Graham DeLaet Wows PGA Crowd
Former Boise State golfer Graham DeLaet will never forget a four hole stretch in the 2017 PGA Championship that got him right back into contention and led to his first ever top 10 finish in a golf major.
DeLaet finished just four shots behind the PGA Champion Justin Thomas earning $317,500. Delaet posted rounds of 68 and 69 over the weekend but it was a four hole stretch on Saturday that led the former Bronco to replay on national TV "are you kidding me?"
It all began at the 13th hole where he almost had a hole in one but settled for a birdie. At the 14th, a short par 4, DeLaet drove the green and almost holed that one as well! He was more than happy to settle for and eagle.
At 15 there was another eagle in his bag and the run wasn't over. A birdie at 16 completed a four hole stretch of 6 under par golf, a spotlight interview on national TV where DeLaet asked the announcer, "did this just happen?".
DeLaet's previous best finish in a golfing major was 15th in the 2015 PGA Championship.
