The Pat and Annika show

Monday will provide another 18 holes for Pat Hurst and Annika Sorenstam to duel with the US Women’s Open championship on the line. I forgot when writing this post that the women would not re-pair during their 36-hole marathon on Sunday, which meant that Hurst and Sorenstam played both their rounds together. Finishing tied gives them another chance to soak in a wet but amazing course while trying to determine this year’s champion.

Though many may discuss the failure of Michelle Wie to close the deal yet again after being tied for the lead after 3 rounds, I think the fact that the groups did not re-pair was a shame for both Michelle and the event. Mixing up the groups (and the personalities) for the final round might have produced even more drama than we saw on Sunday (though the finish was still exciting).

I’ll make an against-the-grain prediction by saying that Pat Hurst gets it done on Monday. (But perhaps I am rooting for Pat because she supports my personal theory that I can order a lot from the snack cart without hurting my game too much.) Others?

UPDATE: Annika is back on top of the women’s golfing world. Details here.
