ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “It was a good year, certainly one of my best in a long time if not my best year. I don't know how else to summarize it. It was just a good year. Certainly getting back in the winner's circle is a lot of fun. It's such a great feeling to win. It's hard to do out here. It had been a while since my last win before my first one last fall, and boy, it was a great feeling. To be able to chalk up two in a year was really nice.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player posted four over-par scores in a single event for just the sixth time in 260 PGA TOUR starts. Who is he?

CAUSE AND EFFECT: For those wondering, the scoring average at the 2019 TOUR Championship was 70.033. Only three players, Xander Schauffele (64), Bryson DeChambeau (68) in the first round and Jason Kokrak (67) in the final round produced a bogey free scorecard. In 2018, the scoring average was a cumulative 69.617. Just one player, Hideki Matsuyama (66) in the second round managed a bogey free card for the entire event. So is the golf ball to blame for this too?

The 2017 scoring average at East Lake was 69.383. In 2016, when McIlroy also won it was 69.615. Rounding our the last five years, 2015 saw the field average was 70.417. Yes, technology has ruined the game at the elite level!

A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA IN THE PAY CHECK: All participants in the 2019 TOUR Championship receive a spot in the following 2019-20 season events:
WGC-HSBC Champions 
WGC-Mexico Championship
THE PLAYERS
Masters Tournament 
U.S. Open 
The Open Championship
