This was sweet. In more ways than one. 

On the first day of the WGC-Match Play, and down four after 13 holes in his match against Denny McCarthy, Keegan Bradley went on a tear. He won 14. He won 15, He won 16. He won 18. He halved the match. 

The difference?

“Man, it was looking pretty bleak there for a while, but I just put my head down,” Bradley said. “My boy gave me Starburst walking down 10, and I put it in my back pocket for good luck, and gave me some good luck.”

So let’s have some fun. As we break down the WGC-Match Play $20 million purse, let’s see just how many Starbursts you can buy with the $3.5 million given to the winner. Here we go:
