The Shots That Defined The PGA

These are the shots that shaped the outcome at Kiawah

Carl Pettersson

Carl Pettersson's birdie chip, first hole, second round

The underrated, overlooked Pettersson was a fixture on the leader board all week in large part thanks to his trusty long putter. But it was his chip out of Kiawah's many sandy areas that provided a needed spark on Friday. Starting out on the back nine on Friday, Pettersson was one over for his round when he missed the green on No. 1, his 10th hole of the day. But his chip found the bottom of the cup for birdie, helping Pettersson to survive a very difficult day with a two-over 74.
