GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) Suzann Pettersen stood over the final shot of her golfing career, not quite realizing it also was the last shot of the most dramatic Solheim Cup ever played.

Europe's players had their hands over their mouths, and their captain could barely watch. Blissfully unaware of what was unfolding was 1-year-old Herman, Pettersen's first child who was also among the thousands around the 18th green at Gleneagles.

The putt was from 7 feet, slightly left to right, and it never looked like missing.

Hovland ties streak of sub-70 rounds

Viktor Hovland tied the PGA Tour record on Sunday at The Greenbrier with his 17th consecutive round in the 60s, closing with a 64 to tie for 10th. He matched the mark set by Bob Estes in the fall of 2001, and it could shed some light on how much golf at the highest level has changed in two decades.

Both had every round in the 60s at four straight tournaments. Hovland's streak started with a 64 in the final round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, while Estes' streak ended with a 63 in the final round at Las Vegas when it was a five-round tournament. Read More...

McIlroy tops Koepka for player of year
