Sometimes It's Good To Be Badds

Aaron Baddeley hung on to win the Verizon Heritage by one shot over Jim Furyk.

The difference was his decision to go for the green at the par 5, 15th. A bold move for a guy still trying to win his first PGA tournament. With the tournament hanging in the balance, he was faced with a dilema. In the fairway on the 15th, he was 220 yds from the green but his direct line of flight was blocked by a stand of trees. He had three options: hook the ball around the trees, go over them, or lay up.

He made the kind of decision you have to make if you want to break through and win, he took a 6 iron (from 220 mind you) and went over the trees. LAnded the ball on the back of the green and two putted for birdie.

With that confidence booster I think we'll be seeing a lot more of the Badd Man.
