    Nice recap but no mention of IMs admirable claim to fame: living out of hotels while playing practically every week because he just loves to play golf. The guy told someone he doesn’t have many other interests.
    That kind of talk gives me chicken skin. It’s no surprise this guy won.
    Btw IM did not wait for everyone to self destruct; he went after it with ultra gutsy shots into the 2 famous par 3s; the kind you can start to pull off when you play a lot. Even after Hughes made that miracle putt, IM stepped up and drained his bird; again the kind of stuff that happens when a player tests himself regularly.
    IM was high on my list and will continue to because I like rooting for the players whom love golf the most, and this Korean with no other interests, clearly does.

    Climbing up my lists is the Champions Course. With all the talk of power dominating the game, it’s amazing how 18 well watered holes of golf can temper all those top players hot drives.

      This course kicked most of them into the ground…..by the way, I’m waiting for someone to ask Sungjae when he’s going to “get the call from the South Korean Army”……they all have to serve….I heard those BTS kids, singing group weren’t given an exemption…lol

          When you have that Mad Man to the immediate north, you need all the soldiers you can muster. Simple as that.
