Fittingly, Couples and Azinger were paired together on Sunday, each shooting a par 72 to finish at two-under-par 286, which tied them with nine others for 29th place. After a week off, they will head to St. Andrews, where each would love to make a reentry to the top level of the game.

One player who will not be making the trip to the Old Course is Mayfair, who has never played in the oldest championship and, despite his win at Cog Hill, is not exempt. "For now, I just want to concentrate on the PGA Tour," said Mayfair. "I just figured with everyone going overseas, it was a good week for me to take off."

May the Force be with you, Billy.
