You may now kiss…the trophy

Last year’s Monday Qualifier extraordinaire Patrick Reed proved that he could go low and get it done on Sunday, as well, with his victory at the Wyndham Championship. The playoff between Reed and Jordan Spieth will be most remembered for Reed’s remarkable shot from under the trees that he knocked to seven-feet for birdie on the second extra hole.

Wow, you look like a million bucks!

When players are tactfully asked why they’ve blown a tournament or had so many close calls, they usually respond with something like, “I just have to keep putting myself in contention and giving myself a good shot to win — it’ll happen.” How cliche! Well, depending on your luck, it materializes sooner rather than later.

For Webb Simpson, it came true pretty quickly. (Maybe the golfing gods were looking out for him after they basically screwed him over in New Orleans a few months agothough it was for a good cause.)
