In Texas, after the defeat in the opening match, also happened for Jon Rahm. In Austin, therefore, convincing evidence for the big world championships.
The American Scheffler, number 1 and reigning champion, dominated (5&4 the final result) the meeting with the Swede Alex Noren, forced to give up after 14 holes. Tough victory for the Northern Irishman McIlroy. Third in the world ranking, he stemmed the competition (2 up) from Denny McCarthy thanks to two decisive birdies made respectively at 16 and 18.
Rahm redeems himself. The Spaniard, second in the world, defeated (4&3) the American Keith Mitchell. And now the chances of qualifying will be played out in the decisive match against Billy Horschel (winner of the tournament in 2021) who, after a draw with Mitchell, beat Fowler 3&2.
More bad news for European players: Tyrrell Hatton, Viktor Hovland, Victor Perez, Shane Lowry, Sepp Straka and Tommy Fleetwood can already consider themselves eliminated from the competition. Of the initial 64 competitors, divided into 16 groups of 4 players, only the winners of their respective groups will be admitted to the round of 16 which will take place together with the quarterfinals tomorrow, with the semifinals and finals scheduled for Sunday.
In a $20 million event, $3.5 million will go to the winner. The PGA Tour is a men's professional golf tour played primarily in the United States. The PGA Tour became an independent entity of the PGA in 1968. Prior to 1968, this championship was the PGA of America's Tournament Players Division.
The PGA Tour also operates the Champions Tour, for players 50 and over, and the Web.com Tour, a second-tier championship. In 1981, the PGA challenged the PGA Tour's use of the PGA acronym. At the end of August 1981, the championship was renamed TPA Tour for Tournament Players Association, but as of March 1982, the PGA Tour regained its name following the settlement of the dispute with the PGA.
The PGA Tour does not organize the Ryder Cup, contested by team, and the four Grand Slam tournaments. However, these last appointments are on the calendar. The PGA Tour is also not a federation managing golf in the United States.
This role falls to the United States Golf Association. The other tournaments on the calendar, on the other hand, are organized by the PGA Tour.
