Check out the bold statement Nationwide Tour player Martin Piller made recently with some stunning, custom FJ ICON Asymmetricals featuring the hibiscus print! And he wore them right into the winner's circle when he captured his first Tour victory earlier this year at the Stadion Athens Classic in Georgia. On that day, Piller began the day one back and was locked in a battle until the final hole where he stuffed an 8-iron approach to 8 feet and secured his maiden victory.
Piller's done it again.
After making the cut by one shot at the recent Cox Classic, Piller roared into contention with a 62 on Saturday and followed that with a final round 7-under 64 to win the tournament by two shots and secure his PGA Tour card for next year. En route to victory, Piller reeled off a birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie streak that matched the best birdie-eagle streak in tournament history.
"(This win) was a lot different than Athens, where par was good," said
Piller. "I knew that par was not going to be good and I knew that
I was going to have to go out and make something happen. I didn't have
a number in mind. The only number I had in mind was one."
In winning tournaments in different styles, both battling with other players and then storming from behind, Piller proves he's deserving of a promotion to the big stage next year.
"I was very determined, I was very focused and I was very aggressive," said Piller. "I didn't want to be back here next year, in a good kind of way."
