Senior PGA Championship
Haas thought about that putt again on Sunday at Oak Tree Golf Club as he stared at a 12-footer for par on the third hole of his playoff with Brad Bryant. He wasn’t about to squander another chance to win his first major championship.
“I said (at the time), hopefully, if I get another chance with a putt like that, I’ll do better,” Haas recalled. “So I kind of had a moment of talking to myself over that last putt, saying, you know, go down like a man here. You’ve been putting well all week and you’ve been putting well for a nice stretch here. Just trust it, keep your head steady, hit the putt.”
Haas did, and the ball curved into the right side of the hole. Minutes later, when Bryant’s own 4-footer refused to fall, Haas had won the 2006 Senior PGA Championship — in what was his 90th major championship start.
