Seeing a Geoff Shackelford with a putter in his hands at Riviera is a good thing happening in Golf.

There can always be drama with amateurs. I haven't seen much pro heartbreak at 6. 2014, 2.95. 2017, 2.94.

Played Riviera 20 years ago and I hit the ball on the correct side with the pin. Would have been more fun to be in bunker or the wrong side!
