A Coronation - Part 1

Kyle Stanley's run around Torrey Pines in this year's Farmers Insurance Open is most definitely a coronation - a year after Kyle pocketed more than $1.5 million in his rookie season the sophomore is avoiding the second year slump and staking his claim as one of the best young players in the game.

Stanley was victimized by Steve Striker in last year's John Deere, shooting twenty-one under in the runner up finish, but he finished strong during the Fed-Ex cup run.  He also finished T10 in the Justin Timberlake event during the fall finish before taking a well deserved break a couple of events later.

With a year under his belt, the Clemson grad is staking his claim as one of the top up-and-coming American players in a rapidly growing pool of talent.  The 2012 PGA Tour season is looking to be one of the more exciting in recent years as there are even more players capable of taking down a win week after week.  With Tiger finishing strong albeit not being able to close out the win in Abu Dhabi next week's event at Pebble is even more compelling.  The month and a half long run up to Augusta has become even more compelling.  Buckle-up, folks!
