The biggest winners and losers in the world of golf this month.
The 26-year-old’s season continues to soar with victory in the French Open. As a result, Fleetwood now tops the Race to Dubai rankings and sits 15th in the world rankings.
A birdie at the 18th sees the 24-year-old Californian win her first major, the Women’s PGA Championship. More remarkable still, it also happened to be her first LPGA win.
Four rounds in the 60s help the 56-year-old win the 38th US Senior Open – his second – and a tiny silver trophy. “When my putter gets hot, I usually win,” was how he later called it.
Man stakes bet on the four major winners. Sergio and Koepka deliver. If Rickie (the Open) and Justin Thomas (PGA) come in, man’s £2 bet will earn him a cool £2m.

The Golf Club of Houston
For the third time since 2016, the host of the Shell Houston Open wakes up to find out its greens have been vandalised by tire tracks. The culprits are later apprehended and – we hope – soundly flogged.
Having had to withdraw from the US Open after American Airlines lost his clubs, the American’s clubs again go missing en route to Open qualifying. Next time, sir, take the boat.
While Tiger recovers in rehab, a street artist in Australia paid his own touching tribute to his recent DUI arrest. This large-scale mug shot mural appeared last month in Melbourne.
