The Night Before Christmas, When All 'Round The Course...
Think that a few guys between seven and seventeen under aren’t sleeping well tonight? Me too. The way I see it, -14 will be the magic number for top 30 and full playing privileges on the PGA Tour in 2006. Exactly 30 guys are at -11 after five rounds, and my guess is that -3 will be enough to get you through. We’ve seen two 64s already, so -7 or -8 is not out of the realm of the possible, which brings those around -7 into the picture. At the same time, we’ve seen the one-day blow-up from a number of golfers (Ryan Hietala, and Hunter Haas are two who come to mind), so the only two safe bets are co-leaders John B. Holmes (don’t confuse him) and D.A. Points.
Thing I’m wrong about: Just as I said that Bill Haas was on another slide downward, he produces 69-67 to move into a tie for the last spot. 67 on Monday will be more than enough to get his card, so let’s see. I’m not betting on him doing it.
Thing that baffles me: The Bionic Man is at -14. No, not Steve Austin or Lee Majors. Bill Glasson. Isn’t this guy like 75 or something? How many times will he have the stones to come back?
Thing that confuses me: Daisuke Maruyama. Don’t I drive a Daisuke? Is he kin to Shigeki? Does he ever smile?
Thing that amazes me: Six rounds in the 60s? Both co-leaders have a shot (they’re the only ones.) I’m not going to bet on either one, but it would be quite the studly move to do so.
Guy I’m Pulling For: Marco Dawson. Starts 76-73. Way the flip out of it. Follows with 68-69-64. Closing 68 should be enough.
