    Tom I don’t think Shen Shen cited it wasn’t worth the effort. She said her feet were killing her.

    But DJ certainly reminded me of Shen Shen. It was extremely predictable DJs motivation and focus would be almost zero, while Corey would be professional as ever. The consolation match was easy money for the gamblers.

    So was the final. Even a match play guru like Kis was never gonna beat Sheffler this week. We didn’t get drama to the end. But let’s appreciate may play for that. It doesn’t waste our time with 2-3 hours longer of a coronation.

    As I’ve said there should be another 2 matches Sunday morning and afternoon. I get players may not want to be there but sometimes you gotta work a little extra to make the product better. DJ was predictably checked out, but for every DJ or Shen Shen, there are 10 guys who will fight to the end.

    This event should be 6 rounds, it’s 7, either way it’s also arguably golfs endurance event. Physically is one thing, but it’s fascinating how In one year Scottie went from hitting the wall to running thru the wall.

    It was a great week. It was a great Sunday. I saw two rounds of of match play. Basically saw a legends being born. Then Played my own 9 hole match with the boys. My performance was Nowhere close to Scotties, but then again neither was anyone else’s.

    We saw a clinic Sunday. A very short and sweet clinic. Scottie outmuscled DJ and our small balled Kis. There was nothing left to be seen.
