Up In The Air

Despite waiting as late as possible the last few nights, the WGC scores I saw before bed bore little resemblance to the actual scores I saw the next morning. At the time I wrote yesterday's post, for instance, I had no clue that Ernie Els would stumble on the way in, that Brandt Snedeker would have a putt for 59, or that Lee Westwood would grab a share of the lead with a 61. The play is just too volatile to know what might happen before the end of the round.

As I write this, Lee Westwood is at -20, followed by a group at -18 that includes Ian Poulter, Ernie Els, Louis Oosthuizen, and Phil Mickelson. The last group (Lee, Louis, and Phil) has only played 8 holes. And the lead changes with almost every hole.

OOPS! Ernie just posted another birdie to reach -19. See what I mean?

And it's not just the men... the Mizuno Classic on the LPGA/JLPGA this week has had a similar situation. After Bo-Mee Lee from Korea separated herself from the rest of the field at -10 in the second round, she -- like Louis Oosthuizen -- suddenly lost her mojo and has shot an even-par final round through 15 holes. This has given Stacy Lewis a chance, and she's taken it -- she shot a -8 round to post -11 in the clubhouse.

The season of come-from-behind winners doesn't seem to be waning yet. The Limerick Summary for the WGC may be a very interesting verse this week!
