Second sucks.
Right here Baby!!!

WhoITF would take a second place finish, when probably by the next season NOONE will remember you or your runner-up finish???

To win a PGA Tour event and go down in the books as having done what very very very few Tour Players have done, and whether itís opposite field, left field or no field, itís a PGA Tour Victory!!

For one week, you were one of the greatest Players on earth!!

Whether no one ever remember your name or the tornamemt, youíre in the books FOREVER!!

youíre a CHAMPION!!!

And besides, what, are you gonna throw a party and celebrate a friggin second place finish???


Like KYMís says, second SUCKS😝

I hope that your well Bro👊

Ava sends hugs & kisses🤗😘

Competitive golf is all about winning.  I think the 2nd solo at a major better than winning a regular event sounds like present day pro golf attitude. There's no taste like waking up on Monday remembering you won yesterday.

Last Sat I finished second solo at a medal competition at my club.  I spent the rest of the weekend figuring out how I had spent so many shots.  I scored the same as the winner but lost by best second nine holes.  Second place can be very hard sometimes.  A win, NEVER.

No one remembers the first runner up but you always remember the winner.

2009 Open Championship runner up?
2009 Milwaukee Open winner?

"I don't agree 100% with your analysis.  Yes, it's nice to hole out, which I did twice during last weeks game, but didn't need either to win those holes or the match.   All that was needed was a tap in to win each hole.  Of course, I was aiming from 20yds and 15yds with the intent to put the ball in the hole, but the expectation was tap-ins."

Bo Van Pelt was the winner at the final Milwaukee Open.

Said it once already, it's the W. forget the short term reward, more money more fedex cup points. A win of any sort opens up so many more doors especially for the rank and file or rookies. Sponsorships, more tv time, better pairings and tee times, invite to The Players PGA US and British opens. You can set a schedule because you're not relying on sponsor exemptions, or Mondaying for events. Guaranteed for two years...a second does none of that.

An aside if you win the RSM this week do you play this years tournament of champions or the next one?
