For his first PGA
Tour win Weekley beat one of the best players in the game, and he did it down
the stretch on holes that were raw and demanding. But he doesn't see it in
one-on-one terms. "I didn't just beat Ernie," the winner said. "I
beat 132 people in the field this week. I beat the golf course. That was the
whole key, just playing the golf course."
When you win your
first big event, that's what you do, you beat the golf course, and all the
people on it along the way. When you've won and lost as much as Ernie Els, you
find it gets a little more complicated. You have to beat the golf course,
everybody on it--and yourself.
