  1. Jordan Thomas bio says he “writes up quick-hit posts”.
    Definitely too quick this time, 2 sentences and 2nd sentence has 4 errors.
    It was his final round, not his final day. 10 pars & 8 birdies isn’t right.
    ….final hole “gain” ? No, it was a “birdie”. Finish “on 18 under” ?
    No, it was 19…….he started the final round -12, then had 7 birds & 11 pars.

    • Thanks. He wrote up yesterday ahead of time and wasn’t updated with final birdie. FWIW, it was Phil’s “final day” at Pebble and a “gain” is a birdie.
