OK, so I must confess I got too engrossed in the Lakers-Suns game to watch the final round of the Zurich Classic. If you missed the Lakers game, Kobe Bryant hit two incredible last second shots, one to force overtime and one to win it. Poor Steve Nash (who almost won the game) made two costly blunders at the end of regulation and at the end of overtime, although maybe he did try to call time-0ut but the refs did not hear it.

Anyway, I enjoyed seeing the highlights of the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, which ended with two “last second-shots” of its own. First, Fred Funk drained a 25-footer on the 18th hole to shoot a 62. Meanwhile, journeyman Chris Couch could barely get his ball out of the green-side bunker because his ball was near the back lip. Luckily for Couch, the ball squirted out onto the rough. Couch then chipped on and into the hole! What a dramatic finish! But it’s hard to top the Kobe finish.
