JPS Golf Academy News and Information
Another thrilling Players Championship, where an inspired Justin Thomas held off a gutsy Lee Westwood, offered plentiful evidence that both body and mind have to be spot on to succeed at the highest level.
There could be no doubting the state of Westwood's temperament as, for the second consecutive week, he produced a display of great heart and sporting bravery.
He was, though, undone by ageing, aching limbs that undermined the control needed to prosper in such a demanding tournament. Every other leading contender broke par in the final round while Westwood signed for a level-par 72.
That proved insufficient against an opponent who produced high quality, ruthless golf to end the rockiest spell of his otherwise brilliant career. Thomas came within inches of hitting every green in regulation in a stunning display of ball striking.
The 27-year-old had little cause to feel fondness towards 2021 until this victory, his biggest since winning the US PGA Championship four years ago - his solitary major so far. In January on-course microphones picked up his homophobic slur while competing in Hawaii.
Four-time major winner McIlroy failed to defend his Players Championship title as he missed the cut on Friday after finishing at 10 over par.
The Northern Irishman, 31, says he has tried to add speed to his swing in order to hit the ball further.
"I'd be lying if I said it wasn't anything to do with what Bryson did at the US Open," said McIlroy.
"I think a lot of people saw that and were like, 'if this is the way they're going to set golf courses up in the future, it helps'. It really helps.
"I thought being able to get some more speed is a good thing, and maybe to the detriment of my swing, I got there, but I just need to maybe rein it back in a little bit."
World number six DeChambeau, renowned for his big-hitting approach, won his first major at the US Open in September.
The American's average driving distance is 323.5 yards and he powered his way to victory at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational - where McIlroy's four-over 76 on Sunday left him eight shots behind the winner - and is in contention for the Players at Sawgrass.
McIlroy has not won a tournament since November 2019 - or a major since 2014 - and has dropped to 11th in the world rankings.
Tiger Woods has returned home and will work on "getting stronger every day" following the car crash that left him with significant injuries.
The American, 45, needed surgery after suffering a fractured leg and shattered ankle in the crash.
The 15-time major champion was moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for follow-up procedures on 27 February.
On Wednesday he tweeted: "Happy to report that I am back home continuing my recovery."
He added: "I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks.
"I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger everyday."
Woods, who was recovering from back surgery at the time of his accident, was found unconscious and with his face and chin covered in blood at the scene.
Los Angeles police said there was no evidence Woods had been impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.
County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods survived "what would otherwise have been a fatal crash" because the interior of his vehicle had remained largely intact.
After starting the day tied for 11th, the 26-year-old's closing two-under-par 70 moved her up the field.
Her five-under-par total left the Cavan woman 10 shots behind winner US player Austin Ernst who finished five ahead of compatriot Jennifer Kupcho.
Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow finished tied 34th on one over.
Meadow shot a closing 72 which included two birdies and two bogeys.
Maguire fought back brilliantly from two opening bogeys as she carded three successive birdies from the fifth.
Two further bogeys and a birdie left her level par for the day standing on the 17th tee but Maguire birdied the two closing holes to guarantee her top-10 finish as she shared sixth with American Danielle Kang.
The 26-year-old Irishwoman's only previous LPGA top-10 came at the ISPS Handa Vic Open in Australia last year when she shared fourth place.
