Canadian rookie Mackenzie Hughes goes wire-to-wire for his first Tour victory. All it took was winning a FIVE-MAN playoff.
On a Monday.
Final Thoughts from RSM
The winner’s mystery here continues for gamers as the list is long and crooked. Just when it looks like regional players are trending a pair of KSU grads win two of the last three. Kansas State University for Robert Streb and Kent State University for Hughes suggests that non-Bermuda experts can also thrive here.
The Seaside course rolled out a few low ones again this year and the 64 at Plantation by Sunk Kang is the new marker there. This week sunshine replaced torrential rains from last year and yet the scores were even lower. The two lowest tournament totals have been posted the last two seasons suggest that Plantation has opened the door to even more players. At not even 7,100 and par 72 the “get out of jail free card” pushed the cut to a whopping four-under-par.
Luke List (T-7): Nothing outside of T-26 in now FIVE starts and includes a pair of top 10’s.
Russell Henley (T-10): Three in a row inside the top 25 and trending lower the last two. He is a past champion the next time we see him at Sony where he holds the tournament record.
Stewart Cink (T-10): Unbelievable golf in very trying circumstances. T-15, T-15 and T-10 in his last three with his wife battling cancer. Click on my recap below for more details.
Chad Campbell (T-13): Finished the fall with five weekends from five events and T-13 this week is the best of the bunch.
Hudson Swafford (T-36): 17 in a row. Seventeen.
Lucas Glover (T-36): Three decent rounds washed out by 71 on Sunday but he continues to play well.
Caught My Eye
C.T. Pan (T-6): My Twitter followers won’t be surprised he’s starting to put it together. Massive pedigree and is quietly evolving.
John Huh (T-27): He played five events this fall and finished T-39 or better in all of them. He’s only 26 but seems like he’s been around forever.
Seamus Power (MDF): Five tries resulted in four weekends for the Irishman including his last four in a row.
Kevin Chappell (MC): No switch was flipped this week just because of the course which was disappointing for most fantasy players.
Si Woo Kim (MC): I know he won in August but I would be shocked if he continues his PLAY EVERY WEEK EVERYWHERE schedule for next season. Looks like he ran out of gas this month.
Hunter Mahan (MC): And it continues. For gamers who are thinking of sticking him as the last man in salary cap games for 2017, I’m not sure I’d go much higher than that. I have no idea how one of the most consistent players of the last decade has just gone away. The only time you see him on the weekends now is during his ACE Hardware commercials. Woof.
