Ever wanted to play on the PGA Tour? I have. I still want to. I dream about it twice a week, with the other five dreams going to my hope to be a backup singer for Lady Gaga (only partially true). So, what if someone told you that you'd be a member of the 2011 PGA Tour, and you'd get a million bucks? That isn't a bad day, right?
Troy Merritt got both of those Sunday at the Disney. Fighting for his life for next season, Merritt closed with a final round 67, good enough to secure his spot for next year. Along with that, he got in a playoff for the Kodak Challenge, the coolest thing the PGA Tour does over the course of a season that nobody's heard of. Merritt was in a playoff with Rickie Fowler and Aaron Baddeley for the million dollar bonus, and hit one of the most clutch shots of his life to about two feet. He rolled in the birdie and cashed in on the million bucks.
