MPO lead card making #12 look like child's play.
If you add their collective distance from the pin, it's still probably within C1.

It looks like the deer avoided the oncoming car!

Very cool to see a player not known for big distance win at this course. He was basically surgical in his approach to the course.

Very different from the days when he refused high-5. That's a behavioral transformation. Looks like he bulked up as well. A very different look all around. He seemed so happy.

Really wanted the 3-fer for Simon, but happy for Bradley, played great all weekend. Made some really clutch throws toward the end. Glad to Ricky healthy again--hope Eagle can recover in time to make a showing this year.

Did anyone think Bradley trying to clear the water on 18's 2nd shot was WAY too risky? I mean if he goes in the water, could easily be extra holes...all he had to do was about a 250'-300' layup, then a 150' pitch up for a par to win? Guess he was just feeling it...

Last thought--the sheer number of players making a big splash (top 5 finishes, and even wins) in the last 2 years is astounding--at this point I wouldn't be shocked if almost anyone won the next event. I mean who had Bradley, Simon x2, and GG winning the last 4 at the beginning of the year?

Could be a very interesting off-season in the sponsorship world. As the COVID DG boom wanes (it has to, doesn't it), and the country battles a tough economic environment, I can't see the huge $$ we have been seeing in sponsorships continue--seems like a big game of musical chairs coming up...just so many players having good years, including even more youngsters. That also means fewer wins each year for any one particular player moving forward, as there seems to be a marked increase in overall talent level on the MPO side.

Yes. He began hole 18 with a 1 stroke lead and needed just a par to win. I believe I would have laid up.

It was exciting when he went for it, though.
