland five years ago after having won an incident on the Developal Web.com Tour, the Swedish rider recorded only two birdies, whilst three bogeys plus a doubles threw him back to seven. This gives him a one-shot tour of the last 18 hits over Daniel Summerhays, whose American colleague Spencer Levin strikes back another blow.
Speaking on the PGA Tour's website, Lingmerth said: "Lingmerth, whose only earlier victory on the PGA Tour took place two years ago in the Memorial Tournament, had taken 65' in a row on a course that held in store fortunate recollections for him. On Saturday he was in difficulties from the start after having found his first two rounds for a Bogey at the first bunker, although he was back to 10 years after following a subtle line up to four foot at the next holes.
29-year-old was in trouble on 4th place when a stubborn drive into the sea resulted in a doubles six before a storm that smoothed the green resulted in a 90-minute lag. After the corner he let another shoot fall, because he played the tea looser, which let him back in a part of the leading, although he was in front again shortly after when Sumhays finished eleventh.
Lingmerth couldn't make up more floor - after a birdies on the 13th was balanced by a bogeys on the 15th - Summerhays couldn't get an edge after calling a 70 card game. The Levin team shot on the back of a 65 to shoot two times behind the leaders, while the Curtis Luck and Geoff Ogilvy from Australia and the Sung Kang from South Korea are in four eyes.
Maryland, the location, has good memory for the Swedish, who won an award on the Developal Web.com Tour five years ago, and is determined to get his second championship here and on the PGA Tour. Lingmerth, whose only victory on the PGA Tour two years ago was in the Memorial Tournament, found the fairway on a regular basis while his stunning puttings assisted him in making five birdies in a flawless second round.
Speaking on the PGA Tour's website, Mr President, ladies and gentlemen: "I' ve had my match quite well under my belt so far, but there are still 36 gaps to play, so I look forward to the week-end. "Putts of 15 and 25 foot gave birth to the second and third, while Lengmerth took a third in four-hole shots by potting an 18-foot turret on the fifth.
Australian, the 2006 US Open champions and former third in the rankings, had six Birdies and a bogey on the fifteenth and sixteenth holes. American Daniel Summerhays is two strokes back at six under 68, while Indian Arjun Atwal and South Korean Sung Kang chase him five strokes behind Lingmerth.
At Avenel Farm David Lingmerth finds the TPC Potomac to his taste, as a rolling launch after the opening lap of the Quicken Loans National took him into a lean leading position. In his first six wholes, the Swedish player recorded four birdie shots - even though he fired a single on his second - on his way to a five under 65, giving him a unique edge over sixers.
Maryland was the setting for Lingmerth's victory at an edition of the Developal Web.com Tour five years ago, and he acknowledged that it was a course that would bring back joyful recollections. "The whole afternoon long Mergmerth only passed a few fairly good putts on the green and a few nice ones on the green brought him to the top of the rankings.
Beginning with the rear nine, he went from a shelter to 12 foot on the opening pocket before he held his neck to drop the Putt, but immediately fell back to para after completing par-4 11. However, he then followed three consecutive birdies-the last of which on the fifteenth contained a 20-foot height puttingt-as he approached the curve at 31 after a marvelous attempt at rapprochement on May 18 with a single tap-in had failed him.
He had a fiery putting stroke when he was on the first and forth holes at 25 and 20 ft heights, respectively, but his lap ended on a tart mark after being too busy after an unpredictable drive on the 9th hole. Troy Merritt, Johnson Wagner and Daniel Summerhays as well as Nick Taylor from Canada, Sung Kang from South Korea and Marc Leishman from Australia snatch Lingmerth after four laps under para.
Martin Laird from Scotland is one step back, while Rickie Fowler, number nine in the game, made four birds, two bogeys as well as a doubles birdie, all on the back nine in a 70 degree round of standard pars.
