Eugene Wong stepped to the last tee of the Canadian Tour Championship at Scarboro down a shot, staring a par-four in the face. He drove solidly into the middle of the fairway, 133 yards away. He'd need to get up and down just to go to a playoff. He put it up and in.
"There's a funny story to that shot," confessed Wong. "My caddie and I were walking up the fairway, and he said 'it would be nice to hole it right now, wouldn't it? I said 'yeah, it would.'"
Wong, still just 21 years old, was the NCAA's top golfer in 2010, and was playing just his third career event on the Canadian Tour. The Canadian international missed the cut in his first and only PGA event last month, so he needs to work on his Thursdays and Fridays, but we already know he can finish.
