Masters champion Scottie Scheffler won the rain-delayed RBC Heritage on Monday to continue his dominant play on the PGA Tour. Scheffler held a five-shot lead with three holes to play when the tournament was suspended due to darkness on Sunday night. He returned on Monday and made a bogey on the final hole for what officially ended up as a three-stroke victory. It was his fourth win in his last five starts and Scheffler becomes the first player in almost 40 years to win the week after the Masters. The bogey ended a streak of 68 consecutive holes of par or better. Sahith Theegala made birdie on No. 16 before closing out his round with back-to-back pars to give him sole possession of second place. Wyndham Clark was one of the golfers who managed to finish his final round before play was suspended. He made a charge with six birdies and an eagle through his first 11 holes before stumbling down the stretch to finish with a 65. He ended up tied for third with Patrick Cantlay, four strokes back. Tom Hoge was on the 18th hole when the horn sounded to stop play but he elected to finish his round rather than come back on Monday. After his tee shot sailed out-of-bounds, his fourth shot found the native area and his next shot ended up in the bunker. After his sixth shot found the green, Hoge needed three putts for a quintuple-bogey 9 that dropped him from a tie for sixth to a tie for 18th.

Billy Horschel ran off four straight birdies on his first five holes and played bogey-free the rest of the way for a two-shot win at the Corales Puntacana Championship. It was the eighth career win for Horschel but his first in almost two years. The victory earns him a spot in the PGA Championship next month and likely entry into the next $20 million PGA Tour signature event. Wesley Bryan, who got into the tournament on a sponsor exemption, led for the first 54 holes and was looking to become just the second wire-to-wire winner of the event until a bogey on No. 15 ended his chances. He finished runner-up, his best result since winning the 2017 RBC Heritage. …Taylor Pendrith notched his third top-15 result of the season and his best result since the end of January.

PGA TOUR AMERICAS

Matthew Anderson made back-to-back birdies over the final two holes for a come-from-behind win at the rain-shortened ECP Brazil Open. It is the first career victory for the Golf Canada National Team member in just his 14th start since turning pro. He became the first Canadian to win on the newly amalgamated PGA Tour Americas, which combined the Latinoamerica and PGA Tour Canada tours. The victory also moves Anderson into top spot on the season-long Fortinet Cup standings. He will earn conditional membership on the Korn Ferry Tour next year if he remains in the top two positions through the six-event Latin American swing. The tournament was shortened to 54 holes after rain delayed the start of the first round on Thursday due to unplayable conditions. …Joey Savoie picked up his second top-20 finish in three starts this season. …Jeevan Sihota recorded his third career top-25 finish as a pro

LPGA TOUR

Nelly Korda became just the third player in LPGA Tour history to win five consecutive starts with a two-stroke victory at the Chevron Championship. It’s the second major title in three years for the world’s number-one ranked player who joins Nancy Lopez and Annika Sorenstam as the only players to win five consecutive events. Korda started the final round one stroke back of the lead but vaulted to the top of the leaderboard after making birdies on two of her first four holes. She increased the lead to four with a birdie on No. 10 and despite bogeys on Nos. 11 and 15, those chasing her failed to take advantage. Maja Stark put on a late charge with birdies on her final two holes to pull within a stroke of Korda, who birdied her final hole for the two-shot victory. Lauren Coughlin made back-to-back birdies on Nos. 13 and 14 to get within two shots only to give it all back with bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes. Brooke Henderson, whose third-round 64 was tournament record and just one stroke shy of her best round at an LPGA major, had three birdies over her first six holes but a bogey on No. 2 and a double bogey on No. 4 cancelled out those gains and she ended up in a tie for third with Coughlin. It’s her eighth career top-5 finish in a major championship.

KORN FERRY TOUR

Sweden’s Tim Widing made par on the second playoff hole to defeat Patrick Cover and Steven Fisk and win the LECOM Suncoast Classic. It was his first career win and Widing became the eighth straight first-time winner to start the season. It was also the fifth straight event that had to be decided in a playoff, the longest streak in Tour history. After becoming the youngest player to make the cut on the Korn Ferry Tour, 15-year-old amateur Miles Russell finished in a tie for 20th to become the youngest player in more than 40 years to record a top-25 finish on the PGA or Korn Ferry Tours …Myles Creighton posted his second top-10 finish in his last three starts. …Étienne Papineau picks up his third top-20 result of the season

PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS

Paul Broadhurst edged David Toms by a single shot to win the Invited Celebrity Classic. It was the Englishman’s first win in five years on the Champions Tour. The tournament, which included 40 celebrities in a separate division, was shortened to 36 holes after heavy rains wiped out the second round on Saturday. Prior to Sunday, Broadhurst’s previous best finish this season was a tie for third, which also came in a rain-shortened event – the Chubb Classic in February which was won by Stephen Ames. Former tennis player Mardy Fish won the celebrity portion of the event for the second time in three years, edging former baseball player John Smoltz. Two other baseball players – Josh Donaldson and Bud Norris – finished tied for third with World Golf Hall of Fame member and former LPGA great Annika Sorenstam in fifth. There were no Canadians entered in the event.
