South can see four potential losers: one spade, one heart and two clubs. Certainly, if West K Hearts
has the spade king, East is sure to hold the club ace. But if East has the trump king, there
are 10 tricks via four spades, one heart and five diamonds. Declarer just has to be careful
how he tries to draw trumps.
South should take the first trick (so as not to risk a club shift), cross to the board with a
diamond and ... what?
Declarer should lead the spade nine, the lowest trump in the dummy that can win the trick if
the finesse is working. When the nine holds, declarer runs the spade queen, plays a spade
to his jack, cashes the ace of spades and trundles the diamonds for his contract.

Tom LaFemina scored his ace on the Ryder course, knocking in a 9-iron shot

Port St. Lucie native, also made an ace on the Ryder, holing a 114-yard shot with
a 30-degree hybrid on the par-3 12th hole. Congrats, Tom and Angela!
