In case you missed it, and chances are you did unless you’ve been living under a Cancun rock for the last week, Cameron Beckman outlasted the field at the Mayakoba Golf Classic and a five-pack of others rejuvenated their seasons with solid finishes South of the Border.
Brian Stuard (T-2), Joe Durant (T-2), Skip Kendall (T-4), J.P. Hayes (T-4) and Jarrod Lyle (T-9) all etched out top-10 finishes in Mexico and, more importantly, starts at this week’s Waste Management Open.
It was a particularly notable upgrade for Durant, who has struggled with his game in recent years and was scheduled to play this week’s Nationwide Tour stop in Panama. Now the pressure is on the Bird’s Nest crazies at TPC Scottsdale to learn Durant’s college fight song – Huntingdon (Ala.) College. Hint: It is not “Hail to the Victors.”
