HENDERSON, Nev. – Calvin Heimburg needed a friend.
The stoic slinger was unshakable as he took the Las Vegas Challenge’s first three rounds by storm, rarely showing any emotion as he staked a six-shot lead into Sunday’s final at Wildhorse Golf Club’s Innova course. But the last 18 of a PDGA National Tour event is a whole different animal, and while Heimburg didn’t show any distress on his face, he did with his game.
