Phil struggled Sunday, really struggled early on. I think he was +1 on the round as he made the turn, and it could've been a lot worse. So many shots he was just coming out of them, coming up short with short-irons. As impressive as his round was Friday, it was equally as depressive Sunday.
Yet from 186 yards, with 8-iron, he puts it to 15 feet on the 17th and makes birdie. Suddenly there's life. Then just really hit a mediocre pitch shot on the 18th, coming up 5 feet short, lipped the putt, game over.
But... happy for Vaughn Taylor. He seems like a good kid, hadn't won a tournament in 10 years, you could tell that it meant everything to him to finally do it again.
Phil will have other chances this season, I'm sure. But he missed a great opportunity today, and I know it's gotta be eating at him this evening.
