PLAYER THE WHO’S DA MAHAN? INTHE last few years, Hunter Myles Mahan has come a long way. And the 29-year-old Texas resident would be the first to admit there’s still a way to go. But at the moment his form is great. Last week it was almost brilliant. Mahan ended just one shot away from turning his solid year into a life-changing one when he lost the TOUR Championship—and $10 million FedEx Cup title—to Bill Haas in a playoff at East Lake Country Club. But it wasn’t a big deal for the smiling American, who when commiserated for his loss in a post-match interview with NBC’s Roger Maltbie replied: “Condolences? I didn’t die, did I? Geez.” That’s the perspective one usually gains after a huge disappointment. And for Mahan that disappointment came at the 2010 Ryder Cup in Wales. Going head-to-head with Europe’s Graeme McDowell in the last group on Sunday, Mahan’s much-publicised flubbed chip handed the Ryder Cup to the Europeans. Breaking down in the press conference that followed showed the burden Mahan was shouldering after the loss. A duff at Celtic Manor in 2010 that cost the USA the Ryder Cup threatened to shake-up talented American Hunter Mahan’s mindset on the PGA Tour. Well nobody told the man himself. Putting the disappointment behind him in 2011, he’s enjoyed his most consistent year on Tour. Hunter’s one Cool Cat.
