Get ready to cast your vote for one of the final 10 golfers in the MetLife MatchUp, which will determine which player best navigated the challenges of the PGA TOUR to produce an unforgettable shot. Go to PGATOUR.COM/MetLife, Aug. 7-16, to pick your favorite. MetLife and the PGA TOUR launched the MetLife MatchUp earlier this season to recognize the pros who best navigated the TOUR’s most demanding holes and challenging situations. Already this season, at 10 select events broadcast by CBS, two players/shots were selected to go head-to-head in the weekly MetLife MatchUp, where fans cast votes for the shot they liked best. The finalists, the best of the best, will now be pitted against each other for you to once again cast your vote -- this time to determine the MetLife MatchUp season winner. The winner will be announced on CBS during the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST on Aug. 27. The 10 finalists are: Luke Donald (RBC Heritage): In the final round, the Englishman holed out from the greenside bunker from 75 feet to birdie the par-4 11th hole. Cameron Smith (Valero Texas Open): In the third round, Smith missed the fairway at the par-5 8th hole, then hit his second shot from the left rough back into the fairway. After landing his third in the bunker, he saved par with a solid bunker shot. Phil Mickelson (Wells Fargo Championship): In the third round, Mickelson's third shot landed in the bunker on the par-5 18th hole. He then used his considerable short-game skills to blast out to within 6 feet, then drained the putt for par. Jason Day (AT&T Byron Nelson): In the opening round, Day's tee shot at the par-4 11th hole came to rest on the cart path. Electing to hit from the concrete, Day knocked his approach to 12 feet, then sank his birdie putt. Kevin Kisner (DEAN & DELUCA Invitational): In the third round, Kisner punched out from the trees into the fairway on the par-5 first hole, hit his third shot into the rough, then chipped in from 33 feet for birdie. Daniel Berger (FedEx St. Jude Classic): In the final round, Berger left his 75-foot chip short of the green on the par-4 first hole before chipping in from 25 feet to save an unlikely par en route to the win. Martin Laird (Quicken Loans National): In the final round, Laird hit his tee shot into some deep grass at the par-4 14th hole, requiring him to scramble from a difficult position. Undaunted, he chipped in from 39 yards for birdie. Bubba Watson (The Greenbrier Classic): In the first round, Watson hit his tee shot in the woods on the par-4 13th hole, requiring a punch shot back into the fairway. He bent his third onto the green and finished it off with a 41-foot putt for par. Patrick Rodgers (John Deere Classic): In the second round, Rodgers hit his 190-yard tee shot into the greenside rough on the par-3 third hole but did more than just save par -- he scrambled to hole his 49-foot birdie chip. Kevin Chappell (RBC Canadian Open): In the final round, Chappell hit an incredible approach shot from a difficult position to give himself an 11-foot look at birdie on the par-4 10th hole.
