The L. A. Open @ Riviera is in the books! And Justin “Who Are You” Hicks Wins it at -17. I am still dumbfounded that I’ve never heard of this even though I live in Michigan. Where is the love Sportscasters in Michigan? For crying out loud, he just Won the Los Angeles Open LOL! And he did it in commanding fashion by 4 shots over Paul Casey at -13!
Both Hicks & Casey factored in on the Round Highlights on the day! Justin Hicks birdied 4 straight to get it to -19 after 11 holes & Paul Casey also birdied 4 straight to get it to -13 after 12 holes. Hicks played the last 7 holes at +2 and that was his worst stretch in the entire tourney! But with a 6 shot lead at the time, he had a “margin of error” cushion to play with!
