Recapping the Weekend That Was


This past weekend turned out to be a crazy one for the golf world, highlighted by a Sunday that was as special as any in 2011. What happened? Well, let's hop right into it ...

Luke Donald takes down Lee Westwood in a playoff of the No. 1 and No. 2 in the world -- Don't get used to something like that, because it probably won't happen for a very long time, but the BMW Championship, the biggest event of the weekend, came down to a playoff between Donald and Westwood, and ended when Donald hit a great approach shot to the 18th hole and Westwood ... well, his approach was just a little wetter. It's the second win for Donald, and the biggest of his career, and it came a few days after he said he'd probably do it, so even better.

An unlikely rookie took home the Byron Nelson -- Earlier this year, in Palm Springs, I went to get dinner and was greeted by two rookies on the PGA Tour. One was a flashy young stud that was going to take the tour by storm, making Golfweek covers and forcing old journalists to salivate at his potential. The other was a quieter, more polite kid that not a lot of people had heard of. That kid? Keegan Bradley, and after a fantastic start to his year, the 24-year-old toughed it out this weekend in Dallas, and won in a playoff, with a reaction that will forever live in random golfer infamy. It was a great story, highlighted by this awesome tweet.

Mariajo Uribe takes the Brazil Cup -- Talk about a nice little payday for Uribe, a player that had never won any big event before Sunday. Two rounds of golf in Rio De Janerio and the 21-year-old took home six figures after she closed with a 66.

Tom Watson takes his sixth Champions Tour major -- Maybe you can't count Champions Tour majors on a list of incredible accomplishments, but Watson's playoff win on Sunday at the Senior PGA was his sixth of his career, and coupled with eight PGA Tour majors, means he has 14 for his career. Watson was steady, and the playoff win showed that at 61, he can still play as good as any of those guys out there.
