Quote of the day
"It was a very strange way to make 3." -- Players Championship winner Martin Kaymer, after holing a big-breaking 30-foot putt on the island green (#17) for par, effectively clinching the championship
As darkness crowded in, I was afraid that The Players Championship was headed toward a Monday morning playoff, which would have meant I would need to wait until Monday to close out the tournament on GuruGolf as well. Not a big deal, but an annoyance, nonetheless. But then Martin Kaymer holed a putt on 17th that got me jumping out of my seat with an exclamatory “Whoa!”. For a final round without Tiger or Phil, that was about as much excitement as there had been all afternoon. And I suspect most viewers had already moved on to other things, with Kaymer sporting a 3-stroke lead during a weather delay.
Only one GuruGolf team had Kaymer this week. But the weekend winner, Shank Attack (-52), did it with Furyk instead. Worst ball honors went to little moe with a symmetric +52.
