“An emotional win, it had been a long time coming.”
“I made some changes in the middle of the year last year and feel like I got a lot better at the end of last year.”
“I just didn’t quite show it on the golf course, so to come out here and my back against the wall for a bunch of tournaments I like playing in, I’m used to playing in, and it is really special and means a lot to me.”
Nick Watney took second place, three shots back on -19 under par, his final round -3 under par 69 not quite enough to get the job done.
Third place belonged to Charley Beljan, a final round -6 under par 66 giving him a -18 under par tournament total.
Tied in fourth spot at -17 under par were Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Pat Perez. The Pro-Am Title went to Pat Perez and Michael Lund, co-founder of Pandora Jewelry. They finished 63-63 on the weekend as a team.
Pat gave all the credit for the team win to Michael, a winning score of – 42-under, they prevailed by two over Sneds and Toby Wilt.
Pat said of his playing partner;
“He cusses a lot, smokes, yells and all kinds of stuff.”
“He keeps me calm, keeps me laughing. I think that got me into such a great frame of mind all week. It was just an awesome week. It was fun.”
And fun is what it is supposed to be.
