2013 Golf: Kuchar/English Put On Scramble Clinic In Naples…Florida

Mandatory Credit: Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

In case you’re looking for pointers on how to play a scramble, be sure to watch the reruns of the Franklin Templeton Shootout final on Sunday afternoon. Matt Kuchar and Harris English put on a clinic. At 14 under par, and a 34 under par total, it wasn’t a question who was going to win, it was who would finish in second place.

Matt Kuchar has had a very nice year, and we saw what he could do when playing with Tiger Woods at the Presidents Cup back in September. He appears to be just a good partner when playing in the buddy system. Harris English has a ton of talent, and I am expecting for him to break out of the pack soon. Maybe this upcoming year.

It was a strange pairing with a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket mated up with a Georgia Bulldog, but they found a way on Sunday to lap the field. Both live in the same neighborhood at Sea Island, and I assume are good friends.

They certainately picked up a nice check on the 20th anniversary of the Sharks year-end finale’.¬†For their troubles, Matt Kuchar and Harris English, each pocketed $385,000 dollars.

Two-time US Open Champ, Retief Goosen and Swede, Freddie Jacobson were able to hold off the Lee Westwood/Ian Poulter team for second place. Goosen and his partner finished at 27 under par, seven strokes back and pocketed $242,500 dollars each. Poulter and Westwood made $145,000 each for third place.

Tournament host, Greg Norman finished tied for eighth place with his partner, Jonas Blixt. They were joined by Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker. All made $80,000 dollars.
