Don't feel bad if you've never heard of the 22-year-old, ranked 1207 in the world before his playoff win on Sunday, because you aren't the only one.
After the win, Luke Donald, ranked No. 5 in the world, tweeted the following message letting everyone know he was a little in the dark as well.
Never heard of Derek Ernst until this week, shows how deep the fields are on the PGA Tour, welcome to the winners circle #GoodForHim
— Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) May 5, 2013
If you think Donald was saying anything negative about the guy, he pointed out in a response to a follower that he was simply admitting that the fields these days are so deep that a guy nobody has ever heard of can beat the likes of Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood.
