Philadelphia, PA ( - For the first time since 2009, the 2014 Tour season had a three-time winner in Mexican Carlos Ortiz. Ortiz, who automatically qualified to play on the PGA Tour during the 2014-15 season with his incredible year, became the first player since Michael Sim in 2009 to take home three titles in one season on the Tour. Ortiz and Adam Hadwin, who picked up two victories on tour, were the only multiple winners, meaning there was quite a bit of parity throughout the 25 events in 2014. In his first professional start, Sebastian Cappelen earned a 1-shot victory over Matt Weibring at the Air Capital Classic in June. Steven Alker and Dawie van der Walt battled in a playoff for hours to decide the Cleveland Open. Entering the finals series, which featured the final four events of the season, the top-25 players on the regular-season money list earned their PGA Tour cards for the 2014-15 season, with another 25 handed out at the conclusion of the season. Now lets take a look at who else did what in 2014: PLAYER OF THE YEAR -- CARLOS ORTIZ There was little doubt that Ortiz would earn Player of the Year honors after hoisting three different trophies throughout the 2014 season. Ortiz began his season with a third-place finish at the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship, but things only got better from there for the now 23- year-old Mexican. Following a missed cut at the Chile Classic and a tie for 22nd at the Brasil Champions, Ortiz cruised to a 4-shot victory over Jason Gore at the Panama Claro Championship. Ortiz improved on his score all four days, going 70-68-66-64 to finish the week at 12-under-par 268. Two events later, Ortiz went on to win on his home soil at the El Bosque Mexico Championship in April for his second victory in three tournaments. Ortiz started the week with a 2-over 74, but three straight rounds in the 60s helped him pick up a 2-shot win over Justin Thomas. It was over four months between wins before Ortiz took home the WinCo Foods Portland Open title, his third of the season. Ortiz started the week on fire with rounds of 66 and 63. While he cooled down to finish 70-71, Ortiz was able to hold off Adam Hadwin and Gore to win by one shot at 14-under 270. Along with his three wins, Ortiz had six top-10 finishes, but he did miss eight cuts in 19 starts, although five of those cuts came over his last six events to go along with his win in Portland. While he did not earn any money in the finals series, Ortiz finished the regular season atop the earnings list with $515,403. He ended second overall at the conclusion of the finals series. Hadwin was the only other player to be considered for Player of the Year. TOURNAMENT OF THE YEAR -- CLEVELAND OPEN The 2014 Tour season featured five tournaments that went to a playoff, but none were as riveting as the marathon between Steven Alker and Dawie van der Walt at the Cleveland Open. While the Cleveland Open was an event on the PGA Tour in 1966 and 1968, this was the first time it was played on the circuit and it did not disappoint. After Alker fired a final-round, 6-under 65 and van der Walt carded a 66, the duo finished regulation tied at 14-under-par 270. The tournament was not even close to over, however, as the duo went on to play a Tour record 11 playoff holes before Alker finally closed things out with a birdie. Alker appeared to be in firm control heading to the finish of regulation, but his 3-shot lead fell apart when he made a pair of bogeys on 17 and 18 at Lakewood Country Club. In the meantime, van der Walt used a huge back nine to catch Alker. Van der Walt made all pars on his first nine holes in the final round, but he started his way up the leaderboard with birdies on 10 and 12. After a par on 13, van der Walt drained four gains on his final five holes from 14, with a bogey on 16 sandwiched in between. Van der Walts final birdie of the day on 18 forced a playoff. The duo went on to play the 18th hole twice in a row to start the playoff, and then played Nos. 16 through 18 three times until Alker finally ended it on the par-4 18th. After exchanging pars with van der Walt on the first 10 playoff holes, Alker stuck his second shot on 18 to about three feet. Van der Walt was unable to convert his 15-foot birdie try and Alker tapped in for his birdie and his fourth career victory on the Tour. Alker only had two other top-10 finishes on the season, including a runner-up finish at the Boise Open. Van der Walt picked up a win on the European Tours Nelson Mandela Championship in December, but he has never won on the Tour. GOOD YEAR - Adam Hadwin was the only other multiple winner on tour this season along with Ortiz. Hadwin earned a 1-shot victory at the Chile Classic and a 2-stroke win at the Chiquita Classic. He also tied for second behind Ortiz at the WinCo Foods Portland Open. Hadwin had nine top-10 finishes on the year and he ended atop the cumulative money list at $529,792, which is the third most all time. - Derek Fathauer took home his first career victory at the season-ending Tour Championship. He also finished runner-up to Roger Sloan at the Nova Scotia Open and tied for third at the Panama Claro Championship. Fathauer had eight top-10 finishes and missed just four cuts all year. - Justin Thomas had seven top-10 finishes and missed just two cuts in 20 events in 2014. Thomas won the penultimate event of the season when he defeated Richard Sterne in a playoff at the Nationwide Childrens Hospital Championship. Thomas was also a runner-up to Ortiz at the El Bosque Mexico Championship and a third-place finisher at the Boise Open. BAD YEAR - Fernando Mechereffe made just seven cuts in 21 starts on the Tour in 2014. His lone top-10 finish of the season came at the Boise Open, where he tied for 10th. - Despite losing in the Cleveland Open playoff, Dawie van der Walt made just eight cuts in 17 events on tour. The runner-up at the Cleveland Open was van der Walts only top 10 of the season. - Jared Wolfe missed the cut 15 times in 17 events on tour in 2014. His best overall finish was a tie for 33rd at the South Georgia Classic in May. Air Force 1 Low Italia .I shared with him how much I appreciated all he had done for us, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said of that Thursday night farewell. Air Force 1 Sp Outlet . Today, well look at five frontcourt players today, here from the Bay Area. 1. AMIR JOHNSON (Raptors): I cant figure out what the issue or problem is, but based upon what Im seeing, hes not right. - The 2014 Holiday Bowl is the first postseason venture pitting a pair of ranked foes against each other, as No. Air Force 1 Outlet . Braves reliever David Carpenter was also fined for throwing at Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson in the same game, which featured several ejections, including Colorado manager Walt Weiss. Sf Air Force 1 Mid Desert Ochre . Kripps, of Summerland, B.C., and Edmontons Barnett used a terrific second run to move up two spots, putting the Canadian duo in medal contention with the final two runs set for Monday (11:15 a.m. ET, streaming live at cbc.ST. LOUIS - So much is at stake and with an entire offseason to recover, Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz will make the Game 4 start on Sunday night. Hell be at less than full health, something with which hes become accustomed. "I dont think there is any risk there," said Buchholz. "My one thing that I have is to go and compete. Go out there for as long as John wants to leave me out there, and give the team a chance to win to the best of my ability." Buchholz had gaudy regular season numbers (16 starts - 12-1, 1.74, 1.025 WHIP) but he suffered through an injury-riddled campaign, missing exactly three months with a neck strain. He made four starts after his return on September 10 and in three postseason starts, hes recorded three no-decisions while posting a 5.40 ERA and 1.440 WHIP in 16 2/3 innings. Buchholz appears to tire relatively early in games, twice against the Tigers he couldnt get out of the sixth inning, and indications are hes experiencing tightness in his pitching shoulder. Buchholz promises to grind through. "Its going to be my first World Series experience being on the field, and I think that just the environment, the crowd, the adrenaline, thats going to help me out, too," he said. The 29-year-old has undergone rigorous treatment to prepare for Sunday night. Buchholz has been careful about his use of pain medication in the wake of a bout of esophagitis that put him in hospital last season. "I stayed away from the stuff that, the really stronng anti-inflammatories," said Buchholz.dddddddddddd "Basically been on the same stuff since the first time during the season, whenever I went on the disabled list." Buchholzs problems of late have started around the 75-pitch mark. He will be watched closely by Bostons coaching staff. Left-hander Felix Doubront and right-hander Ryan Dempster, both starters during the regular season, would be available to work multiple innings if Buchholz needs the support. "We go into (Sunday) thinking that hes going to give us what hes been in the postseason," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "That might be a little bit shorter of an outing than maybe weve seen back in April and May. But hes also been very effective and were fully anticipating that to be the case (Sunday.)" Itll be a fine balance for Buchholz, who will have to make an honest determination about the state of his arm on an inning-by-inning basis. "Being at this level, especially on this stage, its tough to take yourself out of a game. Ive never done that before," he said. "But with this scenario thats going on right now, Im going to tell them the truth. Its not going to be one of times where you might be feeling tired but still telling everybody that youre good to go. Like I said, Im going to compete and give my team the best chance of winning that I can and if something does come up that Im feeling a little rundown, then, yeah, thats something that Ill let them know."
