Wyndham Recap

It was a frustrating week from start to finish, but an outright disaster was avoided thanks to Kevin Na.  A strategy evaluation in these lesser tournaments is needed, and I apologize to those who tailed.  The logic was there, the performances were not.

Jason Kokrak

Hit two balls out of bounds on the Par 5 16th in round one and never recovered, losing three shots to the field on one hole.  Looked completely disinterested on Friday, and easily missed the cut.  Disappointed to say the least.

Sungjae Im

For the third consecutive time with Sungjae, he finished one shot outside the Top 20.  He was T12 going into Sunday, but could only muster a final round of 68.  Close but no cigar as the putts from point-blank distance just weren’t falling.

Webb Simpson

Ho hum performance from the Wyndham legend.  He duffed several chips throughout the tournament and missed crucial putts down the stretch, but a Top 10 finish is all we needed.

Brian Harman

Can summarize his performance in one word—awful.  His scrambling was terrible and when in proper position, Harman failed to capitalize.  

Patton Kizzire

Made eight birdies in two days yet shot even par to miss the cut.  Only had four holes of bogey or worse…and those holes were catastrophic.  To sum up the week properly, he was sitting 135 out in the fairway and found a way to make triple after blading a chip 75 yards over the green.  

Kevin Na

Always trust your gut.  Na had a vintage week en route to a T2 playoff loss.  Nice payoff at 5-1 odds to Top 10.  

Charl Schwartzel

“The bermudagrass specialist” lost 5 strokes on putting over two days and was utterly uncompetitive.  The other end of the ‘trust your gut’ spectrum.
