Around the wider world of golf: Cristie Kerr set a new tournament record with her win at the LOTTE Championship on the LPGA; Stephen Ames got his first Champions Tour win at the Mitsubishi Electric Classic; Edoardo Molinari won the Trophee Hassan II in a playoff on the ET; Klára Spilková became the first Czech player to win a Ladies European Tour event at the Lalla Meryem Cup; and Wen-Chong Liang won the Token Homemate Cup on the Japan Golf Tour.
I'm calling it Bryan's Law: Take the trick-shot artists seriously.
I'll admit... the Easter egg outfit might cause you to think twice about that. (Come to think of it, I think I've seen a similar outfit during other final rounds Wesley's played. Or perhaps I was just blinded by the sheer flamboyance of it all.) But no matter how he dressed, Wesley didn't crack under the pressure as he came down the stretch. His 67 may not have been the lowest score of the day -- that goes to Matt Kuchar, who was too far back for his 64 to affect the outcome -- but it was the next lowest.
Most importantly, it was enough.
So Wesley took home an Easter basket full of goodies from Hilton Head, which included an invite to the 2018 Masters and a very large winner's check. He also gained the title of "First South Carolinian to win the RBC Heritage in its 49-Year History," which is a very long and impressive title, and likely one he will take great pride in.
Just as he did on the Web.com Tour -- getting the Battlefield Promotion in his first year on that tour -- he picks up his first PGA Tour win in his rookie year there. I can assure you that Bryan's Law is taken very seriously among his peers!
And it's also taken very seriously here at RuthlessGolf.com, where we don't give out Limerick Summaries just because a player has a colorful personality... or a matching wardrobe. Better get used to the bright colors, folks -- this kid may be around for a while:

He's an Easter surprise!—
