Ben Crane, three time winner on the PGA Tour, who finished 14th (Earning $104,400) at the Farmers Insurance Open last weekend, gives viewers a bit of insight on his pre-round routine.
It may seem unorthodox, but using his methods, he was able to net six professional wins, the most recent PGA Tour win was the 2010 Farmers Insurance Open.
Funny little tidbit on Mr. Ben Crane..
According to Wikipedia, he does not like to know with whom he will be paired, saying, “I looked up to a lot of these guys who I’m now playing with. So, I didn’t want to have to go to sleep thinking about it.”
Crane is also considered one of the slowest players in the tour. On at least two occasions his extremely slow progress through a course has become a media issue, including one in which a fellow tour player Rory Sabbatini played out of turn and then was cited for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Crane missed the majority of the 2007 season due to back problems, and played on the PGA Tour in 2008 on a major medical extension. He finished 64th on the money list to retain his card for 2009.
You’ve gotta love a golfer with a sense of humor who isn’t so full of himself he needs a cup to catch the overflow! 🙂
