Herman musters a third Tour win! I've always wanted to use that headline!
How great though to see a guy that everyone just agrees is super nice like Jim Herman win. His incredible weekend of 61, 63 at Sedgefield Country Club (the tied lowest ever final 36 holes in Tour history) brought him his third PGA win at the 2020 Wyndham Championship and a place in the 2021 Masters.
When you consider Herman's previous best finish this season was 27th at the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua and he had missed eight cuts from 11 starts this calendar year, the 42 year old's win was amazing. It also jumped him from obscurity into the big money FedEx Cup playoffs which begin this week.
