Despite all that Golf Boys stuff and the fact that Hunter Mahan kind of reminds me of that jock in school that knew he was good but probably never finished an entire novel, I like him. Always have. He has swagger on the course, hits the ball incredibly well and has lived up to the hype, relatively speaking. It was a bummer when he flubbed that chip a year ago at the Ryder Cup because I was really hoping he'd be the hero.
And it might have taken a year, but Mahan was the hero on Saturday at the Presidents Cup.
First, his hole-out in the morning sessions with David Toms.
And finally, the best reaction to any putt I've seen in years. Man that was awesome.

This time Hunter Mahan heard a fan making noise during his swing at the Presidents Cup today. He wasn't to happy about it and said "Come on really, What the ****, that's uncalled...
Rough day Friday for Hunter Mahan at the Presidents Cup. One day after he and David Toms had no trouble hammering Y.E. Yang and K.T. Kim 6 & 5, Mahan and Toms struggled to keep pace with Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel. Their woes would culminate as Mahan attempted an approach shot only to be distracted by some mouthy Aussies in an adjacent hospitality tent. Nice of Mahan...
Saturday was supposed to be the day for the Internationals. Down 7-5 to the Americans, it was shaping up to be a dirty, wet, muddy day of golf, perfect for the non-American player. Problem was, none of the United States players would let up.
Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson, the surprise of this Presidents Cup, kept their impressive run going, beating a veteran group of Robert Allenby...
