|Dan Wins The Bridgestone Invitational!|
|He successfully defends his title and picks up his 3rd win of the year...|
Lots of players had 2 of the top 3 golfers this week (and
everybody had winner you-know-who), but Dan was the only one to
have all 3 top finishers and, after a close first three days,
won handily by almost $555k over Dave B. It was Dan's 3rd win
of the year and his $3,181,167 total is only the 16th time a
player has had a team win over $3 million in a tournament (the
Record Book page lists all the others). Steve was 3rd, $27,500
behind Dave. Brian caught the bubble spot this week, missing
the money by only $7,500.
The top 4 in the Summer Season race remained the same: Bill, me, Mike D. and Steve, in that order.
In the Year-Long standings, Bill remained on top by about $1.4 million. Steve moved up to 2nd from 4th. Jordie stayed in the final money spot and Brett fell 2 positions to 4th. This one's still tight, with 2nd and 6th places separated by about $600k.
Don't take a break. We are playing again this week and it is the final major of the year, Glory's Last Shot, The PGA Championship. The picks are due in about 3 days. This year's version of the forgotten major is in Rochester, New York at the Oak Hill Country Club. I think Shaun Micheel won last time they played there, so this might be a good "nobody wins major" golf course. If I don't recognize the name, I'm picking'em. And I'm taking lots of club pros too.
Get those picks in on time.
