Ben Martin nearly lapped the field in winning the Mylan Classic, polishing off his week with a 4-under-par 34-33=68 to finish five clear of Kelly Kraft.

Martin extended his lead early with birdies on three of his first five holes before giving back bogeys on the sixth and seventh holes at Southpointe GC. After seven pars, he chipped in for eagle on the par-4 15th. He erased a 3-putt bogey on the par-4 16th with a tap in birdie on the 17th, then ended his day with a short birdie on the par-4 18th after a precise 9-iron. He finishes the week at 17-under 267, 10 shots clear of third place. Already a winner at the United Leasing Championship earlier this summer, the Clemson product's second win moves him to second on the Tour money list. Should he overtake Michael Putnam down the stretch for the top spot, he would be fully exempt on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR and would not be subject to the reshuffle.

Bud Cauley has surgery on Sept. 12 for a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Cauley opened the Tour Finals with a victory. It solidified a spot in the reshuffle on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 -- he'll start in the No. 1 position -- but things turned for the worse not long thereafter. After missing the cut in the second leg, he went under the knife on Sept. 12, and then alerted his followers on Twitter and Instagram as follows, "real disappointed to say I torn my labrum last wed but out of surgery and everything went great. will be out for a while but already can't wait to be back." On Sept. 26, Cauley added, "it's been 14 days since surgery and were up to 5 pound curls haha the wing is getting better & stronger everyday." He hasn't mentioned a timetable for a return to competition, but it wouldn't be surprising if we didn't see him again until 2015. With his status secure, he has no reason to rush back. This is a blow to gamers planning to piggyback his recent uptick in form.

Victor Dubuisson and Zach Johnson halved the final singles match of the Ryder Cup.

The outcome of the Ryder Cup had already been decided, but let the record books show the final tally to be 16½-11½ in favor of the Europeans. Dubuisson was a Ryder Cup rookie, though he didn't play like one this week. While he only competed in three sessions, his 2-0-1 record bodes well for his future in this event. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Johnson was a disappointing 0-2-1 for the U.S. squad. The next edition of the Ryder Cup will take place at Hazeltine National Golf Course in Chaska, Minnesota, in 2016. Europe will be the three-time defending champs.

Sergio Garcia heated up late in his Ryder Cup singles match with Jim Furyk and walked away with a 1-up victory.

In one of the closer matches of the session and a repeat of the final outcome of their tilt at Medinah two years ago, neither player led by more than one hole at Gleneagles today. Furyk was up after the completion of nine holes to Garcia's four, but the Spaniard was ahead after the only one that mattered -- the last. Garcia stepped on the gas late in his round, circling birdies at the 14th and 15th holes and going ahead for good with an eagle at the par-5 16th. He ended with a 2-1-1 record while Furyk fell to 1-3-0. This moved the score to 15½-9½ in favor of the Europeans, who have already clinched the Cup.

With his 4-and-3 win over Keegan Bradley in singles, Jamie Donaldson goes in the books as the man that secured victory for Europe in the 40th Ryder Cup.

The defending champs needed 14 points to retain. With the match sitting 13½-9½ as Donaldson and Bradley played the drivable, par-4 14th, their pars moved the American to dormie, thus clinching the remaining half-point for Europe. However, no one seemed to be aware of it after Donaldson was conceded the 4. The visual evidence came in the wake of a brilliant approach at the par-4 15th. The Welshman stuck his second to virtual tap-in range. Bradley also birdied, but he needed an eagle to extend what was already a lame-duck match. Europe led 14½-9½ at the time of the impromptu celebration. The rookie went 3-1-0 at Gleneagles. Bradley finished a disappointing and surprising 1-2-0.

Martin Kaymer has no problem in defeating Bubba Watson 4 and 2 in singles at the 40th Ryder Cup.

Watson didn't have it today, but it may not have mattered against the German, who recorded an eagle and five birdies at Gleneagles today. After both opened birdie-par, Kaymer won four consecutive holes to stake a 4-up lead through six. Watson won the par-4 seventh with par, but Kaymer responded with a birdie win at the par-4 eighth. They halved the next six holes to move the lefty to dormie. Watson won the par-4 15th with a birdie, but Kaymer ended the drama with a dramatic chip-in from a side-hill lie in the rough beside the green at the par-5 16th. After the eagle disappeared, Europe led 13-7. For the week, Kaymer went 1-1-2. Watson settled at 0-3-0.

Patrick Reed handed Henrik Stenson a 1-up loss in singles action at the Ryder Cup.

Looking at the American roster when the tournament began, Reed had to be considered one of the biggest wild cards on the squad. He relished the stage, quieting the crowd at Gleneagles with a "shh" after a par save on the seventh hole and going nuts when he won the next hole with birdie. He hit the par-5 18th in two and secured the birdie, while Stenson missed a short birdie that would have halved the hole and the match. Instead, the full point goes to the visitors who now trail 12-7. When it was all said and done, Reed compiled a 3-0-1 record and netted more points than any other American this week. Stenson wasn't a slouch either, going 3-1-0 for the tournament.

Rory McIlroy disposed of Rickie Fowler 5 and 4 in singles at the Ryder Cup to put the first point on the board today.

McIlroy was absolutely on fire, recording seven birdies and an eagle while dropping just one hole the entire match. With the Europeans only needing four (of 12) points in the final session to retain the Ryder Cup, the Ulsterman has the momentum headed in the right direction for the home team. Europe now leads 11-6. McIlroy ends the week at Gleneagles with a 2-1-2 record, with his wins coming in the final two sessions. Despite competing in all five sessions, Fowler was unable to collect a win and finishes the week 0-2-3.

Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy conquered Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan 3 and 2 in foursomes at the Ryder Cup.

Garcia and McIlroy led the entire match, but the margin was 1 up for most of the way. With birdies on 14 and 16, they secured the point. Garcia improves to 1-1-1 and McIlroy now sits at 1-1-2, while Furyk and Mahan both fall to 1-2-0. For the second straight day, Europe won foursomes 3½-½. Today's domination boosted the overall score to 10-6 in favor of the defending champs. A four-point margin has been overcome in the past, most recently at Medinah in 2012. The U.S. has its work cut out, as the Yanks need 14½ points to win the Ryder Cup. The Euros need just 14 to retain it.

Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter battled back to halve their four-ball match with Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker, closing out the third session of the Ryder Cup.

This was easily the closest match of the session, and the only one that advanced past the 16th hole at Gleneagles. The European team led 2 up at the turn, but the Americans won three of the next four holes with birdies to take a 1-up lead. The 14th and 15th holes were halved with birdies, including an improbably hole-out by Poulter on the 15th, before a birdie by the Brit on 16 squared the match. Fowler converted a critical par save on the par-3 17th and the final hole was halved with birdie. Fowler and Walker have now halved each of their three matches, while McIlroy moves to 1-0-2 and Poulter improves to 0-1-1. Poulter will sit out the foursomes session. At the end of three sessions, the Europeans lead 6½-5½.

Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth blew out Thomas Björn and Martin Kaymer 5 and 3 for their second four-ball win in the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

The Ryder Cup rookies are proving to be quite the dynamic duo, answering their 5-and-4 win in the first session with another blowout. It wasn't easy early, as Björn and Kaymer were 2 up through four holes. Reed and Spieth answered with seven birdies over the final 11 holes to smother the European flame. That draws the Americans to within one point overall at 6-5, with the U.S. squad leading the only match left on the course in the third session. Reed and Spieth spilled the beans in their interview after the match that they will go out in foursomes for the fourth session. Captain Tom Watson caught plenty of criticism for benching the kids in foursomes yesterday and has decided not to make the same mistake twice.
Sep 27 - 7:22 AM

Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson overpowered Matt Kuchar and Bubba Watson 3 and 2 to kick off four-ball action in the third session.

The American squad played well enough to win under most circumstances, securing nine birdies, but Rose and Stenson just weren't having any of it. Kuchar and Watson were 2 up through six holes. On the par-4 seventh hole the coffee kicked in for the Euros and they birdied the next 10 holes to flip the script. Despite shooting 9-under-par, Kuchar and Watson each fall to 0-2-0 for the week, while Rose and Stenson are a dominant 3-0-0. With the Rose/Stenson point on the board, the Europeans now lead the Ryder Cup 6-3.
