“I’ve just got to keep giving myself chances like this, and it’s going to happen soon.”Hearn, who was ranked 177th in the world heading into the tournament, won $500,000 while Lee earned $1.2 million””. Hearn matched Lee from a few feet closer.
Hearn was unlucky when his approach shot sailed off the green and into the bunker and he could only bogey to hand his opponent the initiative. Still 113 yards away, his fourth shot ran past the hole in the far back of the green into a collection area. The most fantastic “putt” came at the 13th (video above), where he drained a 30 footer for the birdie.
Thomas would make a birdie at the par 3 8th hole and showed his swagger of confidence walking off the green with sole possession of the lead at 13-under.
“All I can say is wow”, the 24-year-old told reporters.
“It’s wonderful just wonderful”. “It means so much to me, this victory”. “I finally did it”.
2002 – Craig Perks only won once on the PGA Tour, but it was a good one, the Players’ Championship. Molder shot 70 and the others had over-par rounds.
The Canadian, playoff victor Danny Lee, James Hahn and Greg Owen all earned spots in the field at St. Andrews. “But it takes time, I’m pleased with what I’ve been able to do though”. Wyckoff native Morgan Hoffmann fired a 66 and finished at 10-under (270), tied for 13th. Lee tied for third at 12 under.
Or at least it appeared so at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia where he landed five birdies, including a monster 10m putt after being forced to use his iron when he broke his putter during the final round. Starting on the front nine this time Thomas sandwiched pars on the first four holes and the last four holes around a birdie on the par-4 fifth. On the back nine Thomas parred the first seven holes before birdieing the par-5 17th. Collins joined Kisner in the lead with a birdie at 14, but was done in by a 3-putt bogey at 17. A flag from that tournament at Pinehurst, also the venue of Michael Campbell’s United States Open win in 2005, graces the clubhouse. The putter is the most important club in the bag.
It is a life-changing putt and I’m very excited at being able to play in another major… “I drove the ball great all day, that was probably the only one I missed today (on 17)”.
It was also Kisner’s third loss in a play-off this season after Rickie Fowler beat him at the Players Championship and Jim Furyk edged him out at the RBC Heritage in April. Will Mackenzie withdrew prior to the final round with a knee injury …
