After the cut on Friday at the Canadian Open, Rory McIlroy was 5 strokes off the lead. Then he put his whole game in gear and won the event by 7 strokes. What was a very packed leaderboard on Sunday morning before play started, McIlroy put any idea of a competitive event when he birdied 5 of the first 7 holes to take a 3 stroke lead. He set a new course record with his 22 under 258 – 5 strokes better than the previous record.

A the LPGA tournament – ShopRite Classic – it looked like the Jeongeun Lee6 looked like she was going to post back to back wins. However, that was not going to happen thanks to Lexi Thompson who came from behind to win. Thompson was playing in two groups ahead and began play on the 18th being tied. With a strong wind coming from behind, she hit her drive into the left rough 190 from the green on the par 5. With a Wedge (yes a Wedge with a tail wind), she hit the 190 yard shot to set up an eagle putt. She drained the eagle to take a 2 stroke lead. Lee6 could only manage a par on the 17th hole par 3 to stay 2 behind. She also was able to reach the 18th in two but was to far away for a viable eagle try. She finished with a birdie and 1 stroke behind.
