Monday analysis: How you can go low like Ben Crane

When Ben Crane birdied 14 through 17 yesterday to get into a playoff with Webb Simpson, whom he beat on the second extra hole, he did something we all have the chance to do from time to time: Finish off a hot round.

Granted, you're not going to post a little 63 next weekend, like Crane did, but whatever your level, you have days when things are clicking, right? At some point you ask yourself that horrible question, Can I keep this going? That's usually when your round takes a turn the other way.

Butch Harmon gave us a memorable tip on finishing strong in a recent Golf Digest: "You've allowed yourself to get here, now allow yourself to finish."

Below are highlights of Crane's 63:
