Thanks, Lawdog!

William shot a sizzlin' 67 tody and is -4, only 4 strokes off the pace. With a repeat tomorrow and leaders coming back to the field, you never know.

Looking forward to a super finish tomorrow and seeing him at next week's Deutch Bank tourney @TPC Boston. Anyone else from Terrier nation joining me?

Great one over par 72 on the final day. Finished T10 and will get about $150,000 more in the bank plus a big move up the standings in the FedEx Cup. He is around 46th in the FedEx points and exempt into the next event for the top 100. With another made cut next week (top 70 & ties) he will be in the third event with NO CUT. These are big money and big points events, and really mean a lot to William for status next year; money and standings for the future. When you can get into the "no cut" tournaments it really means a lot. Not to jinx him, but.... Keep playing like he is and he could even squeeze into the championship at Atlanta, and wouldn't that be great. At any rate, a great culmination to the season and more rewards. He is now well over $1 million for the year and just keeps moving up the ladder for next year's PGA Tour list. The door will just keep opening to more and more events. Well played....

Lawdog, Hobo, et al.

Great day to watch a golf tourney!!

Followed William as he finished the 10th. Sarah, his wife, was nearby and said hello. She deserves a lot credit for walking the course given she's pregnant.

On the 11th, noticed William was flexing his left forearm and massaging the mid forearm area. On the next hole, he started icing the same area in between shots. He continued to play and was very competitive; however, could see he was uncomfortable.

After he signed his card and numerous autographs, he came over and we spoke. Said he felt and heard something pop on the 9th hole. Experienced pain; but, persevered. Indicated that he was on his way visit a doctor to get an MRI. Told him we were thinking and praying good thoughts; hoping it's nothing serious. He smiled and said, "Me too."

William is just a CLASS act. He was most appreciative I followed him and smiled a couple times I yelled, "Go Wofford Man!" on his great shots and birdies. Introduced him to a good friend of mine from RI who commented afterwards, "Wow - what a friendly guy! Can't believe he spent so much time with us."

I'm hopeful William is fine and the injury is nothing serious; yet, ask Terrier Nation to keep him in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you!!

Looking forward to William having another solid round tomorrow...

Great stuff, WCNHD. I have been following his results but just now checking in here. Got a little distracted by Breitenstein yesterday. :D

Not sure how he is feeling, but he had a solid -2 today and is 32nd going into the final day. Another solid round will lead to another good payday and a ticket to the BMW next week!
