Sean Crocker and caddy Steve Pettit enjoy the spoils of their victory on Sunday.;

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – If there weren’t many coronas in Dunvegan on Monday morning, you can thank Sean Crocker for that. He is the champion of this week’s Hero Open, held across the fairway at the Fairmont in St Andrews.

Corona is Crocker’s drink and Dunvegan, known locally as The Duny, is his drink of choice. As he appeared on Sunday, the chalkboard at the entrance was marked: “Congratulations Sean Crocker” in yellow chalk. “Hero Open Champion!” How did he get through that? It’s true, Crocker doesn’t pass the dunny. He always gets wet. At least that’s what he told me on Sunday night, a few hours after Corona No. 1 passed.

The 25-year-old DP World Tour star has had several good nights. Some were paid later. But there was plenty to like as the champions celebrated among the fans in the city. He was doing exactly what you were doing, right? None of us know exactly what it feels like to breathe what we ate on TV after completing the deal. But we all need it.

“It’s not easy to win a golf tournament,” he said, minutes after his final putt. “And Eddie [Pepperell] They didn’t make it easy for me either. Ho. I’m lost for words here.

Crocker has not celebrated victory for a long time, so his words can be understood as lacking. This is rarely said about the aspects of pro golf. Players like him always win in junior golf. Crocker won big in high school and won scholarships to universities, as he did in Southern California. But the higher you go, the less likely you are to win.

According to Wikipedia, the unofficial record of golfers outside the top 100 in the world rankings, Crocker won the 2016 Monroe Invitational in upstate New York. Then he added the 2017 winner of the amateur event in Italy. since then? nothing. As he said, winning golf tournaments is hard.

A handful of GD friends surrounded Crocker at Dunney, including his friend Steve Pettit and Ewen Ferguson, a Scotsman and DP World tour guide. Ferguson earned his first win in years at the Qatar Masters in March. It was his first win since his time at the University of Texas, against Scotty Scheffler, who, notably, had not won on tour before Friday — then again, and again, and again. These victories are not easy. That’s why we celebrate with Corona. Scheffler celebrates with his go-to place in Dallas, Burger House. He beat Crocker 1 up at the 2016 NCAA Championships.

Crocker was born in Zimbabwe and based in West Palm Beach, but spent most of his career touring Europe. We laughed when I pointed out that you can get the kid out of America but you can’t make him drink Guinness. “That’s all I drink, but the funny thing is everyone else is drinking it,” he said.

He started the evening on one of the stools in the bar but had enough time to move to a four-seater in the center of the pub. His Marlins hat was pulled tight, but with his blond hair flowing down the back, everyone knew where the winner was. Later that night I asked him what his next stop was. “Wells next week,” he said. The show goes on. But that week could be rough. Expectations are low.”

We will see about this.
