Graham DeLaet met Graeme McDowell in an 18-hole match at the Canadian stunner Cabot Links on Tuesday with much more on the line than a typical exhibition. The spelling of their first names were on the line.
The homophone first names battled at the Canadian course, with Graeme McDowell winning after turning in a 5-under round to DeLaet's 2-under effort.
Unfortunately for DeLaet, that loss meant he would be (very temporarily) going by the spelling of the 2010 U.S. Open champion.
Our friend Bob Weeks from Score Golf in Canada Instagrammed a picture of the new playoff-beard-less DeLaet with a new name tag for everyone to see.
DeLaet may have come up short at the Nova Scotia links, but he outlasted McDowell by far in the FedEx Cup playoffs.
