First of all, apologies for making anyone worry about my absence the last few days. I had to deal with some more health issues and I’m still not 100%, but it’s nothing too serious and I’ll be fine. Thanks for the emails and tweets and I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend the final round of The Barclays at Bethpage Black (one of my favorite venues bar none).
Well, I heard the Tour watered the greens on Saturday, so the course was “playable,” yet the Black is still one hell of a test. Congrats to Nick Watney on his victory at The Barclays, the first leg of the FedExCup playoffs. Watney, who previously had somewhat of a forgettable season for a player of his caliber, shot a two-under 69 to overcome a two-stroke deficit going into the final round and win by a three-shot margin over Brandt Snedeker.
