B and then the couple of missed opportunities.”
The one that bothered Kuchar the most was
a double-bogey at the par- 4 ninth on Sunday
when he missed the green then three-putted
from inside 10 feet.
“To have that double-bogey on nine, it’s too
bad,” Kuchar said. “But I take a lot of pride in
coming back on the back nine the way I did, mak-
ing a great run and getting there for a moment
after the eagle at 15. It was just a real thrill.”
Chris Kirk came to Harbour Town after five
weeks away from golf following the birth of his
first child but he brought plenty of experience
Mark Love, who caddied for his brother
Davis in two of his five Heritage victories, cad-
died for Kirk last week. It was the first time in
three years that Love had caddied in a PGA Tour
event. He spends the bulk of his time working
with his brother in their course design busi-
ness and with his involvement in the McGladrey
Classic at Sea Island.
“It was fun getting back out,” Love said.
Love has been working as Kirk’s teacher for
three years at Sea Island.
“He’s been a huge help in a lot of ways,”
Kirk said. “He’s helped me with my swing and
he’s given me all kinds of advice. He’s become
a close friend.
“With all the years he had with Davis, he
knows his way around (Harbour Town). It’s been
fun having him in this environment.”
There was a time when Hank Kuehne was
a phenom. His prodigious power and his 1998
victory in the U.S. Amateur set him up for what
seemed to be a big career on the PGA Tour.
WE VE IMPROVED ON THE
DIMPLE BY ELIMINATING
TRADITIONAL DIMPLE PATTERNS
Dimples had their day. When the circles of traditional
dimples meet, a portion of the ball’s surface goes
unutilized. This unused surface area can lead to higher
drag forces acting on the ball during flight, which can
compromise trajectory and distance.
The age of the dimple is over. HEX Aerodynamics® —
proprietary to Callaway — provides 100% surface
area coverage while dimples typically provide up to
88%. The result is a golf ball that virtually eliminates
smooth spots and seams that can cause unnecessary
drag and inconsistent flight characteristics.
