As Sunday started there was a threat for weather so the PGA Tour does what they always do and have threesomes off split tees. This looks like a great move as Stuart Cink had thunder clapping over him in the 18th fairway today.
Before the storms came into Ft. Worth there was an old fashioned western shoot out unlike something that they use to have in “Cow Town.” Jordan Spieth shot a Sunday 65 to position himself 1 shot back of Kevin Kisner who drove his ball in the right rough.
Kisner advanced his second shot over the back of the green and putted from the fringe down to four and a half feet. Kisner made his par save and had to wait on Webb Simpson who had a chance to birdie the last and tie him at -10.
Simpson hit a wedge from 149 out of the rough into the front left bunker and when he missed his bunker shot Kisner won his second title on the PGA Tour. There was a 3 way tie for second with Spieth, Sean O’Hair and the human ATM machine Jon Rahm.
The move of the day came from 50 year old Steve Stricker who moved up 25 spots into a tie for 7th with a 63! That is a great score any day on any course but on Sunday at Colonial that is an amazing score. The shot of the day came from Brian Stuard who one hopped one into the hole on 10 today for an ace!
Dads Say So it is another week where a golfing dad gets the “W” on the PGA Tour. This all but secures Kevin Kisner’s spot on The Presidents Cup Team. We were also happy to see Webb Simpson not only in the final group but also get a top 5 finish. Since the anchoring ban was implemented he hasn’t played that well and it seems that he is coming into form! Colonial Country Club is an old golf course that every great player has won on. Past champions such as Hogan, Nicklaus, and Palmer highlight the Wall of Champions off the first tee. 20 years from now people may be talking about Kevin Kisner the same way,
