It was a steamy Sunday at The Memorial. 42-year-old Bart Bryant won his 2nd PGA tournament, shooting 68 and -16 for the tournament. The winner’s check of $1 million will surely make his career. Said Bryant, “It’s huge. It’s a real honor to win here at Jack’s tournament. That was history in the making with what happened Friday, and I’m glad to be part of it.”

Bryant pulled off a pretty impressive par 4 on the final hole. His 5-wood drive bounded too hard and into the hazard (staying on the bank a half foot from the water). Luckily, Bryant could drop his ball (after taking the penalty) on the fairway for his drop. He then stiffed his approach shot to 15 feet away. Using the claw grip, Bryant rolled his putt in, sneaking the ball in on the low side.

Fan favorite Fred Couples placed second at -15, shooting 69 today. Fred made some quality shots and big birdies on the back nine, but seemed to lose some steam down the stretch. He missed a 5-footer downhiller for eagle on the 15th, which probably would’ve won the tournament had it gone down. Fred did make birdie. But, after a bogey on the next hole, Fred missed a makeable birdie on 17th from about 15 feet. On the 18th, Fred was DOA after he airmailed the green.

Biggest surprise: Adam Scott shooting 81 today, going from -8 to +1 for the tourney. Apparently, it wasn’t a good day for Butch Harmon’s crew with Freddie coming up short again. Not to be outdone by Adam Scott, Bill Haas shot 80. Leaderboard here.
