Thank you, thank you very much

Brendon Todd, with no PGA Tour victories to his name and butterflies in his stomach, arrived at the par-13 13th hole with a two-shot final round lead over Mike Weir, who had minutes ago drained a birdie putt on the same green to reach -12.

Or a loss.

He’s back!

The 609th ranked player in the world does not normally finish in second place at a PGA Tour tournament.  However, a player ranked that low is almost never an eight-time winner on the PGA Tour including the 2003 Masters Champion.  Mike Weir has gone from the No. 3 player in the world to the No. 609 player, but it was great to see flashes of the old Mike at the HP Byron Nelson.

Brendon Todd was on a mission to capture his first PGA Tour win at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.  He chipped in from the bunker on two to tie a surging Mike Weir for the lead, and made key par saves down the stretch to win the Byron in dramatic fashion.  After the round, Todd said, “My short game was on fire, that’s what really got me through.”

One for one to begin the season

In 2011, Patrick Cantlay was one of the best stories in the golfing world.  He was named Player of the Year as a freshman at UCLA, he made five of five cuts on the PGA Tour (four top-25s), was low amateur at the U.S. Open, and runner-up at the U.S. Amateur.  Based on his accomplishments as an amateur, he should be thriving on the PGA Tour today.

David Duval is fighting injury and a sporadic playing schedule, but remains confident in his game.

David Duval birdied four of his final five holes to shoot a four-under 66 in the opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.  The birdie barrage included chip-ins on five and seven (his back nine), and the 66 placed Duval one back of Peter Hanson heading into the second round.
