McGirt’s hardscrabble journey pays off at Memorial
DUBLIN, Ohio — The ball wasn’t even in the hole yet, but William McGirt just knew. He took his right hand off the putter and instinctively raised it in the air, the universal symbol for success. His fist began pumping as the ball tumbled into its destination, the Memorial Tournament title now secured.
On the surface, this was the culmination of a hard-fought playoff victory after an exacting 18 holes of regulation. In reality, it was so much more.
