Under his leadership, the NJSGA made great strides, including the sale of its Golf Cottage in Bloomfield, the long-time home of the NJSGA which preceded the moving of the headquarters to the current site at Galloping Hill Golf Course in Kenilworth.

Marina Alex trailed by six strokes at the beginning of the final round of the Cambia Portland Classic on Sunday. But when she made the turn at Columbia-Edgewater Country Club, she was leading. Alex had birdied the last five holes of the front nine to turn in 30. Behind her, the duo of Minjee Lee and Georgia Hall were faltering in the final group. Both Lee and Hall have won in 2018, setting up the expectation that Sunday's final round was going to turn into a duel between the two. But Hall's 75 and Lee's 77 put them well behind Alex.

The only thing was, Alex had no clue.

The former Vanderbilt All-American had spent the entire day avoiding any glimpse of a leader board. So she was completely unaware that she held a four-stroke lead while standing on the 18th tee. Only when she got within 150 yards of the green did she finally asked her caddie where they stood.

Bryson DeChambeau completed the first stage of his mission by winning The Northern Trust.

The next one is up to Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk.

Staked to a four-shot lead, DeChambeau never let anyone closer than two shots, ended the threat with consecutive birdies and closed with a 2-under 69 for a four-shot victory over Tony Finau on Sunday in the FedEx Cup opener.

DeChambeau won for the second time this year, both times against some of the strongest fields. He moved to the top of the FedEx Cup standings and was all but assured of being one of the top five seeds at the Tour Championship who have a clear shot at the $10 million bonus.

Also on his mind is playing for no money at all at the Ryder Cup.

DeChambeau narrowly missed earning one of the eight automatic spots for the U.S. team when he missed the cut at the PGA Championship. Furyk makes three of his four captain's picks a week from Tuesday, and it will be tough to ignore a 24-year-old Californian with victories at...
