“When you’re sitting at your desk job, could you have imagined all this kind of happening?”

Not a question you hear often in pro golf, let alone pro sports, is it? But there Ben Griffin was 18 months ago, behind a desk, as a loan officer for a mortgage group. And there he’ll be Sunday, in the final pairing during the Bermuda Championship’s final round. 

His answer may be what you expect, though it’s nonetheless stirring.   

“It’s hard to imagine, that’s for sure,” Griffin said. “I mean, it was crazy. I didn’t even think about like return to golf. It wasn’t — without the financial help, I wouldn’t be playing golf. It’s so — looking back on it, I mean, it was such a huge refresher for me from a mental standpoint as I touched base about the burnout a little bit and then relieving some of that financial burden has been just huge. It’s nuts definitely to be sitting here talking to you guys, getting ready to win a PGA Tour event tomorrow. I’m just super blessed to play golf. I’ve got that attitude where I’ve got nothing to lose and I’m going to go out there firing.”

Griffin, along with Seamus Power, will tee off at 12:20 p.m. ET. They are at 18-under, two clear of Kevin Yu and Aaron Baddeley, who will tee off 10 minutes earlier.  

TV coverage of the final round will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Golf Channel.
