The Daily: Langer Wins Boeing, PGA Tour Cards, Ryder Cup, More


In today’s PGW Daily, we talk Ryder Cup, Champions Tour, and LPGA.  We also show you why Patrick Reed is so excited, and why being Gary Player isn’t so bad.

Putt of the Year

Jason Day’s 71-foot putt at the 15th hole of Sunday’s final round is one of the best putts you will ever see. Day showed why he leads the tour in strokes gained: putting.

Champions Tour Update

Bernhard Langer has been destroying the Champions Tour this year, and added another trophy to his season arsenal. Langer went on a back nine birdie binge at the Boeing Classic, going under par on 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, and 18 to sneak into a playoff with Kevin Sutherland and Woody Austin.

Langer birded the first playoff hole to win. He now leads the Charles Schwab Cup standings by nearly $800,000. The gap between Langer and #2 Miguel Angel Jimenez, is larger than the gap between Jimenez and #27 Mike Goodes.

European Ryder Cup Update
European Ryder Cup Captain Darren Clarke is set to make his three captain’s picks tomorrow. Here are a few of the favorties:

Russell Knox:
The Scot won twice on the PGA Tour this year. He ranks 10th on the World Points List.

Martin Kaymer: The two-time major winner fell just short on both points lists. He finished T7 at the PGA Championship and T15 at The Olympics.

Lee Westwood: Has 23 career victories, but famously no majors. Finished T2 at The Masters. Currently 9th in Race to Dubai Rankings.

Luke Donald: Donald’s name has floated today as a potential surprise pick for Clarke. Has played well in the U.S. as of late, but has not finished higher than T27 in any European Tour event this season.
