Wow! You know this got me thinking...My first snarky question was going to be: "I wonder how many tour trucks they'd need to deal with all those guys?", then it immediately struck me that getting those trucks to Hawaii is kind of a problem...A big problem. I really wonder now how any of the OEMs deal with that particular logistical issue...I would think that it would be too wasteful to keep something there all year that only gets used, what, 3-4 times a season? Maybe...How the heck does that work???

They can afford it.

They use the local reps, don't think they send the trucks out here, I've never seen them. I know Kevin Na went to the same place I had my Mizuno fitting done to dial in some stuff a couple years ago.

Side note, we have arrived boys!IMG_20190111_114217.jpeg

Not much chatter about this today. I'm still rooting for Kuch but geeez he faded on the front today. Thankfully the birdie on 9 evened him up with Putman.

Hope he gives his caddy at least enough for a plane ticket back to the mainland.

Great win for Koooch!!  He certainly likes the back nine.

It was a great win for him. He was really nails down the stretch. You just got the sense that it was his after that bird on 9. Just so relaxed and calm.

It was interesting watching the facial expressions of the 2 during the last round.  Kuch's frown turned upside down after the birdie on 9 and you could tell that Putnam knew he lost it from that point on. 

BTW I liked those Hawaiian themed Ping hats!

Indeed! Just like the old bull & the young bull story...
