  2. Mackenzie Hughes:

    Im shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday, finishing at 6 under to match the second-highest winning score since the Honda moved to PGA National in 2007. He was the tours rookie of the year last season, plus has played more tournaments and more rounds than anyone since the 2018-19 season began nearly a year and a half ago. And now, hes a winner, picking up $ 1.26 million this week and becoming the Hondas 10th international champion in the last 16 seasons. Im birdied four of his first five holes, then birdied two of the final four after sticking tee shots on the tough par-3 15 and 17th holes within 8 feet both times to finish off the victory. Mackenzie Hughes, a Canadian who made the cut on the number Friday, shot Mackenzie Hughes second consecutive 66. Playing alongside Im, Mackenzie Hughes was part of some serious fireworks on the last two holes and missed a birdie putt at the par-5 finishing hole that would have gotten Mackenzie Hughes into a tie for the top spot. I love being in the mix.

  5. Chris Shuman:

    This is in pretty shallow water generally, so there is every chance this is just ‘warm springs’ or seeps of ground water flowing from the mountains inland that make their presence known in this particular area, the other possibility is that warmer water from Beaufort currents or out of the Mackenzie River is finding its way to the surface due to interacting with the bathymetry, just the way some polynyas form.
