The author writes, "In the process, he gave up the $1.008 million first
prize."I understand what the writer was trying to convey, but
that statement insinuates that Mahan had already won the prize money and gave it
up.He withdrew from the tournament before he even started his third
round. There's no telling how he would have played the final two rounds. He
didn't give up 1$.008 million. He gave up the chance to win $1.008
million.I congratulate Mahan for leaving the tournament to be with
his wife —— I would have done the same thing. But people are making
too big of a deal about the money. For professional golfers, it's not about
the money — it's about winning. I'm sure he thinks of this as
giving up a chance to win, rather than giving up the chance to collect a lot of
cash.Mr. Toone should have been more careful with how he constructed
@crbullseyeTrue, but his -13 after 2 rounds was what the people tied for
2nd after 4 rounds finished with so it's a pretty safe bet he'd have
finished at least in 2nd place (the winner had -16) and everyone in the top 10
made at least 100k.
Since Mr Mahan hadn't won the tournament, he didn't give up anything!
Classy move by a classy guy.
