“It’s taking some time to sink in” Cam told WJR’s Paul W. Smith.
“I was just trying to keep myself calm to be really honest … kept on playing the shots that got me to the playoffs … kept on having puts to win it and just didn’t quite get ‘em in the hole, but I felt like it was just a matter of time.”
