Kyle Porter, CBS Golf Writer calls yesterday as good a final round as he’s seen in the past few years at a major. He runs through all the various story-lines and how much fun it was and how it kept everyone’s focus with every shot and every hole. He thinks the playoff lacked a bit of juice because Jordan Spieth wasn’t in it.
Kyle explains that Zach Johnson isn’t an overly exciting golfer and so it’s a bit tougher for fans to really enjoy his playing style. He says he isn’t young or a bomber, and he almost looks like a weekend golfer, but in the end, he’s joined a small list of guys who’s won at august and at St. Andrews.
Kyle says the PGA Championship doesn’t lose much juice because Spieth will still be going to win a 3rd major in a single season. He also thinks there is a chance that McIlroy returns by then which would really ramp things up.
