Epic Sunday in golf

The golf season is in full swing, and there are several Sunday showdowns to watch across the country and across the pond.

PGA Tour: Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial

It is officially a packed leaderboard at Colonial with four players tied for first at seven-under and six players tied for second at six-under. There is a great mix of young and old talent that will make for an exciting finish. 22-year-old Hideki Matsuyama is tied for the lead with veteran players David Toms, Chad Campbell, and Chris Stroud.

World no. 1 Adam Scott fired a third round 66 to jump into a tie for eleventh place at five-under. He will need to finish higher than world no. 3 Henrik Stenson finishes at the Euro Tour’s BMW PGA Championship to retain the top spot.

European Tour: BMW PGA Championship

Thomas Bjorn (-15) opened up a five-stroke lead over Luke Donald (-10) at Wentworth. Bjorn is in the driver’s seat, and will have a golden opportunity to secure his second W of the season.

Rory McIlroy is tied for fourth place with Joost Luiten at eight-under.

Henrik Stenson is tied for seventh place at six-under, and a good round tomorrow may give him the number one ranking in the world.

LPGA: Airbus LPGA Classic

Anna Nordqvist (-16) shot a second consecutive 66 to take a one-stroke lead over Catriona Mathew (-15). Nordqvist is looking for her third win of the season.

World no. 2 Stacy Lewis (-14) is in third place, and if she finishes solo third or higher, she will pass Inbee Park for the number one ranking.

Champions Tour: Senior PGA Championship

Colin Montgomerie (-7) has a one-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer (-6). Monty has never won an event in the U.S. while Langer in a 20-time winner on the Champions Tour. Sunday will be a fight to the finish between the two Hall of Famers.
