A Crowdless Victory
In what was undoubtedly the strangest of moments ever in the history of the PGA Tour, Daniel Berger stood on the 18th green at Colonial, Fort Worth on June 14th as the champion of the Charles Schwab Challenge, following his one-hole playoff win over Collin Morikawa. As he held the Leonard Trophy - all 42-inches and 55 pounds of it – a smattering of lensmen captured the moment, whilst close to the clubhouse, a handful of of people clapped. And this, dear golfing fanatics, is how it will be for the time being.
Entering Sunday two shots off the lead, Berger made three birdies over the first eight, and despite a minor hiccup at the par-4 ninth, once on the back nine, he remained bogey-free with two birdies, including one at the par-4 18th with a 101/2 foot putt.
