Despite a nearly three-hour rain delay, it was a tight finish to the end at this year’s Barbasol Championship, where Jim Herman won by one stroke over Kelly Kraft. They both started the day in the same position, and Kelly Kraft bogeyed the 4th and eagled the fifth; Jim Hermanbirdied the 5th to keep his one-shot advantage. Herman’s bogey on 9 brought him back into a share of the lead with 9 holes to go. They both birdied the 11th, but Kelly birdied the 14th to take the outright lead. After another birdie from the duo on the 15th, Kraft made two untimely bogeys on 16 and 17 to put Herman back on top. Two pars on 18, and Jim Herman earned his second career PGA Tour victory and moved into 134th place in the FedEx Cup standings with only two weeks left before the playoffs.
Next week, there are two events: the WorldGolf Championships FedEx St Jude Invitational, and the Barracuda Championship.
