Kenny Perry, Way Better at Being Almost 48 Than Most People


You have to stand back in awe of a guy like Kenny Perry.

The dude is 48, won his first PGA Tour event in 1991 and swings like a man trying to raise a flag on a flagpole. Today he beat out the longest hitter on tour and the guy that whacked himself in the head with his putter and hit a shot while falling into a pond. Oh, and that same guy dresses like this.

Anyway, Bubba Watson did make it extremely interesting on the 18th hole, pushing his drive "Mickelson-Winged Foot" left before pulling off a bananas punch-cut shot to 11 feet for a birdie and a spot in the playoff with Perry. Right before he hit his putt, CBS decided they'd go with one of the following two ideas -- grab a Bubba Watson voodoo doll and stab it in the arm and leg right as he's swinging the putter back or show a graphic that said "Watson's longest putt made today - 9 feet." I thought that sure was a nice way of jinxing him back to the days before pink shafts were created.

Also, it sure was nice of previously mentioned Woody Austin to three-putt his last two holes to lose by a shot to Perry. I know, I know, on the 18th hole he was technically "off the green" on his first putt, but come on, the dude smoked it so far by the hole I had third grade putt-putt flashbacks. What the hell was that?

All of this is not to take away from Perry, who shot a final round 66 that included an eagle on the par-4 14th hole. It's his second victory of the year, joining Phil Mickelson (2) and Sam's dad (4) as the only multiple winners this season. Also, the victory put him third on the FedEx Cup point list and barring a bad case of the shingles, he'll be a solid member of the American Ryder Cup team.

This is your Tiger-less PGA Tour boys. Kenny Perry, our new dominant daddy.
