Here’s this week’s What It Means:
1) Congrats to Hunter Mahan on winning the Accenture Match Play Championship over Rory McIlroy today. He’s going to contend in multiple majors, I really believe it. He’s got the game and the mental tenacity for it. It’ll just be his ability to close in a big spot which will determine if he’s successful or not.
2) McIlroy had a chance to become number one in the world if he could have defeated Mahan in the championship match but got off to a slow start and never recovered. McIlroy will get to number one soon enough and the fact that he fought back from some inconsistent play earlier in the week to make it to the final shows how his swing changes are becoming more locked in.
3) Congrats to John Huh who defeated Robert Allenby on the EIGHTH PLAYOFF HOLE to win the Mayakoba Classic. Huh played well earlier in the West Coast Swing, and now gets his first PGA Tour win in FEBRUARY of his rookie year! Very, very impressive.
