De Jonge fails at US PGA Championships

Zimbabwe’s Brendon De Jonge recently swung at the US PGA Championships, albeit failing in a strong field that saw Rory Mcllroy cement his position as the top golfer in the world.

The PGA Championship is the last major of the season and De Jonge was way off the race in which he finished in 41st position after caddying 70, 70, 72, and 70 for a total one under-par 282.

De Jonge, who tied in that position with Brian Harman, Luke Donald and Ryan Moore, was far behind overall winner Mcllroy, who was on 16 under par 265, one shot ahead of Phil Mickelson.

The middle field position was De Jonge’s second in a week following last week’s 37th place at the PGA Championship-the Bridgestone Invitational. That saw his world ranking improve from 85th to 83rd and the weekend’s showing could see him move more steps up the ladder.

This comes after he missed the cut at the Open Championship, better known as the British Open.
