Garrick Porteous defeated Toni Hakula 6 and 5 in the final of the Amateur Championship at Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club in Kent, England.

It was all Porteous in the scheduled 36-hole finale. He held a 3-up margin after 18 in testing conditions before piling on. The 23-year-old from England wrapped up four years at the University of Tennessee in 2012. He arrived at the 118th edition of British Am slotted 39th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. Finland's Hakula ranked 209th. One of the perks of winning this title is a berth into The Open Championship at Muirfield on July 18-21. Porteous must remain an amateur to compete in the major.

Ian Poulter fired a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to tie for 23rd at 7-under 277, failing to crack the top 70 in the FedExCup Standings.

With only the top 70 advancing to the BMW Championship, Poulter's season came to an end at TPC Boston. He finished 78th in the FedExCup standings. The others that failed to advance are: Robert Streb (71st); Ryo Ishikawa (72nd); Jason Kokrak (73rd); David Hearn (74th); Justin Hicks (75th); Ben Martin (76th); Scott Langley (77th); Brendon Steele (79th); Stewart Cink (80th); Bo Van Pelt (81st); Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño (82nd); Shawn Stefani (83rd); Scott Stallings (84th); Scott Brown (85th); Brandt Snedeker (86th); Vijay Singh (87th); Danny Lee (88th); Luke Donald (89th); Jason Dufner (90th); Brendon de Jonge (91st); Jeff Overton (92nd); Michael Putnam (93rd); Andrew Svoboda (94th); Paul Casey (95th); John Huh (96th); Billy Hurley III (97th); Pat Perez (98th); Robert Garrigus (99th); Andres Romero (100th).

Chris Kirk spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 15-under 269, good for a two-stroke victory over a trio of runners-up.

Kirk began the week ranked 17th in the FedExCup standings, but now ascends to the top spot. His lap around TPC Boston featured five birdies and 13 pars. Three of those birdies were of notable length, falling from 10'11", 22'8" and 13'2" on the ninth, 13th and 16th holes, respectively. The putter was the key to his week as he ranked fifth in strokes gained. He also managed to play his final 39 holes without a blemish, which never hurts. With his third PGA TOUR victory (and second this season) coming as the perfect time, he now finds himself squarely on the bubble in terms of Ryder Cup consideration. Captain Tom Watson will announce his three captain's picks tomorrow, and it stands to reason that Kirk, who finished the season 14th in the Ryder Cup standings, will be on the short list of candidates.

Steven Bowditch lit up TPC Boston for a 6-under-par 29-36=65 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to end the tournament at 2-under 282.

The Aussie was absolutely on fire out of the gates, circling two eagles and three birdies on his front nine. The putter was a big reason he jumped out to the fast start, holing birdies from 16'8" and 38'8" on the par-4 first and fifth holes to go with eagles from 10'2" and 14'11" on the par-5 second and par-4 fourth holes. He cooled on the back, with eight pars only interrupted by a bogey at the par-4 14th. Bowditch entered the week 44th in the FedExCup standings and looks to enter the BMW Championship in a very similar spot.

Bud Cauley spun a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Hotel Fitness Championship to claim a one-stroke victory over Colt Knost at 20-under 268.

With this victory, Cauley has locked up his full status for the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season via the Web.com Tour Finals. He would have enjoyed conditional status, finishing 143rd in the FedExCup standings, but he is now in much better shape. This is the second consecutive year he dropped down to the Web.com Tour Finals after failing to keep his PGA TOUR card, having graduated last year as well. The Alabama prodcut circled seven birdies, with four of those coming on par 5s, at Sycamore Hills GC in the finale. While he didn't rank inside the top 10 in any notable statistical categories, the key to his week was likely limiting the mistakes. He tied for fourth with just five bogeys, and nothing worse, for the week. He also shared sixth with 21 birdies and his two eagles were tied for second. He will now set his sights on winning the Web.com Tour Finals money list in order to be exempt from all reshuffles on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR.

Patrick Reed swallowed a third-round 11-over-par 38-44=82 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to miss the 54-hole cut on the number at 5-over 218.

Reed was unable to find a single birdie at TPC Boston, squaring three bogeys and four double bogeys. Joining him without a tee time for the final round are Brendon de Jonge (218), Andres Romero (219), Scott Brown (220), Matt Jones (223), Freddie Jacobson (224) and Matt Every (227).

Russell Henley took control of the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round and assumes the lead at 12-under 201.

Henley caught fire on Sunday, circling seven birdies and surrendering just one bogey at TPC Boston. Three of his birdies stood above the others. They fell from 30'5" on the par-3 eighth, 19'10" on the par-4 13th and 12'6" on the par-4 17th. The Georgia Bulldog has been a spotty player this season. While he won The Honda Classic, he has just one other top 10 to go with 12 missed cuts. He's developing the reputation of a player that can get hot in brief spurts, so he is a legitimate threat to close out his third PGA TOUR win in just his sophomore season on TOUR. He began the week 62nd in the FedExCup standings and would crack the top five with a victory.

Hennie Otto cruised to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his final round of the 71° OPEN D'ITALIA and recorded a two-stroke victory.

The 38-year-old South African held the outright lead after 36 and 54 holes at Circolo Golf Torino's La Mandria Course before closing out his week at 20-under 268 with an eagle and 23 birdies against three bogeys and one double. It's his third European Tour title and first since 2011. Otto's breakthrough victory occurred in the Italian Open at Castello di Tolcinasco Golf & Country Club in 2008. David Howell took runner-up honors today two strokes adrift. The Englishman blistered the host course for an opening eagle-3 and seven birdies en route to a bogey-free 63. And in his last bid to give Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley reason to get excited, Scotland's Stephen Gallacher finished alone in third place three swings back following a bogey-free 65.

Robert Garrigus carded a pair of 2-over-par 73s at the Deutsche Bank Championship and missed the cut on the number.

While the result is the same, not all MCs are alike. Take Garrigus, for example. After sitting 3-over on the round through 13 holes, he holed out for birdie from the fringe 18 yards away at the par-4 fifth. He then drilled a 33-footer for par at the par-4 sixth to retain momentum. Birdies at 7 and 8 ensued (the latter from 10'7") to create a buffer entering his last hole of the round. Alas, after landing his approach into the par-4 ninth 44'2" from the cup, Garrigus four-putted for double bogey. Not only did it put an end to his chances at TPC Boston, but he's done in the Playoffs after arriving 88th in points. Of the 92 golfers that completed 36 holes, only 12 missed the cut. The others: 146--Brendon Todd; Harris English ... 147--2010 champ Charley Hoffman; Kevin Na; Stuart Appleby; Justin Hicks ... 148--Brandt Snedeker; Ángel Cabrera; Erik Compton ... 149--Ryo Ishikawa ... 150--Ben Martin.

Brendan Steele buried a walk-off birdie putt from 27'7" at the par-5 18th hole in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to survive the cut on the number.

Steele was down and up all day en route to an even-par 36-35=71. He traded four birdies with four bogeys and reached the midpoint in 3-over 145. While the final birdie was the most compelling, he also converted attempts from 45'9" and 25'6" at Nos. 9 and 16, respectively. Steele's Playoffs life hinged on that last one, though, as he entered the week ranked 76th in FedExCup points. The heavy lifting has just begun, however, as 80 golfers scored 145 or lower. So, another cut of low 70 and ties will fall once 54 holes are complete. It's the second time in as many weeks that the MDF provision is invoked. Prior to The Barclays, the last time it was needed in the Playoffs was at the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championship.

Jason Day posted a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, reaching the midpoint in 8-under 134, good for a share of the overnight lead with Ryan Palmer.

Day continues to struggle with his irons. While he split 12 (of 14) fairways at TPC Boston today, he landed only 11 greens in regulation. He swallowed three bogeys, all on his inward nine, but counterbalanced with six birdies, including five going out. The set featured conversions from 38'9" and 15'2" at the sixth and seventh holes, respectively. He also drilled home a bogey try from 10'11" at the par-4 12th where his approach resulted in a penalty for an unplayable lie.
