For the second year in a row, Will and Annika attended the major winners and their families event; the 12-year-old said he liked the tournament than the desert. But everything was coming to an end. And his head was bowed. Annika lifted his hand to cheer from the crowd, so obviously something was going on.

But did you experience greater emotion after Will’s subsequent shot? That was also excellent. Something was about to happen, you knew. The kid seems to have a talent for it. Rising from the right greenside bunker, the lefty lofted one up and finished about a foot away, falling it just short of the cup. Mom couldn’t compete with it. However, this place held more. With that, Will left the bunker. He removed his blue fedora. He gave it a wave. Father Mike McGee, the team’s caddy, smiled. Mom grinned. His father gave him a hug. Mom gave him a hug. I wanted to hug him, too.

But were you more struck by Will’s subsequent birdie putt? That was excellent as well. You were aware of the outcome. He set down his ball. He grasped his marker. The tears started to fall. However, he dismissed them with his right hand, pulled on the back of his cap, and threw the ball for a four. His father gave him a hug. He shook hands with the caddies and other players. He gave his mother a hug. He started crying once again. Oh my.

Or did the NBC live interview including Will and Annika suffice? following only one query posed by presenter Cara Banks? Maybe you melted when they turned on the lights for the cameras.

I have never met someone who more fully embodies the spirit of this championship than you, Will. In just your second year, you’ve already made several incredible putts and waved to the audience. Just give you a brief description of this week’s experience.

“It’s the best week of my year,” he said, managing to do so through some red eyes.

“Being able to do it with her is so much fun.

“Thank you for everything, PNC.”

Oh, dude.

Mom came next.

“Tears are visible in your eyes. I know it was a heartfelt walk down 18. Annika, did it make you feel anything?

Yes, it is. It’s really enjoyable. Together, we have a great time. He was clearly trying to do a little better today, but I think we were simply having fun strolling, and I was going very fast on eighteen. “Move slowly, Mommy, I want to savor this moment,” he remarked. That seems to be what we did for the most of the week.

These last few sentences popped.

“Will, are those tears of happiness?”

Yes, indeed. Indeed.

Excellent, excellent. therefore you’ll like what happened next. Let’s just say that was the cutest gesture they made in an entire week.

Before the round, Justin Thomas approached Will at the range. Thomas felt the child needed assistance.

He then helped him stuff golf balls into his pockets.

Navigate down to the 52-second mark:

Laugh. Weep. Both laugh and weep. Why not?

However, this discussion between Will and the reporters will mark our conclusion. It’s one more excellent one.

“Aside from your mother, who is your favorite professional this week?”

“This week, Tiger treated me pretty well. He is consistently very kind. However, he was so kind this week, so I wasn’t expecting that.”
