A Star In The Making? Kyle Stanley Recovers

A week ago, Kyle Stanley suffered one of the most ignominious collapses in golf history. With a seven shot lead going into the final round, he lost to Brandt Snedeker in a playoff at the end.

This week was different. Stanley went into the final round eight shots behind, and carded a brilliant 65, including three straight birdies to finish. That, combined with overnight leader Spencer Levin’s collapse was enough for a win. Stanley also fought off a terrific run by Golf Boy Ben Crane.

One near-run-thing and a win in two consecutive weeks. In four starts this year, he has a win, a second, two top tens and three top 25s. That’s quite a record.

Another star in the making is John Huh. In three starts to his rookie season, he has two Top 25s and one top Ten. Huh is a graduate of the soon-to-be-eliminated Q School.

So far, it’s shaping up to be a good pro golf season. Next week, Tiger rolls into town for the Pebble Beach Pro Am.
