That’s a great video by the PGA TOUR, and it pretty much sums up what we all witnessed on Sunday. We had a fun day on Twitter during the final round of The Players Championship, and judging by the engagement with our followers, so did everyone else. And, we can’t lie….we liked seeing Rickie win, obviously.

Elkington, telling Burke he had someone he wanted Burke to speak with, handed the phone to Willie. Elk’s crew quickly turned the camera back on, and while our audio isn’t great – and unfortunately nobody thought at the time to put Burke on speaker – we still feel like we captured a pretty special moment in golf history. You can hear the joy in Willie’s voice, and based on his side of the conversation, you get a pretty good idea of what Burke had to say to Pinehurst’s legendary caddie.
We caught another nice moment earlier in the day when Willie decided to sing a gospel tune for Elk and the crew:
“Obviously (winning the US Open) 10 years ago was something special for me and for the country and for golf itself,” Campbell, 46, told New Zealand Radio. “I fulfilled one of my dreams to win a major and it was fantastic.
“But as everyone knows, it has been well documented, my career since then hasn’t been great. But if I walk away from the game right now I could be very proud of my achievements.”
At Pinehurst, we wish the very best to Campbell, a great champion we are proud to include in the annals of Pinehurst No. 2.
