Wow, Tiger just sinks a birdie putt to tie Sean O’Hair at 5 under par on the 15th hole. Now, there’s 3 more tough holes to go and either Tiger or Sean will win it.
It’s going to be a test of who can stand the heat under competition.
Now, a little bit about Sean O’Hair from Wikipedia:
O’Hair entered PGA Tour Qualifying School regularly from 1999, but was unsuccessful at his first five attempts. He played on various developmental tours: the PGA Tour’s official second-level developmental Nationwide Tour, the third-level Gateway Tour and the Cleveland Golf Pro Tour. He had limited success, making the cut in only four out of eighteen starts at Nationwide Tour level.
In 2004 O’Hair made it through all three stages of PGA Tour Qualifying. His 2005 season was a dramatic success. He won the John Deere Classic and finished second at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. His season earnings came to $2,461,482 and he won PGA Rookie of the Year honors. In March 2006 he was the youngest man in the top fifty of the Official World Golf Rankings. After he established himself as the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year distinction with his strong finish at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship and victory at the John Deere Classic, his estranged relationship with his father, already highlighted on a 2002 episode of 60 Minutes, became well-publicized. It was also profiled by Sports Illustrated’s Rick Reilly.
O’Hair’s 2006 season was less successful. He dropped out of the top fifty—finishing no higher than fourth at the Buick Open in Michigan—but returned to the list with a 3rd place at the Canadian Open. He continued to play well in major events, finishing in the top fifteen at the British Open and the PGA Championship. He finished at +13, tied for 26th, at the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot.
Sean O’Hair is a very interesting young PGA pro, who’s actually dropped out of high school to pursue his golfing career. It’s amazing that he even made it this far, he took a big chance. It took Sean about 5 times of Q-school before he even started playing on PGA Tour.
Back to golf, Tiger’s errant tee shot on the 16th made him lay up, now his 3rd shot finishes about 3 feet from the hole, guaranteed par while O’Hair dumps his 2nd shot into the water.
Oh huh, looks like Tiger will definitely win this one unless Sean O’Hair can birdie out the last 2 holes on 17th and 18th.
