Sang-Moon Bae notches first career victory. Graeme McDowell wins Volvo World Match Play. Mark Anderson wins Web.com BMW Pro-Am. Jennifer Johnson wins Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. Peter Uihlein earns first professional win at Madeira Islands Open. Rex Hoggard tells the story of Ken Venturi's 1964 US Open triumph:  "But it was that scorching day in June 1964 that will be remembered. When Everett advised him after the third round that he was in danger of suffering heat stroke if he kept playing, Venturi shrugged, “I’ve got nowhere else to go.”" Luminaries remember Venturi:  "If there is some sense of fairness, it is that Ken was inducted into a Hall of Fame that he very much deserved to be in and, in fact, should have been in for many years. While I know he was not able to be there in person for his induction, I am certain there was an overwhelming sense of pride and peace that embraced Ken. It was a dream of Ken Venturi¹s that became a reality before he sadly left us." – Jack Nicklaus Bob Harig recounts Venturi's '58 Masters going head-to-head with Palmer:  "He ruled Palmer had to play without relief. An argument ensued, and Palmer eventually played the ball, gouging it out of the turf, hitting a poor chip past the hole, then two-putting for a double-bogey 5. Venturi had made par and assumed the lead.   Or so he thought. Feeling he had gotten a bad ruling, Palmer announced he was playing a second ball. This time, with a drop to a clean lie, he chipped up near the hole and made par. The twosome played on, waiting for a rules committee to decide Palmer's fate." Robert Lusetich remembers Venturi the man:  "Venturi once said he measured every decision he’d made in life through one simple prism: Would his parents be proud?" Short miss dooms Keegan Bradley at Byron Nelson. Luke Donald seeking BMW Hat-Trick. Nicolas Colsaerts saves par from the restroom. Probably don't ask for directions on the course from this guy.
