Justin Leonard had an 8-stroke lead on the field going into the final round at the Fed Ex St. Jude Classic. At one point today, he had a 9-stroke lead. Well, within a few hours, his lead dwindled. David Toms shot a 63. Justin, meanwhile, was blowing fumes. He had to save par on the 17th with a chip and 5-footer. Then on the dangerous 18th hole, which is a dog-leg lined with water on the left, Justin decided to take the water out of play. He his 3-wood into the fairway bunker on the right. He then hit his iron way right toward the grandstand. After getting a drop from the grandstand, he flubbed his wedge, barely getting over the bunker and leaving about a 40-footer for par. His putt rolled past the hole about five feet. Thankfully, Justin made the bogey putt — after which he collapsed in mock exhaustion. After the round, Justin said he wished he had played more aggressively. Apparently so. But a win is a win.
