European PGA Tour
LUSS, Scotland — This time, Phil Mickelson got a do-over after hitting a wayward tee shot at the 72nd hole. The next one was even worse. A faulty driver cost Lefty his first PGA European Tour win, as Gregory Havret rallied to win the Scottish Open on the first playoff hole. Mickelson bogeyed three of his last five holes at Loch Lomond, including the 18th twice. Havret qualified for his first major, securing the win with an up-and-down from a greenside bunker. He sank a 6-footer for par in the playoff, then was doused with champagne by Thomas Levet. Havret closed with a 3-under 68 to match Mickelson (69) at 14-under 270. Ernie Els (65) finished a stroke out of the playoff.
SYLVANIA — Morgan Pressel’s hole-in-one got Se Ri Pak’s attention. Trailing briefly by three strokes after Pressel aced the sixth hole, Pak regained the lead with a birdie at the 15th hole and held on to tie an LPGA Tour record with her fifth win at the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic. Pak, also the Farr winner in 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2003, matched Mickey Wright, who won the Sea Island Open in 1957-58, ’60, ’62-’63, and Annika Sorenstam, who has won the Samsung World Championship and Mizuno Classic five times each.
ENDICOTT, N.Y. — R.W. Eaks, who never finished better than seventh in a PGA Tour event and was winless in 90 events over six seasons on the Champions Tour, shot a 6-under 66 to win the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open. Eaks completed the three rounds over the En-Joie Golf Club course at 17-under 199. He won $240,000 to push his earnings for the year past $1 million.
COLUMBUS — Daniel Summerhays became the first amateur winner in Nationwide Tour history, closing with a 2-under 69 for a two-stroke victory in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational. Summerhays, who capped his junior season early last month with a fourth-place tie in the NCAA tournament, had a 6-under 278 total on Ohio State University’s Scarlet Course. He’s the nephew of Champions Tour player Bruce Summerhays. Chad Collins (69) and Chris Nallen (71) tied for second, each earning $100,800.
