Job with Perks

“A champion no one knew. A finish no one can forget.” In New Zealand’s greatest golfing moment since Bob Charles won the British Open in 1963 Craig Perks shot a stunning final round to clinch the Players’ championship – the tournament that is regarded as golfing’s fifth major. Perks’s final stroke, a chip-in from thick rough behind the 18th green, brought him a theatrical victory, the richest payoff on the PGA Tour and an unlikely trip to the Masters. “A New Zealander who is not even famous in his own lounge” becomes, “the biggest outsider to win golfing’s richest tournament”.
