Flipping between the PGA and LPGA events on TV, I turned the channel at the right moment. I saw Annika Sorenstam hit a 94 yard sand wedge over a group of towering trees from out on the 15th fairway back to the hole she was actually playing, the 16th. She got it up over the trees and hit it on the green, with backspin to put it within 5 feet of the hole. She birdied and cemented her 7th Major of her career, winning again the LPGA McDonald’s Championship. The shot was miraculous. Tigeresque. If you missed it, try to catch it on highlights on the Golf Channel tonight. It’s worth it. One of the best shots I’ve seen this year.

Then I saw some of Sergio Garcia’s Sunday charge at Westchester. The only problem: ABC pulled its coverage after the 1st playoff hole leaving east coast viewers and even some west coast viewers completely hanging. Sergio credited his win to Brad Faxon’s putting tips that week. That’s awfully nice of Brad, and way to go, Sergio. That’s 2 wins in the past 6 tournaments. Now, on to Shinnecock!
