Instead of getting grumpy with himself, as he might have in the past, Ogilvy grinded out an improbable par with a long chip-in to win the hole. Later, both players pointed to that as the tipping point in Ogilvy’s 4-and-3 victory at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.
“I mean, a textbook match play hole, really,” Ogilvy said, laughing. He added, “Almost a comedy of errors match play hole that ended my way.”
That is Ogilvy, as self-deprecating as the desert vistas are wide. The sun set early on Casey’s hopes of notching his first PGA Tour win because Ogilvy, for all his humility, was prideful under pressure. He did not allow himself a bogey in the 36-hole final.
