THIS TIME, THE PUTT GOT to the hole and dropped in.

Australian good guy Jason Day won a shootout at the RBC Canadian Open by sinking a 22-foot birdie putt on the final hole to beat Canadian David Hearn and American Bubba Watson by a shot. Day's fourth PGA Tour win was like salve after a close call at the Open Championship a week ago.

"It was disappointing," Day said about barely missing a playoff at St. Andrews.

"Even though I knew that I played great, I knew that I had to focus on this week. So when I actually had the same putt ... the same thing was going through my mind: 'Make sure you get it to the hole.'"

And he did, for his third consecutive birdie that gave him a 68 and 17-under total at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Ontario.

Day's triumph was Hearn's disappointment, the home-country favorite who began the round with a two-shot lead and shot a ho-hum 72.

"I got off to a great start," Hearn said, "and in the middle of the round I just struggled a bit with hitting the quality...

— European Senior Tour (@EuroSeniorTour) July 24, 2015

WEATHER IS A FACTOR AT ANOTHER Open Championship this week. The second round of the Senior British Open at Sunningdale Golf Club in Berkshire, England, was suspended on Friday afternoon due to heavy rain and flooding. Play is scheduled to resume on Saturday at 8 a.m.

"The plan will be to finish round two tomorrow and then start round three," said European Tour referee Dave Williams on EuropeanTour.com.

"All going well, we'll start round three as a two-tee start. We'll have probably have an hour or so of play left to then finish up on Sunday morning. Then we'll probably go with threeballs off one tee and finish when we're supposed to."

Eight men share the lead at 5 under par: Colin Montgomerie,...

WHY AND WHEN DID BASEBALL PLAYERS start wearing golf gloves in the batter's box?

Golfers, more than anyone else, might be the first to ask that question seeing, as they do, ball players tugging at their golf gloves as they approach the plate.

Famed baseball player Ken "Hawk" Harrelson
said golf was his favorite sport.​
Some say it was Bobby Thomson of the Giants who wore a glove during spring training in 1949; others say it was Ted Williams in '53, when he came back to the Red Sox from Korea. Baseball historians also point out that Larry Doby, the first African-American player in the American league, wore a glove, but it seems that everyone...

IS WORLD NO. 1 RORY MCILROY an old 26? Maybe so with 21-year-old Jordan Spieth now leading the charge in golf.

Karen Crouse of the New York Times filed this story:
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — The bespectacled, white-haired journalist from The Surrey Advertiser, on hand to chronicle his 37th consecutive British Open, cocked his head and asked Jordan Spieth a question that cut through the crosswinds during the tournament as deftly as did one of Spieth’s crisp iron shots on the Old Course:
When did golf become so youthful?​

Rory McIlroy missed the Open Championship
due to an ankle injury.​
And on Spieth possibly stealing McIlroy's throne:
Last summer, McIlroy was golf’s...​

MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS AFTER being no one's pick to win the Masters, Zach Johnson has won the Open Championship by shooting a final-round 66 and defeating 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and Australian Marc Leishman in a four-hole playoff at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland.

After it was over, Johnson said he was speechless.

He probably wasn't the only one at a loss for words after an Open that stretched over five days and produced incredible excitement during a Monday finish that saw so many players with a chance to clutch the Claret Jug, including Jordan Spieth, who fell one stroke short in his march to the elusive Grand Slam.

Johnson, 39, started birdie-birdie in the four-hole playoff and held on to edge Oosthuizen by a shot.

"I'm grateful. I'm humbled. I'm honored," an emotional Johnson told ESPN's Tom Rinaldi on the 18th...

TOM WATSON TALKS ABOUT HIS LAST Open Championship. He won his first of five Open titles in 1975 at Carnoustie in a playoff against Australian Jack Newton.

Watson also gives a primer on how to play the Old Course. Stay left. Don't "underplay" the wind. Be "spot on" with your long putting. The 65-year-old opened with a 4-over 76.

"I stunk up the joint the way I played," Watson said. "Too many 6s on the back nine ruined my day."

Unless he does something heroic, today will be his last walk up 18.

HE HAS BEEN AROUND AS LONG as Tom Watson, but he's not retiring from the Open Championship. At least not yet. And apparently no one knows how old he is.

I'm talking about Ivor Robson, of course, the official starter at the Open Championship since 1975, the year Watson won the first of his five Open titles. Robson's understated flair has been heard throughout the British Isles every July since Gerald Ford was president and Arthur Ashe and Billie Jean King won the singles titles at Wimbledon.

Not only has the man been on the job a long time, he has taken a very serious approach to the business of sending off the world's best players. Every championship round, from first to last grouping, Robson nevers leaves his post, not even for a bathroom break.

How is that possible? Well, much like the world's best players, Ivor has a routine.

"This job requires total and complete...
