So when you’ve never placed in the top 10 in a PGA tour event, but are sitting on a 4 shot leading going into the final round, I can only imagine what kind of mental gremlins haunt you during the round. Well, Ted Purdy faced this situation at Harbour Town … and he wilted (although not a lack for trying and chomping on gum like there’s no tomorrow). Stewart Cink shot an incredible 64, to post 10 under par (he was 3 under to start the day!).

When Cink finished his round, Purdy had just made the turn and was at 12 under, but bogeyed 2 holes on the back. Purdy had a birdie chance on the 18th and missed. Once they had to go to a playoff, I knew things were not looking purty for Purdy. But hats off to Stewart Cink. It’s good to see him in winner’s circle after that near miss at the U.S. Open a couple years ago. With the smooth swing that Cink has, he should be winning more.

And in case you’re wondering, Stewart Cink’s swing coach is none other than Butch Harmon.
