Former UNLV Rebel golfer Harry Hall was on top of the leaderboard throughout the Charles Schwab Challenge, but a water ball on 18 cost him a chance at victory. After the round, Hall, a rookie, said he was a bit surprised how soon he was in contention to win a PGA Tour event.
He spoke after the final round with CBS and prior to the fourth round, he admitted he would have to batter nerves en route to seeking his first PGA Tour win.
“Thank you to everyone for all the support and to the fans who rooted for me to win this week out on the course,” Hall wrote on Instagram. “Very grateful for you all and hopefully I can play in front of you for many years to come! Definitely disappointed. Still fresh in my thoughts. I know I lost this tournament. I’ll figure out why. I’ll come back better. Still love this game, and I’d say this week was a step up in my career. First time I was in contention on the PGA Tour was fun!”

“I could tell when I started today my heart was pacing a lot more than it normally does,” Hall said after round three. “Yeah, just to breathe and maybe slow myself down a little bit at the start tomorrow.”
