Canadian Open final round (finally) underway

Surprising to see how fast tour players can play when they need to catch flights! Goosen was around the back nine in around two hours. The fourth round is already underway — without a re-pair, and Anthony Kim has just hit the course. Co-leader Goosen is underway in a few minutes. The course is very wet, but quite playable and there’s a strong wind out here this morning that is heading south — that means 18 plays straight downwind. Goosen had 176-yards into the hole, which plays 525 yards off the tee.

I’m betting on a win by Kim, who had a messy card for his third round that included two eagles on the back nine. I’m going to walk with Kim now — and since television coverage doesn’t start until mid-afternoon, most people will only catch the tail end of his round. I’ll be twittering (tweeting?) along the way. Follow me at my twitter feed.

It’ll be tough to follow — since the leaders could tee off early in the fourth round and be finished with a lot of golfers still on the course.
