00:00
So, Wesley Bryan won his first PGA Tour title
00:03
over the weekend at the RBC Heritage.
00:05
I don't know if you guys know this,
00:06
but he and his brother George used to be trick shot artists.
00:09
Yep, they were called the Bryan brothers,
00:12
and, okay, so if you've watched one minute
00:14
of one tournament Wesley's played in this year,
00:17
you know the story already.
00:19
Still, it's pretty remarkable how far
00:21
Wesley has come in a year and a half.
00:23
Morphing from YouTube curiosity
00:25
into PGA tour star after a year
00:27
of dominating on the Web.com Tour.
00:29
And, after winning at Hilton Head,
00:30
the world also found out he's capable
00:32
of giving a pretty candid interview as well.
00:35
In his trip to the CBS tower, Wesley admitted
00:38
that nerves down the stretch caused him
00:40
to throw up a little in his mouth on the 17th tee.
00:44
Wow.
00:45
I think Jim Nance threw up a little
00:46
as well upon hearing that.
00:48
Check out his full cringe.
00:50
But Bryan's stomach obviously
00:52
settled down a few hours later.
00:53
He had a big celebration dinner at Taco Bell.
00:58
Psst, Wes, being a PGA Tour star
01:01
pays just a little better than being a trick shot artist.
01:05
So, you know, go ahead and treat yourself.
