Mason Ford never blinked.
Not when he held a one-stroke lead over the best players in the world. Not when one of those players surged to the top of the leaderboard not once, but twice. Not when the pressure of his first PDGA Elite Series win was do-or-die.
“I feel like I prepared really well for the event,” Ford said Sunday in Nashville. “I was very confident on the course. I never doubted myself. Even when I threw a bad shot, I trusted my game, trusted me putt and left it in God’s hands.”
Wysocki torched the Mill Ridge track on Saturday to the tune of a 1077-rated, 12-under round to jump from the chase card into solo possession of the lead with 18 holes to play at the 2021 PDGA National Tour finale.
