Canadian Graham DeLaet may have been on the losing side of the Presidents Cup on Sunday, but he proved his match-play prowess by holing out on the 18th hole in not one, but two matches. Playing with Jason Day in foursomes, DeLaet chipped in for birdie to halve the match with U.S. team juggernaut Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley. Then later in the day in singles, he holed a bunker shot on 18 to take down U.S. whiz kid Jordan Spieth 1-up. See the video above.
``It was unbelievable,'' DeLaet said about the shot against Mickelson and Bradley. ``Just one of the coolest feelings in my life, really.''
After the Spieth match, DeLaet sounded almost as amazed as the fans at Muirfield Village.
``Pretty crazy finish the last two times here,'' he said. ``I executed them both well, but there's some luck involved as well. I mean, it's super exciting to finish like that. To win the match here and then to halve the match this morning, it makes it even better.''
