Simon Dyson sizzles at PGA Championship
TULSA, Okla. - Simon Dyson, the winner of the Finnish amateur, is likely to have his first top-10 in a major, after firing a sizzling 64 in Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship.
“Yeah, I mean, I always thought my best chance of doing well in a major would be in the British Open because obviously I played a lot of links golf. But, my best finish in the British Open has been like 35th or something. So, to finish in the top-10 in the U.S. PGA, which is the top-100 players in the world, it’s something I’ll savor for a long time, unless I do something better the next couple of years.”
Dyson birdied No. 18, the most difficult hole on the course, to close out his round.
“It’s a dream come true, really,” he said. “It’s such a good par-4. When I stodd on the tee, if someone had said you can have 4, I would have walked straight in and taken it.
But, I had a good drive. I was a little blocked out. I had a great 6-iron, probably the best shot all day, and happened to get a soft bounce. It was an uphill putt, so I knew I could give it a go. But, as soon as it came off I knew I had a chance.”
