SAN FRANCISCO — A simple text message Wednesday all but had Marc Leishman in tears. The Australian had just defeated Justin Rose at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, and his wife, Audrey, sent word of congratulations.
For as routine as that might seem, Leishman looked at his phone in amazement.
“Every time I get a text off her … as close as we were to losing her, it still feels really cool that I can get text messages off her and just do that,” Leishman said after his 3-and-2 victory over Rose. “It’s just cool to have her around. I hope it stays that way forever.”
