Jason pulled some clutch golf shots the three goes he ahd at 18 Sunday. He left himself in near perfect postion for goes at the green on the first and second playoff holes after nearly giving up the goat on the 72nd due to the awkward stance just outside the bunker.
If you had to pick a player to go head to hed against in a two hole playoff for your first PGA Tour win who would pick Ernie Els?
Lastly, let me put on my Superintendant/Architect hat for a moment yet again. How differently, and how much better, would 18 have played had the fairway bunkers not been buried ten yards in the rough. Make them a true hazard and prevoke thought off the tee, skin the grass down to fairway height so that balls funnel into them and not get mercifully hung in the weak rough a few yards short. How much do you value that flatter lie along the left side when the meanacing maws of those bunkers are agape ready to swallow the lazily executed drive?
Kudos again to Mr. Dufner. And big props to FJ for showing well yet again.
