In the heat and humidity of summer, 'tis the season to take time off and gain some perspective on the trials and tribulations of work, which quite often leads to the conclusion that things aren’t bad at all.

Brantford’s David Hearn already knows that, despite missing a makeable putt on the fourth playoff hole of the John Deere Classic on Sunday that would have clinched his first PGA Tour win and a trip to this week’s British Open.

Instead, it’s 19-year-old Jordan Spieth enjoying the spoils of victory after parring the fifth extra hole at the John Deere and prevail over Hearn and 2007 Masters champ Zach Johnson.

“I added it up,” said Hearn.
