The winner of the 2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic was the American golfer Daniel Berger. Currently, the tournament is being played in its scheduled venue, i.e. Memphis with prize money of $6.4 million. A lot is happening in the series, right from the records being broken to some of the major disappointments being faced. Here are the highlights of the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic.
The Crowning Moments of the Tournament
Post 54 holes in the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic; there is a 3-way tie up in the series with Ben Crane, Stewart Cink, and Rafa Cabrera Bello- all 3 tying up at nine under par. Cink has won 6 PGA Tours in his career while Crane has won 4. Cabrera Bello is in search of his first ever PGA Tour win. Out of the three, Cink is the most favorite and very likely to win his career 7th PGA Tournament. Speaking about the leaderboard, Luke List and Chad Campbell lie just behind the three aforementioned players.
It started with Cabrera Bello who became one of the three players to goal 5-under 65 joining Scott Stallings and Tyrone Van Aswegen. Speaking of the other players, 21 golfers including Phil Mickelson are within the 4 shots of the lead. Speaking of the most impressive shot, it should be none other than Whee Kim who birdied 2 of his previous 3 holes the time when he reached to the par-5 16th. Not to mention, the player tried to improve by making a hole in the wedge right from one hundred and eighteen yards for eagle.
The Biggest Disappointment of the Tournament
It would be none other than Rick Lamb who drowned with 77 on Saturday. He fell off straight 57 spots on the scoreboard. Lamb stumbled right from 36-hole mix after opening 68-67. Not to mention, his back 9 was also nothing less than a nightmare.
