I agree. A bit tentative at the end but closing is never easy. I felt bad for him ast year's Players even though he hit too much club at 17. I like the guy. You don't hear him mentioned as much as Kim, Villegas, (I like these guys too) and others...but I expect a lot more wins from him.

Give it some time, he will be right up there!!

I heard that he is a high school drop out... is this true? just curious

O'Hair's back story is that his father pushed him into pro golf at a very early age; their relationship is so strained that Sean last talked to his dad in years.

This was a fun event. In Yahoo! Fantasy Golf, I had both O'Hair and Glover going, so it was fun to watch them battle it out. I couldn't lose!

wins the quail hollow championship by 1 over Lucas Glover! deserves it after losing it at bay hill! congratulations!

You are right. He has redeemed himself, and will now be invited to next year's Masters, and is 3rd now in FedEx points. It is too bad that he three-putted the last green, but the speed of that first putt really fooled him. He is a nice guy, and proves that "nice guys do NOT finish last".

He beat a stellar field including Tiger and Phil (who charged back today with a 67!)

yea he played some really nice shots throughout the tournament and done really well to hold out a good round of Bubba Watson on the last day.

Sean O'Hair is one of my favourite players. I hate the way he plays so slowly, but the story with his father is absolutely horrendous. If you haven't read the detailed story, it will amaze you and break your heart because his father is truly about the most detestable creature I have ever heard of.

For O'Hair to have survived, let alone succeeded is a testament to his incredible inner strength. If ever there was an example of how NOT to parent, O'Hair's father is it. Here is a mild quotation: "I was in business 20-plus years, and I know how to make a profit. "You've got the same old thing -- it's material, labor and overhead. He's pretty good labor."

It certainly was a great win.....glad to see his wife and childeren there to celebrate it with him.

It is sweet justice after the Bay Hill tourney......he held on and made it....although he was making me nervous by not hitting the putting green sooner after signing his card.

Tiger certainly had his chances today but just couldn't get it done....Phil, also had a great run on Sunday. Sean has the satisfaction that he beat out the best players in the game and WON!!!!!

Well done, the 3-jack on 18 notwithstanding......especially after the melt-down at Bay Hill. I was glad to see him break through.

I'll bet that we're gonna see a lot of him on TV on Sunday afternoon in the upcoming years.

Yea have been watching him this year. A very good ball striker, if he can clean up his putting game a little bit he could be a dangerous player.

After the first round, SOME people were ready to concede the tournament to Tiger. Then, he failed to keep his lead, and showed once again, as he did in the Masters, that he is a great frontrunner, but not so good at coming from behind.

a little worried about how Sean closes out his final rounds...but I like him going into the Players. I think Sawgrass can suit his style of play quite well

I agree that you simply cannot be leaving yourself a 30 foot downhill putt for birdie on the 18th hole if you're trying to win a tournament, but those last three holes were so hard, everyone was "melting down" in the end.

That last green was designed so pros would three-putt it. Brutal stuff. All my favorite tournaments have a par-5 finishing hole where you can pull off an eagle and steal the event, but maybe that's just because Torrey Pines '08 was the coolest thing ever. It's definitely not as fun watching these guys roll up to the 17th tee and thinking "+1 golf over these last two holes is a great score."
