Annika Sorenstam says: "Six strokes is nothing"
Annika?s chances at the Grand Slam are looking a little less certain, after her bogey, bogey, bogey finish yesterday. She ended up +4, leaving her six strokes behind unlikely leader Nicole Perrot of Chile.
Still, she seems unfazed. In her post-round interview, she said, ?Thirty-six holes is a lot of golf left. Six strokes is nothing.?
She just might be right. Remember Tiger Woods at the Masters? With a record-breaking seven straight birdies to take the lead from Chris DiMarco, he showed that six strokes is nothing, indeed.
Paula Creamer was up and down yesterday, and not the good kind. She started out three over in four holes, but then went eight under in nine holes to tie for the lead. Eight under in nine holes! A 43-minute rain delay iced her, however, and when she returned to the course she gave some of it back with three bogeys. Still, she finished with a solid two-under 69, good enough to place her only three strokes off the lead overall. And all that with an upset stomach. ?I was just trying not to get sick out on the golf course,? she said later.
So can Annika get her game back together to win this thing? Why not? It?s Saturday! It?s anything-can-happen-day!
Michelle Wie is still hanging in, just two strokes off the lead going into today’s round
