Was it even fair from the get-go?

Patty Ice and Xander team up to go wire-to-wire to win the Zurich Classic.

Sure, there were other premier pairings who teed it up last week: Morikawa/Hovland, Scheffler/Palmer, and Skinns/Tarren (who?).

None could keep up with the US best pals duo, who blistered the field, shooting tourney-record best -29 over four days (four-ball format two days, alternate shot two days).

These guys play boring golf. And boring golf wins this tournament every year. The main difference in ’22 vs previous years was the team that won consisted of PGA TOUR superstars.

We hope to see this winning pairing back in ’23, along with Seiffert/Lebioda (huh?).
