NCAA fever hits Innisbrook


PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Nick Watney bolted Doral Sunday night not to celebrate, but to complete his NCAA bracket. He’s a big North Carolina fan, so you can imagine what his Final Four looks like.

It was also easy to predict Gary Woodland’s bracket. Woodland played point guard for Washburn University before transferring to Kansas to play golf.

“How about your boys getting a No. 1 seed?” Michael Connell joked on Tuesday at Innisbrook.

Woodland attended last week’s Big 12 championship game and is holding out hope Kansas makes it to the Final Four, which will be played in Houston the same week he’s playing the Houston Open.

“That would be so sweet,” he smiled. “A home game.”
