Just my observations.
Dan Smith has had the "eye of the tiger" focus all year coming out of the loser's bracket. They just didn't have the focus that MPT had in those two games but then it was their 3rd game in a row.
This shows why we play the games. The #1 seed has not won the Major in many years after a decade of the #1 seed dominating. Also a non major team made the finals like Fence Brokers, T&R Stucco, and Taylormade did in the past.
We never did get to see the heavyweight battle between Dan Smith and Resmondo but then they actually didn't play that much all year.
