The PGA Tour veteran has enjoyed a renaissance with two victories coming at the age of 47, the latest being his triumph at Harbour Town Golf Links (RBC Heritage) in April. It was the Georgia Tech alum's third triumph on the venerable Hilton Head, S.C., layout. Last fall, Cink won for the first time in 11 years at the Safeway Open, edging Harry Higgs by two strokes. Both wins came with son, Reagan, on his bag. Cink broke the hearts of many when he defeated sentimental favorite Tom Watson in a three-hole playoff at the 2009 Open Championship at Turnberry. It was his first major championship. Cink had his own heartbreak in the 2001 U.S. Open at Southern Hills Country Club when he missed a short putt on the 72nd hole. He didn't know it at the time, but it wold have earned him a spot in Monday's 18-hole playoff with Mark Brooks and eventual champion Retief Goosen. Goosen missed a short par putt on No. 18 to win the title in regulation. This will be Cink's 21st U.S. Open start and first since 2017 at Erin Hills.
