Smiley carded a final round -10 under par 61 to win the  Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.

A back nine run sealed the deal for Smiley;

“It’s funny, on 9, my caddie; I asked him, I was like, who do you think is going to win this week?”

“He’s like, well, I think there’s more to be said. I think you can post a number and you can see what happens. He knew better than I did, and I did it.”

“It was an extremely long wait, I couldn’t do anything about what they were doing. I just did my best to prepare for a playoff.”

“It’s unbelievable, if you would’ve told me that I had a round at the Masters; if somebody was going to take me out and not completely with the Masters, just to play Augusta National, I would have freaked out”

“. But now I’m playing the Masters. It’s a joke. It’s unbelievable.”

Sharing second at -15 under par were  Patton Kizzire, Kevin Na, Cameron Tringale,Jason Bohn ,Alex Cejka, Kevin Na and Brett Stagmeir.

Kevin came up wit the quote of the day:

“Ignorance is bliss. I guess it’s one of those things, they play with nothing to lose.”
