Most spectators at the Palmetto Championship at Congaree on Saturday had already retreated to their cars and a dry return to their homes or hotel rooms. A man on a shuttle bus racing the raindrops made his way to one of the parking lots.

“Who’d have thought we’d have this out here,” the man said to fellow riders, “out in the middle of nowhere?”

He was referring not to the summer storms routine for

No matter how things turned out on Sunday at Muirfield Village, the 2021 Memorial will always be remembered as the tournament Jon Rahm should have won. The 26-year-old Spaniard walked off the 18th hole on Saturday having played arguably the best round of golf ever in a PGA Tour event, shooting an eight-under 64 to take a six-shot lead, only to be informed the COVID-19 test he took earlier in the day had come up positive. Tour officials informed Rahm he’d have to withdraw from the event just as he was trying to become the only golfer other than Tiger

Repetition throughout the week had Masters primed for the strong final round.

“The practice round was the first time I’ve played out here since probably

It was over fairly early for Bernd Wiesberger, which made for a less than thrilling finish to the European Tour’s Made in HimmerLand tournament but no less satisfying a result for the 35-year-old Austrian. Wiesberger started the round with a one-stroke lead, but with seven birdies in an 11-hole stretch at the HimmerLand course in Farse, Denmark, he cruised to a five-stroke wire-to-wire victory over Italy’s Guido Migliozzi by posting a closing 64 for a 21-under 263.

Without the drama, Wiesberger could enjoy the moment and appreciate its meaning. This was his eighth career title on the European Tour but
