Oh…oh…oh…I love this story!
They had a professional golf tournament this week down in Scottsdale. The Scottsdale Open. Not part of any tour, just the annual city championship.
But of course, a lot of currently unemployed Tour pros live in and around Scottsdale, so the field was loaded.
You had Joel Dahmen, Kirk Triplett, Kevin Streelman, Colt Knost and others.
So who won? 500 to 1 shot Zach Smith, that’s who. Recent grad of UC-Santa Barbara, he shot 62-67-62 and won by three. His reward? A nice fat check for $20,000.
I’m told that over in Vegas, nobody bought his ticket. Too bad: just a $40 bet would have won you the same amount of money that Zach took home with his giant check.
Love this story!
