Bill Haas Pulls Away at Congressional

Being no stranger to the big stage, 2011 Fedex Cup Champion Bill Haas found victory at the always-daunting Congressional Country Club.

Beginning the day in a four way tie for first place, Haas knew he could not just back into the title.  Haas made an early birdie at the second before giving a stroke back to par at the 5th.

Even par for the day heading into the 8th, Haas rolled in a 12 foot birdie to reach 8 under for the tourney.  On the following hole, Haas hit another brilliant approach setting up another birdie. Then on the treacherous par 3 tenth, Haas rolled in his third consecutive birdie to take a two shot lead over fellow FJ Staffer Roberto Castro.

Castro stuck with Haas over the back nine but could not chip away at his lead.  Haas led by at least two over the entire back nine and calmly rolled in a three foot putt for par at the last to take home the title. 

"I just kept the ball in front of me,'' Haas said. "Nothing too crazy.'' Always humble, Haas adds a fifth PGA Tour win to his record and moves to 7th in the 2013 Fedex Cup race.

Haas relied on the lightweight stability of his FJ Sport golf shoes throughout the week.
