Here's a story you definitely don't want to show your significant other when you're getting set to go out for a day on the links. Leading off the final day of the PGA Championship, Jeff Overton cranked his way around Whistling Straits Sunday morning in a time of two hours, nine minutes.
Two hours! Shoot, Sergio Garcia and Ben Crane spend that much time setting up over the ball for their rounds! The mark set a new PGA Tour record, besting by one minute the pace set by the immortal Phil Blackmaar at Crooked Stick in 1991.
And if Overton had played a little better, he might have even cut a few more minutes off that mark. He shot a 79, but hey -- at least he did it quickly. (Overton was playing first and alone because Ian Poulter had to withdraw from the PGA Championship because of illness.)
So in an era where five-hour rounds are considered the norm, we salute you, Mr. Overton ... salute you as you run past.
