Ryan Palmer Birdies the 18th to Win Ginn.

What a difference a day makes. Gee, that would make a great song title. Resurgent Ryan Palmer reversed his 18th hole result from yesterday to separate himself from a bevy of golfers and win the Ginn sur Mer Classic. A pack of six golfers were at one time tied at -6 with two holes left. Palmer's -1, 71 was just enough to squeak by 3rd round leader Michael Letzig, George McNeill,

Legends Reno-Tahoe Open - Round Three
Vaughn Taylor, and Nicholas Thompson, all of whom finished at -6. At -5 was a second bevy of five players. To say anyone one of these eleven had a chance to win the damn thing in the last few holes would be an understatement.

Palmer began his week as a Monday qualifier and firmly planted in 143th position on the Tour money list. The pay check and the two year exemption for the win have turned his bus around. A throw- in trip to Maui for next year's start is just a bonus. Next week's Children's Miracle Network Classic at Walt Disney World Resort will be the final shot at finishing inside the top 125 and keeping your card for 2009. Wonder what has more pressure, Q school, that tournament, or playing a ten dollar Nassau with five bucks in your pocket? At the very least it'll be interesting.

Til' next,
