Well, with a flood worthy of Noah hitting the greater Los Angeles area over the last couple of days, Mike Weir’s attempt to three-peat ended with a rather underwhelming playoff between Chad Campbell and Adam Scott. That meant a tournament ended after 36 holes for the first time in nearly a decade.
Can you say dull?
The problem is that too few PGA Tour events end up at sites like George Thomas’ Riviera, and with all the rain, hardly anyone got to see much of the course. They did show lots of shots into the sixth hole, the famous par three with the bunker in the middle of it. That’s about as close as the PGA Tour ever gets to playing on a quirky golf course. Neat seeing players chip from the green.
Hard to say whether the best man won — this was hardly a tournament at all. Colin Montgomerie shot 64 in his second round to vault into the top 10. Weir took a triple bogey in his second round to end up well back. Tiger Woods, apparently, used his time away from the course to get busy with Elin.
Just another week on the PGA Tour.
