Things started to get interesting after he had just taken a two-hole lead through the first four holes. "I even thought to myself 'man, it would be great if this went in.' I just hit it perfectly and it dropped right in". To be the one to make the putt, that's going to be really memorable for me. I think we match up pretty good with them and we're going to go out and give them all they can handle. "We picked a line, we felt confident, and we rolled it in, and I knew that was big, and kind of let my emotions out". He capped his 8&7 victory with a putt on the par-three 11th hole. "I got to see a couple of the other guys finish up". After reaching the turn trailing, 1-down, Ventura turned it on by taking the next four holes to inflate his lead to 3-up.
