SOUTHPORT, England -- Back in 2003, a then-unknown player named Ben Curtis was the last man standing at Royal St. George's. Star after star, from Vijay Singh to Davis Love to Tiger Woods, tried to match his early 69, but they all fell short.
This year at Royal Birkdale, everyone knows the guy wearing the American football clothes. Curtis started Sunday's final round in a tie for fifth. The 70 he shot early on Saturday had propelled him up the leaderboard long after he'd left the course.
Curtis has Titleist clubs in his bag, and he switched to a new Scotty Cameron putter earlier this season. You can learn more about it in this post from the Shop's coverage of The Players Championship.
