Ben Crane Video still Capture

My favorite slow-as-molasses but good humored golfer, Ben Crane, fired a final-round 63 to force a playoff with a red-hot Webb Simpson yesterday at the McGladrey Classic.  Crane won on the 2nd hole when Simpson missed a short putt.

I’m surprised Crane was able to focus given that his wife is scheduled to deliver their 3rd child today… but talk about having a couple of really great days!

The other standout on Sunday was Bud Cauley.  Cauley skipped his senior year at Alabama to turn pro.  By finished T15 and earning $64k, Cauley all but locked up his tour card for 2012.  He will be only the 6th player in history to go straight from college to the tour without heading to Q-School.
