The see-saw winning ways of Lorena/Annika… I just love it don’t you? It’s way better than the Tiger/Phil battle in my opinion. It’s seems more civilized in some ways – less bitchy, which is ironic.
I didn’t get to watch the event as we don’t get ESPN 2 on cable up in the Canadian tundra (grrr), but I saw some highlights on TGC. I was rather shocked at Lorena’s temper – did you see her wack her club in the rough about 5 times – might have been the 9th hole where she had a bogie. Yikes! I thought she was such a calm and collected kind of girl 🙂
I thought this writer below was funny, saying Lorena was struggling with her game lately with a fifth and T12 in the last two events. I wish I struggled like that 😉
Ochoa, who lead going into Sunday had Pressel and Matthew hot on her heals, “I think there were like five or six players just right there at 8- and 9-under, so it was a difficult situation. I love the feeling of adrenaline and just trying to be good and be smart and win at the end.”
As much as I love seeing Lorena wipe out the field, it’s more fun to watch a tight race. I was really happy to see Morgan shoot a 66 – she’s got so much game, it’s a shame she hasn’t done better this year. Hopefully this final round will spur her on for the rest of the year and she’s come out on top soon.
Annika started so well, but ended tied for 11th. Not too shabby, but I’m sure she was disappointed with her 71. Christina Kim was in fine form, which I love to see. I really missed her at the Solheim Cup last year. I hope she plays her way onto the 2009 team. She deserves to be there.
