OPENING SHOT

An interesting note about Sunday's tape-delayed final round of the RBC Heritage, per Sports Business Journal.

"The net drew a 2.0 overnight rating for the final round, which saw Sotashi Kodaira beat Si-Woo Kim in a three-hole playoff for his first PGA Tour win. Yesterday's rating is up 33% from a 1.5 last year, when Wesley Bryan won the event on Easter Sunday." 

What could account for this? The Japanese audience? Fewer viewers tuning in on Easter Sunday? And it's not like former trick shot artist Wesley Bryan winning was a weak narrative!
