Chris Kirk just couldn’t find much joy in his walk up the 18th fairway on Sunday at the Masters.
On moving day at the Masters, former University of Georgia golfers Russell Henley and Chris Kirk did little of it.
These days, the road to victories and riches on the PGA Tour starts in Athens, Ga., where University of Georgia golf coach Chris Haack is turning out battle-tested players ready to win. Haack’s never had a deeper and more talented group playing the PGA Tour than right now.
The road to the Masters is just getting started, and already two players have combined to win five times on the PGA Tour.
The road to the Masters is just getting started, and already two players have combined to win five times on the PGA Tour. They're not Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Honda Classic winner Russell Henley can only hope the next 14 months are better than the 14 months that followed his first PGA Tour victory.
Tiger Woods left early. Rory McIlroy faded late. And when a most unpredictable Honda Classic finally concluded with a four-man playoff, Russell Henley was as surprised as anyone to be holding the trophy.
Russell Henley made good on his second chance at the 18th hole Sunday and won the Honda Classic after a wild day that began with Tiger Woods walking off the course with a back injury and ended with a four-man playoff.
Russell Henley chipped in for birdie and then hit into the water on his next shot for double bogey. He watched Rory McIlroy throw away a lead with a double bogey and a bogey, only to stand over a 12-foot eagle putt on the next hole with a chance to win.
Henley, who closed with a 72, won for the second time on Tour and qualified for the Masters. Tiger Woods withdrew after 13 holes, citing a lower back injury.
Rory McIlroy is 18 holes away from his first PGA Tour victory in 18 months, a chance to show the world he is back on his game.
Henley said a weekend at Augusta offered some perspective on the success he’s had through his first season and a half on the PGA Tour, a stretch that includes two victories.
“That’s kind of what majors do to you,” said Henley, whose day included three sets of back-to-back bogeys.
