I’m sure the PGA Tour breathed a collective sigh of relief when Johnson Wagner edged out Matt Every for the Sony Open title. No more questions about suspensions, marijuana and what Every meant when he said: “There’s a lot worse stuff going on out here than what I got in trouble for.”
Wagner has two previous PGA Tour Victories: the 2011 Mayakoba Golf Classic and the 2008 Shell Houston Open. This latest win makes him fully exempt through 2014.
It wasn’t easy, though. Six different players had a share of the lead in the final round. In the end, Wagner worked a two shot lead over Carl Pettersson, Sean O’Hair, Harrison Frazar and Charles Howell III. That’s the kind of competitive depth I hope/think we’ll see this year on tour. Like the NFL, I really think its become a matter of “on any given Sunday.” From a fan’s point of view, that’s great.
And the moustache? Johnson said he decided he’d wear it for the year if he made it to the Masters. Now, he says, “This is potentially a ten year mustache.”
