One word to describe your partner: I’d use two words: prepared

Dream foursome: My dream foursome would actually be a three- some. It would consist of myself, my brother Brad- ley Humphrey and my father Charles Humphrey. Unfortunately, both my brother and father are deceased. While they were alive I played golf with each of them only once. I would give


anything to have one more round with them. That would certainly be a dream come true.


title, however, dramatically came down to his final putt. On the 18th hole, tied with James Myers for the tournament lead, Thompson had a 40-foot birdie putt with Myers three feet away for par. Having a good line, Thompson wanted to give it a chance to go in, but also didn’t want to ram it past the hole and possibly lose the tournament. “I thought I left it short, but then


the ball kept trickling and trickling, and boom, [it went in],” said Thompson. Thompson felt especially fortu- nate to win, considering his winning putt may have been for a tie if it weren’t for Myers’ honesty. On the 10th hole, after addressing his ball on the putting green, Myers’ ball slightly moved, so he called a one- stroke penalty on himself. “The integrity of the game is unbelievable,” said


Rob Thompson


Thompson. “His ball couldn’t have moved more than a fraction and he called a penalty on himself.”
