PGA train wrecks

I suppose when you play golf on a Monday morning, you should expect to see some ugly doings. But a number of the world’s best golfers are looking like weekend hacks this morning. (Fortunately, unlike poor Jason, I can work from home this morning to watch the finish.) Actually, on the TV coverage we have not seen much of Vijay and Retief, as both limped home despite having two closing par fives to make up ground.

As you can see from the PGA Championship leaderboard, as of 10:40 Tiger is still the leader in the clubhouse, but Steve Elkington now has an 8-foot putt for a closing birdie to get in at -4. Thomas Bjorn and Phil Mickelson are both at -3, and so we are having an exciting finish.

UPDATE: Steve Elkington hit a good put, but missed and thus is now the leader in the clubhouse at -3. Phil also hit a good putt that also missed for birdie on 17, so he is -3 going to 18. Bjorn is also at -3 but in a very tough spot on 18 …. and Bjorn his a good trap shot and a great putt for birdie that lipped out. Now Bjorn and Elk are in at -3. Davis needs to make birdie to tie, Phil needs birdie to win, and is in the rough with a good lie to get up and down for his second major.
