Well I suppose it wasn't exactly what we thought we might get (where art thou, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson?) but we still got a pretty good story on Sunday at Quail Hollow.
Holmes' surgery in 2011 came at the hands of something called Chiari malformation which causes "structural defects in the cerebellum" and affects balance.
Ironically, Holmes was as steady as anyone atop the leaderboard on Sunday with four birdies to three bogeys for a final-round 71 and an easier-than-it-seems one-stroke win over Jim Furyk.
"It's been a long journey for me," Holmes told CBS Sports' David Feherty after his final round. "I've had some ups and downs. It's a great feeling to be out here and get one done. I'm happy with the way the year is going so far."
He should be.
The big hitter has five other top 25s, a top 10, and just one missed cut on the year. With his payout in Charlotte his season earnings will swell to nearly $2 million.
