Congratulations, Richy Werensky

Congratulations to Richy Werensky, the winner of Golf Channel's "Big Break, The Palm Beaches, Florida".

The 23 year old Georgia Tech grad secured his victory with a 2 and 1 defeat of runner-up Justin Martinson.  About halfway through the season, it became apparent that Werensky, Martinson, and third place finisher Robert Rohanna of Waynesburg, PA were the best golfers on the show.  This made Werensky's win a well deserved one.

For his Big Break, Werensky will get an exemption into the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship which will be played in Alabama on July 16-19.  This is an event which will run concurrent with the British Open Championship, so, obviously, all of the very best players on the PGA Tour will not be playing in the Barbasol event, which means that Richy could have the opportunity to fare well, certainly better than past Big Break winners have done in the events in which they have played.  The Grandstander shall be monitoring the event come July and will provide an update on how he fares.
