The LPGA Tour's second major of the year, the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, has wrapped up, and saw American Danielle Kang win the event. This week also saw the third major championship take place on the Champions Tour, in which Kenny Perry won the Senior U.S. Open. Finally, the Quicken Loans National event on the PGA Tour saw Kyle Stanley emerge victorious in a playoff.

Danielle Kang takes the second major of the year

Danielle Kang bogeyed the 10th hole to fall one back of Canadian Brooke Henderson and South Korean Chella Choi. However, she would get hot and birdie the next four holes to take the lead.

Then she bogeyed the difficult 17th hole to fall back to -12 under par, while Henderson birdied the final two holes to tie with Kang. This meant that Kang would be headed to the last hole to either win, force a playoff or lose the tournament. Kang hit two good shots to get on the green and then two-putted, sinking a birdie to win. The KPMG Women's PGA Championship was not only her first major victory but it was her first win on the LPGA Tour in her 144th start. Kang's previous best finish in a major was when she tied for 14th place at the 2012 U.S. Women's Open.

Kenny Perry wins high scoring Senior U.S. Open

The last round of the Senior U.S. Open came down to a duel between Kirk Triplett and Kenny Perry.

Triplett started the day at -15 under par, Perry was at -14 under and the nearest competition was at -9 under. Perry would shoot a -2 under 68, while Triplett shot a +1 over 71, leading to Perry winning the event by two strokes. Perry shot a record low total score for the event at 264, which was needed since Triplett's score of 266 was the second lowest ever.

His score of -16 was the third lowest total to par ever at the event, only behind Hale Irwin's -17 under in 2000 and Fred Funk's -20 under in 2009. He was also the only player to shoot under par in all four rounds of the event. This was Perry's 9th win on the Champions Tour and his fourth major victory. He is also only the sixth multi-time winner of the Senior U.S.


Kyle Stanley prevails in playoff

Kyle Stanley and Charles Howell III had to go to a playoff to decide the winner, with Stanley making a 5-foot par putt on the first hole to win the event. This victory was an emotional one for Stanley, as it was just his second win on the PGA Tour. His last win had been over five years ago, at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February 2012. It was only three years ago that his game dropped off, as Stanley was ranked 638th in the world and was uncertain if he would ever win again.
