Congratulations to Danny Lee on a championship run through the Net Division Bracket. He played great golf and survived some strong competition, securing the win in three of his matches on the 18th hole, including his 2up win over Brian Blankenship in the final. There were several highlights during the event, but none bigger than the eventual champion’s “walkoff” ACE on #17 in his quarterfinal […]
