Dunlap captures Boeing Classic

Associated Press

Scott Dunlap won the Boeing Classic in Snoqualmie, Washington, when he made a short birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff against Mark Brooks.

Dunlap set up his winning putt on the par-5 18th hole with an outstanding approach to the right of the pin that bounced past the hole, and then drew back downhill to within 4 feet. He missed his eagle try but made his next putt for his first Champions Tour victory.

Brooks, who put himself in jeopardy by landing in a bunker on his drive, just missed a 30-foot putt on his fourth shot.

It was the fifth playoff in the 10-year history of the tournament at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

PGA Tour

Hunter Mahan pulled away with three straight birdies late in the final round to win The Barclays in Paramus, N.J., ending more than two years without a title on the PGA Tour.

The victory was the sixth of his career, and one of the most important.

Mahan had gone 48 tournaments worldwide without winning and began the FedEx Cup playoffs at No. 62, guaranteed to play only two events. By closing with a 6-under 65 for a two-shot victory, he is assured of making the Tour Championship every year since the FedEx Cup began in 2007.

Jason Day closed with a 68 and shared second place with Stuart Appleby (65) and Cameron Tringale, who celebrated his 27th birthday with a 66.

LPGA

So Yeon Ryu won the Canadian Women’s Open at London Hunt, breaking the tournament record at 23-under 265.

The 24-year-old Ryu closed with a 3-under 69 for a two-stroke victory over fellow South Korean player Na Yeon Choi.

European Tour

Jamie Donaldson shot 4-under 68 to win the Czech Masters in Vysoky Ujezd, Czech Republic, and secure a spot on the European Ryder Cup team.

Donaldson needed a top-seven finish to guarantee a debut in next month’s match against the United States at Gleneagles.

<h3>Web.com Tour

Carlos Ortiz won the Portland Open for his third Web.com Tour victory of the season, making him fully exempt on the 2014-15 PGA Tour.

The 23-year-old Ortiz, a former North Texas player from Mexico, closed with an even-par 71 for a one-stroke victory in the regular-season finale. He earned $144,000 to push his tour-leading total to $515,403, with the top 25 on the money list getting PGA Tour cards.

Ortiz finished at 14-under 270 on Pumpkin Ridge’s Witch Hollow course.

Spokane’s Alex Prugh finished at 277 after a 69 to tie for 21st and win $8,320. He finished 36th on the money list.
