Now I’m no golf professional, but I still can’t believe that Poston went for the hero shot on the final hole of the 3M Open yesterday, down three shots to winner Lee Hodges (who had already safely laid up 115 yards out). Poston after the round on Twitter:
Not out here to finish 2nd. Trying to win. Would make that decision 10 times out of 10 under circumstances
That decision cost him $260K – solo second would’ve paid $850K, but the three-way tie for second gave each player $590K.
So unless I’m missing something, he was betting that he could make eagle and that Hodges would put it in the water from 115 yards *plus* not be able to get up and down to force a playoff? 🤔
It’s really hard to cheer for someone wearing a “MegaCorp” hat who also takes a million “waggles” before every single shot – hit the damn ball already, my dude
