Matteo Manassero emerged with the victory at the BMW PGA Championship following a three-way playoff.

The 20-year-old Italian converted a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th hole the fourth time is was played during the playoff. Simon Khan rinsed his approach to open the door for Manassero's fourth career victory on the European Tour. Khan recorded a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 to join the playoff that also included Marc Warren (3-under 35-34=69). All three concluded regulation in 10-under 278. Warren was eliminated on the first extra hole after an unplayable lie and another penalty for finding water with his fourth. Manassero (3-under 32-37=69) and Khan went birdie-par-birdie until the clincher. Fifty-four leader Alejandro Cañizares (even-par 35-37=72) shared fourth place with fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiménez (5-under 33-34=67) at 9-under 279. Manassero will climb inside the top 30 of the Official World Golf Ranking with the victory. It also exempts him into the U.S. Open although he would have qualified anyway via the OWGR.

With an aggregate of 7-under-par 67-70=137 at Walton Heath in Surrey, England, Simon Khan medaled at today's 36-hole sectional qualifier for the U.S. Open.

Unfazed by losing on the fourth hole in Sunday's playoff at the BMW PGA Championship, the Englishman secured one of 12 tee times reserved for next month's 156-man field at Merion. Khan opened on the Old Course before taking on the New Course today. Paul Casey (6-under 74-64=138) and Jaco Van Zyl (71-67=138) shared runner-up honors. Morten Ørum Madsen finished along in fourth at 5-under 139. Marcus Fraser, Peter Hedblom and Eddie Pepperell tied for fifth at 4-under 140. The final five berths were decided in a playoff among six golfers that finished regulation at 3-under 141n. David Howell, José Maria Olazábal and John Parry advanced after one extra hole. The final two slots went to Tano Goya and Chris Doak after three more holes. Rikard Karlberg was the odd man out, so he'll serve as first alternate. The final sectionals will be held at 11 sites in the U.S. on Monday, June 3.

Hideki Matsuyama completed the 36-hole U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Japan in 8-under-par 67-65=132, good for medalist honors and one of five berths into the major.

Matsuyama offset one bogey with nine birdies to lead the small contingent gathered at the West Course at Otone Country Club in Bando in the Ibaraki Prefecture of Japan. Of the 33 originally entered, only 20 submitted two scores. Jung-Gon Hwang turned in a pair of 68s for runner-up honors four strokes adrift of Matsuyama. Yui Ueda shot 3-under 65-72=137 for third place. The final two spots reserved at Merion were determined in a 3-for-2 playoff in which Hiroyuki Fujita (2-under 68-70=138) and Yoshinobu Tsukada (72-66=138) eliminated Masanori Kobayashi (69-69=138). Incidentally, since turning pro in April, Matsuyama has won once, finished second twice and added a T10 on the Japan Golf Tour. Impressive but not surprisingly, he sits atop the circuit's money list.

With his share of seventh place at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Tim Clark rose seven spots to 46th in the Official World Golf Ranking and earned an exemption into The Open Championship.

It was the qualifier within the tournament in Fort Worth. The top 50 in the latest OWGR gained entry into the major if not already eligible. Clark was the only golfer to slide inside the bubble, but six others also qualified. They are: Jason Day (25th), Bill Haas (31st), Henrik Stenson (34th), Kevin Streelman (36th), D.A. Points (47th) and Michael Thompson (49th). Fredrik Jacobson closed out Colonial with a 75 to finish T35. As a result, he slipped to 51st in the OWGR and remains ineligible for The Open. He's 0.0015 points back of Ryan Moore, who was already exempt into the field at Muirfield.

Ian Poulter was one of 26 golfers to earn an exemption into the U.S. Open via the updated Official World Golf Ranking.

The top 60 following this weekend's action around the globe received tee times at Merion if they didn't already have one. At 16th in the OWGR, Poulter ranked highest among those not already eligible. The remaining qualifiers are: Peter Hanson (23rd), Jason Day (25th), Branden Grace (30th), Bill Haas (31st), Henrik Stenson (34th), Thorbjørn Olesen (35th), Kevin Streelman (36th), Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño (37th), Francesco Molinari (38th), Jamie Donaldson (42nd), David Lynn (43rd), Paul Lawrie (44th), Nicolas Colsaerts (45th), Tim Clark (46th), D.A.

Boo Weekley fired at flags all day in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and picked up his third PGA TOUR victory with a 4-under-par 33-33=66.

Weekley was fearless with the irons, landing 13 GIR and frequently giving himself close looks at birdie. He converted six of those attempts, but missed two birdie efforts inside four feet over his final four holes. Fortunately for him, he wouldn't need the extra cushion. En route to a 14-under 266, he ranked inside the top 10 in driving accuracy, GIR and putting average. This is his third PGA TOUR win and first at a venue other than Harbour Town, where he captured the Heritage in 2007 and 2008. With this victory, he is now exempt into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his final round of the 74th Senior PGA Championship, Kouki Idoki recorded a two-stroke victory.

The 50-and-older circuit is known as a land of second chances, but it's also a platform for some of the world's lesser-known seniors to thrive. Idoki is 51 years of age. He's a two-time winner on the Japan Golf Tour, but he had competed in just one PGA TOUR-sanctioned event before this week (2012 Senior Open Championship). He started the finale at Bellerive Golf Club five strokes back of 54-hole leader Kenny Perry and posted 11-under 273. Perry stumbled on his inward nine with a double bogey at 13 and bogeys at 16 and 17. A long-range birdie at the last merely clinched co-runner-up honors with local native Jay Haas at 9-under 275. Perry closed with a 72. Idoki is now fully exempt on the Champions Tour. Today's victory also earns him an exemption into the PGA Championship at Oak Hill this August.

Zach Johnson picked up his fifth top 10 in as many years in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a final-round 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his title defense.

Johnson picked up five birdies, surrendering just one bogey, on his last lap around Colonial CC. He opened his round with back-to-back birdies, each inside five feet, then tacked on a third at the par-4 seventh from 11'8" before turning to the back nine bogey-free. He suffered his only bogey of the day with a three putt at the par-4 15th, but bounced back with a 10'6" birdie at 16 and an 18'5" birdie at 17 before parring the 18th to end his week at 12-under 268. With that, he leads in the clubhouse but is second in real time to Boo Weekley who has four holes to play. This is his first top 10 of the season.

Michael Putnam fired a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Mexico Championship to claim the second Web.com Tour win of his career, solidifying his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card in the process.

Putnam circled seven birdies and an eagle to just three bogeys at El Bosque Golf Club in the finale. He ends the week at 13-under 64-72-73-66=275 in a tournament that was impacted by poor weather in each of the first three rounds. This week's result is the culmination of excellent play all season on the Web.com Tour. He picked up four top 10s in his six most recent starts, with a T2 in South Georgia the previous highlight. This marks his second Web.com Tour win, joining a 2010 triumph at the Utah Championship. With this victory, he assumes the top spot on the money list.

Kevin Na is not listed in the published field of this week's Memorial.

Na hasn't competed since a solo 59th-place finish at the Masters. In fact, that remains his only start in the last 11 weeks. He had withdrawn early from the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a back injury, but no news has surfaced since to indicate that he's dealing with the same problem. He was eligible for the Memorial for finishing inside the top 70 on the money list in 2012.

Scott Stallings made a run at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial title in the final round with his 4-under-par 29-37=66, but a late double bogey likely ended his chances at a third TOUR win.

He was sizzling at the start of his round, circling six birdies without a blemish on his first nine holes to take the lead at 13-under. He maintained it when he erased a bogey at 10 with a birdie at 11, but his round fell apart at the par-4 15th. After missing the green long, he duffed a chip into a greenside bunker and took two shots to get out before holing a 6'3" putt for a double bogey. Stallings would par in to become the first in the clubhouse at 11-under 269, which is two strokes behind Boo Weekley who has six holes left to play.
May 26 - 4:34 PM

Franklin Corpening blitzed Colonial Country Club for an 8-under-par 31-31=62 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The Web.com Tour player is fresh off a T3 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am where he led at the half-way point a week ago. He received a spot into the field for his first PGA TOUR event this week via past champion vote and did not disappoint. After opening with rounds of 68, 70 and 72, he circled nine birdies to just one bogey in his last lap around Colonial despite hitting just 13 GIR. A 1.385 putting average picked up any slack from his irons. At the time of his posting, he was tied for 10th with the leaders yet to tee off. He holed a 15'6" putt on the final hole to end the week at 8-under 272. Though it's a long shot, should he finish the round inside the top 10 he would earn a spot into the field at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
