i don't think i care to think about this hypothetical any further unless i actually go back for each year and put together a daily score board and then take into account what course was played and what the weather was like. 2 of those 4 years they played the same course each day.
I said nothing about coming from behind. I said he may have played the rounds differently in different circumstances. It's just as likely that he could have been leading after three rounds instead of being behind. We don't really know. All I'm saying is that taking existing tournament results and chopping off the last round or two rounds or three rounds and saying the standings at that point are "what the results would have been" is not evidence of anything. It's like saying if every football game was 30 minutes instead of 60 minutes, team X would have won 7 games instead of 12 because they trailed at half time in 9 out of 16 games. It doesn't work that way. If they know there's only 30 minutes, they play the game differently.

I was talking about this the other day with a buddy. Clear favorites are Paul vs Ricky. Kevin Jones has some momentum rolling and has the skills to tame both courses.

I'll take the field if I was laying down my $.

I would have lost money. It was close at the end. I thought Ricky was out of it after watching the first few rounds. Big ups to him. 2 more holes he may have caught Paul.

Paul is a true athlete. Anyone can be great but not everyone can be great when everything is on the line.

Props to Paige as well. Those finishing courses really played to her strengths.
