Harrison FrazarWhat a cool story unfolded this past weekend on the PGA Tour.  Yet another playoff happened as the The FedEx St. Jude Classic came down to two players, Robert Karlsson and long time tour journeyman Harrison Frazar.  Both players had separated themselves from the field by five shots, making it a two horse race Sunday.

The last few regulation holes saw the nerves of both players getting the best of them.  Nobody seemed to want to win, or at least have enough control over their nerves to show it.  Frazar could have won the thing in regulation, but his approach on the final hole found the water left of the green.  As a result, he and Karlsson finished at -13 and a sudden death playoff in ensued.

Each player parred the first two holes of the playoff.  On the 3rd, the par-4 12th, Karlsson pushed his approach shot right of the green and was unable to get up and down for par.  Harrison Frazar, who hit the green in regulation, two-putted for his first victory in 13 years on the PGA Tour.  That first victory came on the 355th attempt.

Congratulations from HOG to Harrison Frazar.  Hope the next victory comes a little quicker than the first.
