Golfer’s persistence pays off big at RBC Heritage
Matt Kuchar has endured some cruel disappointments lately, but then the “golfing god” finally smiled on him.
Matt Kuchar said something after his scintillating win at the RBC Heritage at lovely Harbour Town that defied explanation.
“I believe in a golfing god,” he said, by way of explaining his epic Sunday 64, and his highlight-reel hole out from a greenside bunker on the 18th, the margin of victory over a game Luke Donald.
Kuchar’s grin, always ear-to-ear, seemed to glow with extra wattage.
What Kuchar meant was, if he kept grinding away and asking the golfing deity for success, he would be rewarded. Seems logical.
Except, this is a curious take from a guy who, while ranked top-10 in the world, and a seven-time winner on the PGA Tour, has never won a major and spent the previous two weeks getting the business end of the stick from those same golfing overlords.
