Who thinks the Scottish Open win didn't help him much now eh? Great back-to-back victories and that 66 today was astonishingly good.

My DVR failed me...

Great win by lefty. No question the Scottish Open prepared him for Muirfield. Great finish.

Silliest sentence in the history of TheSandtrap.com, and not because Phil won.

It's an insult to:

Phil.

Grace.

The Scottish Open

Hey, you guys were right. Gotta give you all credit. Guy's on one heckuva run right now.

I missed this until just now, but IIRC, Phil won at Houston once the week before winning Augusta.  For many players, any win is a big deal to them and may mean an emotional let down the next week, but Phil likes to play the week before a major as prep for the major, so, based on what happened today, it is clear that it was a lead up for him, not a mental peak.

 

Other than maybe Tiger and Phil, I can't think of too many guys who have won consecutive weeks on the PGA Tour.  (Villegas won the BMW and Tour Champ consecutively in 2008, but had a week off in between).  I think being in contention take as mental toll for most and there is a natural let down after winning.

How can I give myself a reputation point? Lol, he tore the back nine up!

You are clearly a future guessing genius. :)
