It’s the final round of the 2021 Open Championship and, indeed, this year’s major season. The pressure is high, and when the final group tees off at Royal St. George’s, players will be judging every minute detail of the course to an exacting degree.

And then there’s Kevin Kisner, who outside of playing for a paycheck, spent the day enjoying a casual, brisk walk around the property.

Coming into Sunday seven over and teeing-off as a single in the first group of the day, he sent his first shot down the fairway at 8 a.m. local time (3 a.m. ET) and knocked in his final putt just two-and-a-half hours later, at about 10:30 a.m. local time.

Needless to say, Golf Twitter roared with approval at his rapid pace of play.
