US Women’s Open Golf 2021: Yuka Saso Becomes Joint-Youngest Winner in Event History
After topping Nasa Hataoka in a playoff at the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open on Sunday, Yuka Saso (19 years, 11 months, 17 days) matched Inbee Park as the youngest winner in the history of the event.
At one point, it appeared as though it was Lexi Thompson’s tournament to lose, but her lead evaporated, as she shot five over during the course of the final seven holes.
As a result, Thompson didn’t even take part in the two-hole aggregate/sudden-death playoff that crowned Saso as the champion at the Olympic Club Lake Course in San Francisco.
Patrick Cantlay, without Jon Rahm, wins the Memorial with an invisible asterisk
As golf attempts to get back to normal, you would have been hard-pressed to think things were not as they always were Sunday at Muirfield Village Golf Club for the final round of the Memorial Tournament.
Jack Nicklaus, tournament founder, host and 18-time major champion, took up his usual spot in the CBS-TV broadcast tower. He was there beside the 18th green to greet winner Patrick Cantlay, who outlasted Collin Morikawa in playoff. A robust crowd stood near the 18th green.
