What's it like to make a hole-in-one against Tiger Woods? Scott Brown shares

EDISON, N.J. -- Last week's Wyndham Championship will be remembered by most for Tiger Woods -- at least, for three days -- turning back the clock and Davis Love III turning it back even farther. But Scott Brown left Greensboro with some pretty special memories of his own.

Paired with Woods in the penultimate group on Sunday, Brown more than held his own, shooting a 68 to finish T-3 and top Tiger head-to-head by two shots.

"That's the stuff you dream of as a kid, playing with him in contention on Sunday," Brown said. "I was more amped about it than anything. It was a great atmosphere. Very major-like."

Brown's closing bogey left him two shots behind Love, but he was happy to post his best finish of the year -- especially considering the circumstances.

"This should be huge fore me," said Brown, who will begin his third FedEx Cup Playoffs at the Barclays on Thursday in 71st place following his strong performance at the Wyndham. "There's not a lot more pressure that you can play under than that group right there."

And it was Brown -- not the game's biggest star -- who provided the day's biggest highlight, a hole-in-one on Sedgefield's 174-yard par-3 third.

"That's my favorite one ever," Brown said of the ace with a smile. "I made a couple last year on tour, one at Colonial and one in Boston, but I told my caddie when we made that one, I said, 'that one will top the rest of them.' It was so loud."

And what's it like to get some love from the man who has created as many Sunday highlights as anyone in golf history?

"He was very complementary all day. I mean, he was awesome to play with," Brown said of Woods. "He was just as motivating as anybody would be in that situation, which was great."
