Ben Crane Proves Personable Is Better
By Kickntrue on 11/1/10
I think the message we can take away from Ben Crane's win in Malaysia over the weekend is that putting yourself on the internet doing stupid things is good for you. I mean... 2 weeks ago- Crane is pretty much known only for his dreadful slow play. Then- he puts a ridiculous video of himself online- and BAM- $1,000,000 richer.
Ben Crane posted a final round of 2-under-par 69 and won the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic Malaysia by a stroke over Brian Davis.

Crane was 2-under-par on his opening nine, but on the back nine he gave up the lead to Martin Laird after he posted three consecutive bogeys starting at the 12th hole. He was able to retake the lead after an eagle at the par-4 16th hole, however Brian Davis closed his round with birdie-eagle-birdie finish to tie Crane for the lead. Crane was still tied for the lead going into the final hole, but he was able to birdie the hole for the championship. The victory is the second this season for Crane and it is his first career title on the Asian Tour.
The only shame is that Crane was wasting his time in Malaysia when he should have been playing against Lorena for much more money over in China. Beat 39 other men- win $1M. Beat 1 retired woman- win $1.28M. Sure, $.28M looks small when you write it like that- but I wouldn't hate making an additional $280,000 a weekend. Just saying...

Love it! I don't watch TV very often so I don't know about who is who in golf but I do enjoy this video and bubba watson. I think I would root for them if I get the chance to watch some golf.

Do you think he could get his pace of play in the now, now?

A Chevy Chase for our times-

Ty Webb: Good. Then what's your problem?
