EDMOND, Oklahoma (Cliff Brunt/AP) — Colin Montgomerie is getting used to winning these big events.

The Scotsman defeated Gene Sauers in a playoff to claim the U.S. Senior Open title at Oak Tree National.

Montgomerie failed to win in 71 PGA Tour majors and four Champions Tour majors until May, when he won the Senior PGA Championship. Now, he has won two of his past three majors to become just the fifth golfer to win both the Senior PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open in the same year.

PINEHURST, North Carolina — There’s no doubting Team Canada’s Brooke Henderson knows how to rise to the occasion.

She’s won major amateur events like the Porter Cup and the Spirit Invitational. She’s the youngest golfer ever to win a professional golf title. And now, in perhaps her biggest feat to date, the 16-year-old Smiths Falls, Ont. native captured low amateur honours at the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst No. 2 — where she finished tied for 10th at 5-over 285 on the devious track.

Both the American and Canadian flags flew high at Pinehurst #2 on Sunday.
 
American prodigy Michelle Wie finally won her first Major, fulfilling the promise she showed more than a decade ago when she burst on the golf scene and looked set to rule the world of women’s golf.
 
But after injuries and growing pains set her back – and would see Wie win only 3 LPGA tournaments since she turned pro 9 years ago – Wie took control of this U.S. Open on Friday and doggedly hung on until there were no competitors left to vanquish.

Forgive me, but this script seems awfully familiar.
 
An unheralded South Korean golfer with the last name of Yang comes out of nowhere to vanquish an American golf hero whose last name starts with W in a blistering hot course in the middle of the United States.
 
But unlike 2009, when YE Yang conquered Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship at Hazeltine, it’s 24-year-old Amy Yang who threatens to upset Michelle Wie’s apple cart.
 
Amy Yang hasn’t won anything yet, but getting herself into the final group with Wie has eerie reminders of five years ago during a steamy week in Minnesota.

I’m certainly no apologist for women’s golf, but on a day when the three top American female golfers get ready to contest the U.S. Women’s Open, the big story in golf is, once again, Tiger Woods.
 
Woods, who announced via Facebook that he’s returning from back surgery next week at his own tournament, the Quicken Loans National at Congressional, was the lead news story on ESPN, which is carrying the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst.
 
And ESPN didn’t even bother leading with the leaders, Michelle Wie, Lexi Thompson and Stacy Lewis. Instead, they led with the no doubt captivating story of 11-year-old Lucy Li, who shot 78-78 to miss the cut by 7 strokes.
