A champion rising to the moment again starts this week’s What It Means:
1) Nick Watney’s win yesterday at the AT&T National is another win in a top-flight event to add to his resume. It’s his second of the year — he won at Doral earlier this year — and now is the leader on the money list.
His new putter came in handy, sinking clutch par putts on the front nine to keep his momentum going and ultimately leading him to victory. Watney’s talent has been known for a long time, and he’s had a couple close calls at majors in recent years. If he can keep the flatstick going, watch out at the British or PGA. He really could win.
