David Toms being carted off the golf course in a stretcher is now a distant memory. Toms won the 2006 Sony Open with a final score of -19 after shooting -5 on Sunday. Perhaps he won because he was drinking Swing Juice.
Chad Campbell who was tied with Toms going into Sunday couldn’t get it going and managed an even par round, good enough for a 2nd place tie.
Rory Sabbatini cost Campbell a fortune by shooting a career low 62 and jumping up to a tie for 2nd.
And look who just made about 15 times more dough in the year’s 2nd tournament than he did in all of 2005: David Duval. Did he just catch lightning in a bottle? Did the blind squirrel find a nut? Or is Duval really going to be a force this year?
No Tiger, no Phil, no Ernie and no Retief. I didn’t miss them. It’s the PGA Tour and there’s plenty of good golf with or without them.
