ATLANTA – Nick Watney, who played his weekend middle nines in 58 (a closing 28 on Saturday and opening 30 on Sunday), is no stranger to good rounds at East Lake.

During the 2001 U.S. Amateur at the childhood home of Bobby Jones he carded a 28 on the front nine.

Even if he doesn’t win the Tour Championship, and possibly the $10 million FedEx Cup title, it’s going to be a good few weeks for Watney. He’s scheduled to be married the weekend of Oct. 30-31, will play the WGC-HSBC Champions in China the next week before ending his season with his honeymoon.

Who says golf doesn’t have an off-season?
