Harrison Frazar Wins FedEx St. Jude Classic
By mustang6560 on 6/13/11
For the second consecutive year, Robert Karlsson lost in a playoff at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee.

Karlsson lead after the second and third rounds but couldn't hold off a surging Harrison Frazar. In his 355th start, Frazar won his first career PGA Tour title on the third sudden-death playoff hole, a title he was not expecting.
"It was a whirlwind there. This was the first time," Frazar said. "I don't know if I'm supposed to keep the seersucker jacket. I don't know if I'm supposed to carry the trophy. You don't know who you're supposed to talk to. I felt bad. I didn't thank the sponsors. I didn't thank FedEx. I didn't thank the volunteers. I was not quite sure really what was happening right then.

"The only tournament that I won in q-school, you walked in, signed your card in the scoring trailer, and they gave you a pat on the back, 'Good job.' You walked out the door. There was nobody there."
Before his victory yesterday, Frazar was set to give up playing golf. Being away from his family in Texas and having to play through injuries was starting to get to him (and I'm sure not winning didn't help either). But, with a PGA Tour win under his belt now, Frazar qualified for the Hydunai Tournament of Champions in January and The Masters in April, a first for him.

I feel bad for Karlsson - he's the biggest loser from the weekend. The Swede has yet to win on the PGA Tour after coming up short in consecutive years at TPC Southwind. But you know what they say, third time's a charm.
