Durant Misses Tap-In, Loses By One

The longest drive and the shortest putt all count the same on the scorecard, and that was never more painfully true than on Sunday at the Shaw Charity Classic on the PGA Tour Champions. 

Tied with eventual champion Scott McCarron on the 17th hole, Joe Durant stepped up to his short par putt nonchalantly and missed it. 

The dropped stroke put him one behind, and following an 18th hole birdie by McCarron, Durant needed an eagle to force a playoff. Instead, Durant could only muster a birdie of his own, falling one agonizing shot short of the title.

The win was McCarron’s second of the season.
