With the beginning of football season on the docket as well as the US Open Finals scheduled to conclude on the same day, the television schedule was a sports junkie’s paradise last weekend and made the DVR and invention as important as the light bulb for any die-hard…….However, if you didn’t choose to watch or record the Final round of the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick you really did yourself a disservice…….what a final round!
The third stop on the playoff train once again showed that the cream rises to the top and the final leaderboard looked like something you’d have hoped for if you were a fan viewing at home or at the course looking to see something special………with the final cut-down the previous week moving to only fifty players in the field, we were assured of quality and there was no doubt that all of the horses were in the field and most had brought their A-games, once again.
Crooked Stick, once the home to the PGA Championship (remember when we all saw John Daly for the first time??!!), yeah that was Crooked Stick………but it sure looked like a different golf course all these years later with the technology and equipment having been revolutionized since Big J.D. seemed to overpower it in 1991. Nonetheless, scoring was critical as only the top 30 in the Fedex Cup standings would survive the week and move on to the next and final leg of the playoffs, the Tour Championship in two weeks, to be followed closely by the Ryder Cup.
From the beginning, the course looked outclassed, yielding some really low scores on Thursday and Friday. Tiger Woods held on throughout the weekend and remained in the thick of it until the very end rather than fading however, when the dust settled, it was once again the World’s #1 player, Rory McIlroy who came away with both the win and the lead in the FedEx point standings. Lee Westwood (who also put together a nice Sunday for once) came in second followed closely by Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. Also posting good numbers were Robert Garrigus, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott and 49-year old Vijay Singh who had lead through 54 holes.
