The big­gest win­ners and losers in the world of golf this month.

Golf World (UK) - - THE SPIN -

Paul Casey

Plays the spoiler role in Tiger’s re­turn, win­ning the Valspar by a shot. It’s a fine time to win again – his first on the PGA Tour in nine years.

Phil Mick­el­son

Sticks it to the kids by win­ning the WGC-Mex­ico, edg­ing out Justin Thomas in a play-off to win for a 43rd time on the PGA Tour at the age of 47.

Jes­sica Korda

Spent her off-sea­son hav­ing her nose and jaw bro­ken and screwed back to­gether. Bounces back to win the Honda LPGA Thai­land by four shots.

Tiger and Ernie

Two of golf’s heavy­weights are un­veiled as captains of the US and the In­ter­na­tion­als re­spec­tively for the 2019 Pres­i­dents Cup in Aus­tralia.

Bad gal­leries

Spec­ta­tor at the Honda Clas­sic en­cour­ages Justin Thomas’ ball into the bunker. “En­joy your day buddy, you’re gone,” replies JT.

Rory McIl­roy

Missed cuts at Peb­ble Beach and the Valspar sand­wich a T20 and T59 and post doubts that Rory can fi­nally land that elu­sive Mas­ters. Hey, come on, we’re tempt­ing fate here.

Ian Poul­ter

Re­gret for IJP, who spots the Fer­rari he sold to Rory parked at a tour­na­ment. “When you see your old love... and miss it... “he wept on In­sta­gram.

Rhein Gib­son’s cad­die

Sacked for mis­tak­enly pick­ing Gib­son’s ball up dur­ing a Web.com event. Gib­son an­grily lobs his put­ter head cover at his cad­die’s head, then later sacks him.
