Of course you take the bet, this thing is over.

Even if that hundo won’t cover your lost bets from before the tournament started, let alone your trip to the merchandise tent, you feel pretty good about getting some money back today.

You’re starting to view this round as not just a special opportunity to watch the best day of golf all year in-person, but a scouting mission. You followed this group, you watched Koepka look unbeatable and now you’re going to profit from that observation.

It would be nothing new for you to spend an entire Sunday afternoon sweating an outright bet, only to watch your guy finish in second place, but you feel about as confident as Koepka looks right now.

Playing with 13 clubs, he’s been ruthlessly efficient. You keep striking up conversations with random strangers in the gallery and everyone comes to the same conclusion: Koepka is just a completely different player at the major championships.

By the time he reaches the 18th hole, Koepka owns a three-stroke lead. He settles for par on the last, then never gets seriously challenged by the last few groups on the course, eventually winning by two strokes.

You wander around Augusta National for a little while, content with your decision to follow this pairing and even more content with your decision to back Brooks at the turn.

As you look around the still-large mass of people lingering across the premises, there’s one guy you don’t see.

Conveniently enough, that high school buddy of yours didn’t stick around to pay off the bet.
