In The Good, Bad & Unusual, Teryn Gregson recaps the AT&T Byron Nelson, where Tony Romo holed out for eagle in his first PGA TOUR start in his hometown, another Dallas resident Sung Kang was caught napping before his win Sunday and Odell Beckham Jr. took up golf this week.
That was the middle of three consecutive clinching birdies for Kang, the 31-year-old South Korean who lives in North Texas.
World No.3 Brooks Koepka showed he was primed for this week's US PGA Championship title defence as he finished fourth at 20 under after a closing 65.
An exhausted Kang said he made a decision to just relax and have fun despite a lack of sleep, with Saturday's play suspended for darkness and the third round completed earlier on Sunday.
"I had a little bit mud on the ball on the left side", he said of his approach to the green on the par-4 13th hole.
A third-round 68 put Kang at 19 under, three strokes ahead of Every (67) going into the fourth round. He will have 27 holes to play Sunday before he can win the tournament. But he was only 1 under through 10 holes when play stopped, his only other non-par hole being a bogey at the par-5 No. 7.
But he birdied eight, nine and 10, and settled down on the back nine as he regained the form that saw him shoot a second round 61. Then Every, faced with a nine-footer for par that probably looked longer than that after Kang's make, missed the par-save putt and suddenly Kang has a solid two-shot cushion that grew to three when he followed that with another birdie putt (a seven-footer) at the short par-4 16th-his third birdie in a row.
Sung Kang holds his club in his teeth after his shot of the 12th tee n the final round of the Byron Nelson golf tournament on Sunday, May 12, 2019, in Dallas.
