Simpson leads Casey, Lee by two after 54 holes at Colonial

Simpson leads Casey, Lee by two after 54 holes at Colonial

Kisner, 33, posted a closing 66 and a 10-under-par tournament total to hold off Spieth, the defending champ, and two other golfers by one stroke.

Spieth's historic quest ended one stroke short.

Back-to-back birdies on holes 16 and 17 saw Lee make a late surge on Monday but it wasn't enough to lift himself back into contention after bogeying holes two, five and 12.

"That's what we needed to see", said the Texas native Spieth. Despite the distance, there were 109 attempts to reach the green in two this week, the most in the tournament's 71 years. He watched emotionless as Kisner putted up a mound to 5 feet and then drained the winning putt.

Fake Budweiser factory in China pumping out gallons of dodgy beer
Anheuser-Busch InBev, which owns Budweiser, has 14 breweries in China , and is the third-largest beer brand in the country. Just a year ago , a raid on a fake Budweiser factory in Guangzhou, China yielded thousands of fake beer cans.

"I knew with putter I was going to have no worse than ten feet for par", Kisner said of taking the flat stick from off the green at the last.

After a 14-foot birdie putt at the par-4 15th, Kisner had a two-stroke lead.

"So he's a great kid". Today I was just having fun with it.

The win caps off what has been a solid run of form for Kisner in recent months with second-place finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March and then alongside Scott Brown in the new Zurich Classic team format in April.

U.S. election claims fiction, insists Vladimir Putin
The Kremlin has denied involvement, and Putin on Monday reiterated that Russian Federation never meddled in the French election. Putin said the two leaders assess many issues similarly and their relations could be "qualitatively" improved.

Kisner then calmly rolled in his par putt to finish at 10-under and wait for his only remaining challenger Simpson to finish.

After being among four players who shared the 36-hole lead, Simpson went ahead alone to stay after consecutive birdies to start his back nine. He would need those as rain-softened Colonial finally relinquished loads of low scores. "Everybody was questioning if I was ever going to win". Ferrari did not win a race previous year, but the Italian manufacturer has turned the tables on Mercedes. Instead, Spieth made his only poor putt of the day there from 15 feet.

"It was a hard putt just to two-putt". He routinely outdrove the 59-year-old Langer by 30 yards and got up-and-down for birdie on the par-5 18th to maintain his one-shot advantage. He made a almost 25-foot birdie putt that had just enough speed to fall into the cup at No. 18, while Lee was playing in the group behind him.

In five Colonials, Spieth has finished T7, T14, T2, 1, T2. "I probably got the better part of the draw with the weather with the wind laying down this afternoon and picking up yesterday afternoon, so it's been a nice two days for me". "So to go from there to a second-place finish and nearly having a chance at a playoff is tremendous fight".

Antonio Conte also has no plans to sell the Spain worldwide as he has been integral to Chelsea's success this season. I was very young back then. "He loves football and has a style that is similar to Barca's", Bartomeu said.

"When your back's against the wall and you feel the nerves kick up because you've got to do something, and you're not going to be able to play both weekends in town", said Spieth, coming off missed cuts in The Players Championship and AT&T Byron Nelson. With the Colonial victory, he improved 10 spots to No. 17 in the FedEx Cup standings.
