Nobody doesn't like Sarah Lee, except maybe her competition this week at the Michelob ULTRA Open
Golfweek magazine often tells us who shot the “round of the week"; this week’s issue they credit Rory Sabbatini, with his third-round 64 at the Wachovia Championship.
Sabbatini’s round included six birdies and an eagle. Lee had nine birdies and a bogey, beating even, dare I say it? Birdie Kim. Yeah, Rory, eagles are great and all, but nine birdies gets the job done too.
Lee isn’t finished with today’s round yet, but currently at 11 under, she’s topping the leaderboard. As I write, Morgan Pressel, Cristie Kerr, and Paula Creamer are among the crowd tied for eleventh. Brittany Lincicome, Birdie Kim, and Suzann Pettersen are in the tie for fifth. Should be an interesting weekend.

of who does it.
As a man, I am compelled to spend most
of my time watching PGA and Nationwide
Tour events because I desperately want
to believe that I COULD someday hit the
ball as far and/or score as well as any
of those guys.
But, truth be told, I'm consistently
amazed with the LPGA Tour. Especially
as of late. People are always talking
about how effortlessly the PGA Tour
players swing the golf club and how far
the resulting shot goes. But what I am
truly amazed at--especially being a
caddie--is the amazing display of course management skills being practiced by
every LPGA Tour player on a regular
basis. They certainly leave their ego's
at the door. A 220 carry over water?
Why not hit a 7-iron and a wedge and make your
birdie the smart way?
Anyway. I respect their self-control.
That's always something I preach to my
players but can never accomplish on my
ed: a fine point, thanks for pointing that out. I'll be sure to fix that in the future.
