What the Heck is Going On??

I just got back from a round of golf and missed the first hour of the Women’s US Open Coverage. However, I’ve turned it on and it looks like this has just turned out to be a blood bath.

Lorena ‘Ocho’a hit one of the worst drives with a three-wood that I have ever seen from a professional. Ochoa got up on the 18th tee and looked like a Sunday hack, snap-hooking her drive into the water. Currently, she is in tears while being interviewed, and literally seemed to be still in shock from making an 8 on the final hole of the tournament to finish at +3. Johnny Miller gave her a 75% chance of winning if she had just parred the hole, but ‘Ocho’a folded like a deck of cards.

Now, NBC coverage is looking for something to show and a new story to come up with. They have started to follow on of thegolfblog.com’s interviewee’s Natalie Gulbis, who is +5 playing the 18th hole, while -1 for her round. Gulbis has just missed the green on the 18th, appearing to hit it in the greenside bunker. Gulbis hit it to about 6 feet and has a putt to be the leader in the clubhouse at +5. Gulbis hit a good putt, but unfortuantley made bogey, finishing at +6. Gulbis is tied with Lorie Kane, who has the only under par round of the day 69.

NBC is also starting to follow Brittany Lang (a), who will be a Junior at Duke next year, if she does not turn professional. She is currently even par for the day and has an even par round through 16. Lang just hit the 16th green and has the par 5 17th to play.

The leaders are currently limping around the golf course. Birdie Kim just birdied the 11th hole to get to +2, and Kim leads Morgan Pressel (a) by 1 shot.

Annika’s dream for a “Soren”slam is over. She’s +5 for the day and +11 for the tournament.

Leaderboard at 4:23pm EST.

Kim (+2) Thru 11
Pressel (a) (+3) Thru 10
Lang (a) (+5) Thru 15
Jo (+5) Thru 12
Stupples (+5) Thru 10
