Henley surfs to first PGA win

Former Bulldog Russell Henley is now a hot name in golf. Winning your rookie debut in the PGA will do that. Winning it with a -24 under 256 to break the Sony Open record will do that as well. Now Henley will ride his 2012 and early 2013 success to his first Masters. That's a dream come true for most golfers. But especially a guy from Macon.

Back to Honolulu, the Sony Open leaderboard was littered with former Dawgs as Chris Kirk finished tied for 5th and Harris English finished tied for 9th. But it was Henley's day as he wowed viewers, patrons and commentators alike. Every time Tim Clark birdied to pull within striking distance, Henley drained another putt after making another green in regulation. He birdied the last five holes.

Great golf, by a damn good Dawg!
