Another week, another playoff. That makes it 3 straight weeks of playoffs. This week it was Lucas Glover (again, who I was going to add to my squad this week!) and the 3rd round leader Jonathan Byrd. Glover, playing 1 group ahead of Byrd made par on 18 for a 15 under total. Byrd, needing to make birdie to force a playoff hits his approach on 18 to about 12/15 feet and calmly rolls in the birdie. The playoff was a little one sided with Glover hitting the green in reg where as Byrd found a bunker off the tee, then nearly hit into the water and needed to make a 25 foot putt with 5 foot of break to force the playoff to continue. He missed his putt and Glover rolled in his par putt for victory. Earlier in the day Rory Sabbattni closed with a 7 under 65 to hold the club house lead at 14 under and it looked like he would be in a playoff but some clutch shots by Glover and Byrd denined him his second win of the season.
The leading squad for the week was SauceBottle who was hoping Byrd could have hung on for victory but over $725,000 for the week in prize money is still a great effort. blueberrysmissus, the overall leader had another quiet week but still holds onto a $1.7M lead over second placed Blackberry....mmm, I wonder what is in the water at the the Berry household!
