A film session beckoned Bart Houston, but he needed to make a quick phone call first.Bart Houston dialed his parents back in his hometown of Dublin, California, to tell them the news: In nine days, he would start as quarterback for the University of Wisconsin football team against Louisiana State University at Lambeau Field.His mother, Inge Houston, shrieked with excitement. His father, Guy Houston, a local politician, reacted more diplomatically, along the lines of, “you have this opportunity, now go out there and do it.”Football: Breakdown of Badgers’ upset over LSUThe Wisconsin Badgers played a spoiler game against fifth ranked Louisiana State University with a 16-14 upset victory in college Read…The fifth-year senior made his first start at quarterback Saturday since he led his team to a state championship his senior year of high school, where he was ranked a four-star recruit. It appeared then that Houston would have a smooth transition to the college game and would make an impact for the Badgers early in his career. The opportunity never arrived.When Gary Andersen took over the program for two years, he relegated Bart Houston to backup punter, in charge of kicking the ball rugby-style.“You always think you can do it earlier, but just wasn’t in the stars,” Bart Houston said. “I’m glad it happened.”None of that mattered Saturday, though. Bart Houston ran onto the field like Odysseus returning to Ithaca — he had finally made it home. Bart Houston is named after Packers legendary gunslinger of the same name (you’ve heard this already), so call it a homecoming for him.Football: Lambeau Leaps and revelry just minutes after ugly momentThe Lambeau Leaps into the stands afterward said it all for Wisconsin football. What the team accomplished Saturday was nothing short Read…“It makes it very special,” Bart Houston said of his first start coming at Lambeau. “It’s a great opportunity to play in front of our fans for this team and show what I can do.”Houston was shaky at times, throwing two brutal interceptions, but he maintained poise and led the Badgers to a 16-14 win against No. 5 LSU. He completed 19 of his 31 passing attempts for 205 yards.Just like his first four years in Madison, it wasn’t easy securing the starting role. He and redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook engaged in a tight quarterback battle, with no one truly emerging until Bart Houston over the final week or so of fall camp. UW head coach Paul Chryst had to make a difficult decision.Initially, it appeared Chryst would have no choice but to press Hornibrook into action. He was the better quarterback when camp first opened, and Bart Houston’s throws were often erratic and inconsistent.“The first week I was pressing,” Bart Houston said. “I was trying to get there too fast, but it’s a process … I just took a step back and played my game. I didn’t overdo it and try to make too many plays. I just let it happen.”His coach saw the same progress. Bart Houston’s performance at Illinois last season (22 of 33, two touchdowns and two interceptions) also allowed Chryst to feel comfortable putting Bart Houston under center for Week One.In photos: UW fans’ fairytale comes true with Badger win at LambeauThe football game this Saturday couldn’t have been any more magical for Wisconsinites as their two pride and joys were Read…At the same time, Chryst said, he’s improved since then.“I think he definitely has a better grasp of what we’re trying to do,” Chryst said regarding Houston’s performance against Illinois. “I think he also, through the number of reps he’s had, understands his strengths and weaknesses. I think both of them came out in that game. I think he did that early in camp. He was pressing, and that was good for him to have to go through and deal with it. I think he does have more knowledge of what we’re trying to do, and I think he’s got more knowledge of himself.”On the other side of the competition is a young, disappointed quarterback in Hornibrook, who by no means played himself out of the job. It was a tough pill for Hornibrook to swallow, but he praised Bart Houston’s perseverance in reaching the starting role after years of waiting on the sideline.“Obviously, for the fans and everybody, to see a kid that went through everything [Bart Houston] did and stick with it through different coaching changes, it’s good for a kid like that to get his chance,” Hornibrook said.Football: Chryst doesn’t want Badgers to rest on upset winAfter one of the biggest wins in program history against a Louisiana State University team many experts picked to make Read…Bart Houston also said the competition was beneficial for him but that it didn’t matter anymore. He has a job to do now.“What we’re trying to do is get this team and get this offense to win games for us,” Bart Houston said. “It’s over.”
Yet this victory, the first in a major with a margin of five or more strokes since Rory McIlroy’s U.S. Open triumph at Congressional in 2011, was just reward for four days of sublime golf played with the backing of a vociferous crowd desperate for an Irish winner on Irish soil.It marks a crowning moment in Lowry’s career three years on from him letting a four-shot lead slip in the final round of the U.S. Open at Oakmont.No luck needed for the Irishman. @ShaneLowryGolf is the Champion Golfer of the Year with a SIX-shot victory.#LiveUnderPar pic.twitter.com/2As4ywtP3q— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) July 21, 2019His success owed much to a fantastic eight-under 63 on Saturday when the glorious conditions were in stark contrast to the heavy downpours and high winds that greeted the leaders the following day.The landscape of the leaderboard could have been markedly different after the first hole the final pairing played in the fourth round, when Lowry followed a nervy tee shot that landed in the left rough with an approach into the greenside bunker, while Fleetwood put his approach to within 10 feet.Lowry limited the damage, though, recovering to make bogey as his nearest rival missed a presentable birdie chance.An increasingly assured Lowry duly extended his lead with a run of three birdies in four holes to reach 18 under through seven and, even when the weather worsened to make scoring difficult, his lead never really came under threat thereafter.Three dropped shots between the eighth and 11th did little damage, with Fleetwood also dropping shots in the damp conditions.A birdie at 12 brought Fleetwood within four, but a double-bogey six at 14 killed any hope of a comeback and another birdie for Lowry at 15 brought huge cheers. Tommy Fleetwood, who started four back on Sunday, could not get going with the putter despite some handy looks for birdie early in his round and the Englishman struggled to a 74 that left him six behind the champion.Lowry had reached a low point 12 months ago at the same tournament at Carnoustie, where he missed the cut — for the fourth Open in succession — and slipped to 92nd in the world rankings.
