The charge Mickelson mase Saturday was good, the triple bogey yesterday on a Par 3 not so good, and ruined an otherwise solid chance at another green jacket. The jockeying around the leaderboard was interesting, always a good handful of players in the hunt until the second to last group (Louie & Bubba) wrapped up. When Oosthuisen hit that Albatross I thought Holy Cow, this guy is on fire and gonna roll to victory. But Bubba kept fighting and made some awesome shots to tie Louie and the playoff was good, tied on 18 and Bubba had a shot to wrap it up but just missed his putt. Number 10 was unreal, Bubba goes out wide one way and Louie trying to play it safe goes the other side. Louie actually had a better angle to the pin but that shot out of the pines with a lofted iron for 150 yeards and 40-50 yards of curl on it was unreal. And all he had to do was two-putt for the jacket. Fun tournament this year! Louie is a passionate guy, good chap, family man & Christian and I was pulling for him.
Can't wait to see what happens at the US Open - San Francisco's Olympic Club (June 14-17), The British Open - Royal Lytham & St. Annes (July 19-22) & PGA - Kiawah Island, S.C. (Aug. 9-12) "Oceans Course" for the first time.
