FBR Open results

Congrats to J.B. Holmes on his 1st PGA victory (in only his 4th PGA event). It was pretty tight for most of the round...but then he made a CLUTCH eagle on 15 while Ryan Palmer plunked two in the water for a sweet 8...GAME OVER.

J.B. is one of the longest hitters on tour (currently ranked 2nd on tour with a 316 yard average) despite the fact that his swing is actually pretty short. He is a former SEC player of the year and won the PGA qualifying school tournament last year...he is solid. We will definitely be hearing more from this kid. I wish I had picked him up on my golf fantasy team...doh!

Here's a link to the story on

Also, good job to Scott Verplank, a close family friend, on his 2nd place performance. Scott is due a tournament win sometime this year. Mark my words...
