McIlroy pulls out of RBC Heritage for unspecified reason
World No. 3 Rory McIlroy withdrew from this week's RBC Heritage, the PGA Tour announced Monday.
Jay Onrait was joined by TSN Golf analysts Bob Weeks and Graham DeLaet to get their thoughts on Jon Rahm's performance at the Masters, and what lessons Brooks Koepka can come with away after failing to close out his 54-hole lead.
Brooks Koepka will no doubt hear the same murmured joke no matter where he goes in the coming days and weeks. If only the Masters was 54 holes. Like those tournaments on the Saudi-back LIV Golf circuit. If that was the case, Koepka would've been wearing a green jacket on the 18th green at Augusta National, rather than making the dejected march from there to the locker room.
Two years after shocking the world and winning the 2021 PGA Championship at age 50, Phil Mickelson carded a 7-under 65 Sunday at the Masters -- his best-ever final round in the event. Mickelson's day was the lowest round in Masters history by a player age 50 or older.
Brooks Koepka held steady in the cold air and was potentially spared a big number by the rain-softened grass at Augusta National, finishing the third round at the Masters on Sunday morning with a 1-over 73 to keep a two-shot lead over Jon Rahm.
Gaining confidence and a bit of swagger in his step, Brooks Koepka breezed around Augusta National without a bogey on Friday for a 5-under 67, giving him the lead over U.S. Amateur champion Sam Bennett and allowing him to take shelter as the weather became a force. Round 2 of the Masters will resume at 8am ET/5am PT on TSN3/4/5, TSN.ca, the TSN App and TSN+.
When three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson walked off the 18th green after the second round at Augusta National Golf Club on Friday, he was 4 under after 36 holes and beating defending champion Scottie Scheffler and world No. 2 golfer Rory McIlroy.
When Viktor Hovland learned he’d be playing the first two rounds of the Masters with Tiger Woods, his heart started to race and his anxiety level spiked. “My heart kind of went a little bit further up in the throat,” Hovland said, knowing the inherent pressure of playing alongside the five-time champion Thursday and in front of the gigantic crowds that follow Woods.
