Take a mulligan: it ain’t right, Natalie

It just doesn’t seem right. After John Senden won his first PGA event at the John Deere Classic by posting a 19-under, Natalie Gulbis was still on the course in Toledo, Ohio trying to do the same on the LPGA tour. At 18-under after the 10th hole (after rattling off 6 birdies), Natalie ended up needing only one more birdie to win her first LPGA victory. Like Senden, Nat needed 19-under to win. But, eight holes later, no such luck. Nat had several great looks at the hole, but her birdie putts always seemed to graze the edge of the hole and come out. They were either hit a tad too hard, or Lady Luck had run dry for Natalie Gulbis.

As I watched the back nine, I kind of sensed that Natalie Gulbis was one one-putt away from her first victory. But, after leading the tournament for most of the day, at times by a three or four shot margin, Natalie could not get any of her putts to go down. And her playing partner Mi Hyun Kim was not about to give up and hand Natalie the victory. It just doesn’t seem right that none of Nat’s putts on the back nine went down after they all did on the front. But that’s golf, a fickle game.
