David Lynn Dreamt of the Masters

David Lynn Dreamt of the Masters

Finishing a runner up is not bad for David Lynn who has never competed in a major tournament in the United States until just recently and has had one Open Championship in the history of his professional golf career.

Yet with this record, Lynn stood in second place to Rory McIlroy at the USPGA Championship. The win gave him earnings of more than £557,000 which is a triple amount of the biggest he ever had in 16 years of playing golf professionally. He also got a chance to compete in Augusta before going back to PGA next year. He now ranks 13th from being in the 28th place in the Ryder Cup standings. The experience could be an overwhelming one for Lynn even though he finished eight strokes behind McIlroy. Lynn gave birdie shots at the 16th and 17th holes which made him one stroke ahead of competitors Ian Poulter and Justin Rose, as well as Keegan Bradley and Carl Pettersson.

He shared, “The Masters is just a dream come true, obviously – amazing.” His only previous win was at the 2004 Dutch Open. “Seeing Augusta as many times as I have, it’s like I know the place and I’ve never even been there. So actually to go and get to experience it is going to be something I’m really going to look forward to,” Lynn added.
