Fred Funk is anything but over the hill, a fact he demonstrated Sunday by winning on the PGA TOUR less than a month after picking up his second Champions Tour victory. In a popular spring break locale, the 50-year-old Funk felt right at home and beat Jose Coceres on the second playoff hole at the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun.
"I love hearing guys, especially guys closer to my age, that believe they can't compete out here anymore. Then I don't have to worry about them every week," said Funk. "Anybody that's negative and anybody that's questioning my ability and they are questioning their own abilities out here the way they can compete, that just gives me more motivation than anything."
Golf is the one sport you can play at the highest level for many many years. I think Funk has some good years left in him yet.
