Rose tops Stefani in playoff at Quicken Loans National

BETHESDA, Md. — Justin Rose got his mistake out of the way one hole early and won the Quicken Loans National in a playoff on Sunday over Shawn Stefani.

Tied for the lead as he played the 18th hole at Congressional, Rose tried to hit through two trees left of the fairway and overturned the shot. It ran down a bank and into the water, and he had to hole a 15-foot bogey putt just to stay in the game.

Behind him, Stefani made bogey on the 17th and narrowly missed a birdie putt on the 18th to set up the first playoff in the eight-year history of this event.

After taking a drop because the grandstands blocked his view of the green, Stefani wanted to play his low punch to the right side of the green. His shot also had too much turn and bounded into the water.

 

LPGA

ROGERS, Ark. — Stacy Lewis made a 7-foot birdie putt on the final hole in the NW Arkansas Championship to finally win an official event in her adopted state.

The top-ranked Lewis, the Texan who played at the nearby University of Arkansas, had an unofficial win in the rain-shortened 2007 event as an amateur. On Sunday, she closed with a 6-under 65 for a one-stroke victory over Lydia Ko, Cristie Kerr, and Angela Stanford.

 

Champions Tour

PITTSBURGH — Bernhard Langer made a short birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff with Jeff Sluman to win the Senior Players Championship. He made his putt after Sluman's birdie attempt rolled just wide.
