Rory McIlroy found his comfort zone at Quail Hollow and left with a trophy he badly needed. McIlroy closed with a 3-under 68 and made it tough on himself at the end Sunday, driving into the hazard left of the 18th fairway and needing two putts from 45 feet for a one-shot victory in the Wells Fargo Championship. What mattered was ending 18 months since his last victory in the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, along with finding a strong semblance of his game as he prepares to return to Kiawah Island for the PGA Championship.

With a big comeback and an even bigger putt, Alex Cejka ensured he won't have to wait or play his way into events for a while. Cejka won the Regions Tradition on Sunday in only his third PGA Tour Champions start, beating defending champion Steve Stricker with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff to earn a full exemption for the next two seasons. A childhood refugee from communist Czechlosovokia (now the Czech Republic), the 50-year-old Cejka made a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 18 and Stricker missed an 8-footer with a chance to extend the playoff at Greystone Golf & Country Club.

Quail Hollow would always have held a special place in the Rory McIlroy story anyway, but now the North Carolina layout surely deserves a chapter all of its very own after this dramatic turnaround. At the course where he first broke his US duck 11 years ago, McIlroy returned for another emotional win that could well go on to hold as much resonance. With a 68 - and a huge fright on the 18th - McIlroy fended off a high quality and, at stages, tightly packed PGA Tour leaderboard to lift his first title in 19 months. He arrived here at 15th in the world - his lowest ranking since 2009 - and on the back of two missed cuts at the Players and the Masters. But he left that worrying mediocrity behind, with a 10-under total one-shot success over Mexican Abraham Ancer that hauls him back up into the world's top 10. And with the USPGA taking place next week at a course where he also has a back story - McIlroy won the same major by eight shots the last time it was held at Kiawah Island in 2012 - everything seems possible for the Northern Irishman again. Could a hat-trick of Quail Hollow crowns be followed by a third Wanamaker Trophy, as he finally ends his seven-year majorless run? For now, that question can wait as McIlroy celebrates his 28th professional win, yet his first as a dad. Cheered on all the way by a passionate crowd who cared not a jot about nationality, McIlroy plainly relished performing again in a rowdy arena. McIlroy hated playing in the sterile environs of the behind-closed-doors era.

Ariya Jutanugarn shot a 9-under-par 63 in the final round to win the LPGA Thailand by one stroke on Sunday and become the first home winner of the tournament in 14 years. Jutanugarn's overall total of 22 under 266 just edged out her fellow Thai Atthaya Thitikul, 18, who missed a four-foot birdie putt at the last to force a playoff. Jutanugarn's unblemished round included nine birdies and went some way to making up for her collapse in 2013 when she blew a two-shot lead on the 18th hole with a triple bogey that handed victory to South Korea's Inbee Park.

Defending champion Steve Stricker made a long eagle putt on the final hole for 7-under 65 and the third-round lead Saturday in the Regions Tradition, the first of five PGA Tour Champions majors.

Stricker, who won the Alabama major the last time it was held in 2019, raised his fist toward the fans just an instant before the eagle putt dropped in on the closing par 5.

'Whoops': Bryson DeChambeau forced into costly U-turn after mistakenly jetting home from Wells Fargo
Bryson DeChambeau is known as â€œthe Scientistâ€� because of his academic approach to the game and so certain was the former quantum physics student of the accuracy of his sums, that he departed this Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina on Friday certain he had missed the cut. Yet when his private jet touched down in his hometown of Dallas, he realised â€“ shock, horror â€“ that his calculations had been wrong. In the three hours he had spent in the air, the wind had created havoc on the Quail Hollow leaderboard. â€œSo yesterday I made triple bogey on the seventh [his 16th] and even though I chipped in at the eighth, I finished with a 74 on two over and thought thereâ€™s no way, Iâ€™m in 90th with 65 making it,â€� DeChambeau said. â€œBut by the time I landed I was in 64th or 63rd and Iâ€™m like â€˜whoops!â€™ â€� Surely the aircraft could have performed a hasty about-turn. â€œI hoped so, but the problem was that the crew had done their hours, so we had to get a new crew and although we tried we couldnâ€™t work it out, so had to leave it until the early hours,â€� DeChambeau explained. â€œI went to bed at 8pm, was up at 1am and I left Dallas at 2.45am, I got here at 6.20am, drove the 30 minutes to the course, put on my clothes in the locker room and headed out. I did get a workout in my gym last night, though.â€� Well, of course he did, and the exhaustion was worth it as the 27-year-old shot a 68 to move to one under. However, at one stage it seemed as if DeChambeau would take emphatic advantage of his unexpected Saturday tee-time, but he double-bogeyed the 18th.
