Living in a city where we have had our own terror attack, Las Vegas and Orlando are not only tied in tourism but in attacks. This week the PGA Tour teed it up in Las Vegas, making another step towards normalcy for an amazing city.
The tournament went 2 extra holes with Patrick Cantlay collecting his first PGA Tour victory with a par. He defeated Whee Kim and Alex Cejka with a par after hitting an amazing approach shot over the back of the green from behind 2 trees.
The bigger story of the week was knowing who showed up this week to play. Bubba Watson had planned on taking the rest of the year off but decided to play after the shooting in Las Vegas. Many of his fellow tour players felt the responsability to tee it up in the wake of the shooting to give back to the Vegas community.
While the tour players play every week to win they do an amazing job giving back to the different communities that the events are played in. Kudos to these guys for stepping up and playing this week to help Las Vegas heal.
Dads Say So, the tragedy in Las Vegas is just another act of selfishness by someone committing a heinous act. While, yes, we congratulate Patrick Cantlay on his first PGA Tour Victory, we need to stop and thank the rest of the PGA Tour players who came out this week to tee it up and help a great city return to normal. The cities that have these attacks are never the same as before them but they have a bond that shows these attackers and others just how strong this country can be and our resolve. Together we all say “Viva Las Vegas.”
