On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here – https://www.a2hosting.com/blog/windows-service-update/).  As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old).  We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

WoW, what an approach shot this kid -Adam Long-hit on 18 to beat Phil and Hadwin.

His ball was almost a foot below his feet from 174 yards out... but he pimped it close.

...and then drained the slick breaking right to left bird.

WoW.

That approach shot was the ultimate pimper!

I was rooting for the old man , but good to see the rook win . Especially after hearing about the road he took to get here.

Great story.

The 31-year-old "kid" won his first tourney after competing in Latin America, China and Web.Com.  Ice water flowed through his veins.  Great win.

So that's your definition of a pimped shot, getting it close when not expected.   
 
That putt went in firm.  Might have bounced off the pin if the pin was in.

Was pulling for Hadwin, but good to see Long stay steady and not loose it, nerves of steel down the stretch.

Adam Long has a future on the PGA Tour. Very impressive during last round.

it was a nice story, if you look at his playing stats he has steadily improved over the years but no winning. Hope he can stay the course, to many win and fizzle against the best.
