At the age of 47, Stewart Cink wins the RBC Heritage.
What made this win even more special was that he had his son, Reagan, on the bag.
Reagan wanted to spend some with his dad on Tour and thought what better way to do that so he decided to caddy for him. He had a job lined up with Delta Airlines but delayed it for a year and what a year it has been.
At the first event he caddied, the Safeway Open, Cink won and now the RBC Heritage.
Cink who opened the tournament with a pair of 63’s smashed the field and opened up a controlling lead. He closed with a 69 on Saturday and 70 on Sunday to walk away with a 4 shot lead.
After the round, Cink reflected on a special week. When asked what was the stand out of his eighth win?
“The fact that it happened at my age,” he said.
“I was able to really kind of change my game into a little bit more of a power game,” he said.
“He and I have always just been on the same wavelength,” Cink said of his son. “We're kind of from the same DNA, and I mean literally like we are the same person. We think about things – we think about jokes, we notice the same funny stuff, we just pick up on the same kind of little details about things in our immediate surroundings.”
“I did the job that I needed to do today to come away with a little bit of a cushion on the last few holes, which is such a pleasure to experience,” he said after the round. “It doesn’t happen to many people that many times in their career, but to walk down that fairway with a big lead and see that ball come up on dry land here on the 18th fringe with Reagan on the bag, and I knew [his other son] Connor and [his wife] Lisa were out there — it’s almost beyond words.”
