Shot In The Dark Turns Into An Ace

by Jeff Skinner

The PGA Tour’s Fall Series has a tough task: going head to head with the NFL on Sunday afternoons.  It’s pretty tough to attract any viewers while the boys of the NFL are conducting their business.  Late Sunday afternoon the boys of the PGA Tour gave those diehard PGA Tour fans their money’s worth when Jonathan Byrd aced the fourth playoff hole to win the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open. Byrd beat Martin Laird and Cameron Percy in the waning daylight when his shot on the 204 yard17th  found the bottom of the cup.  It was to be the last hole of the day as darkness would have stopped play from continuing.  Percy and Laird both had chances to match Byrd’s ace but both felt the pressure and found the water.  It was too dark for Byrd to see his ball go in and he had to ask if it went in.
