2006 is Year of the Comeback in Golf's Major Championships
What in the name of the 1986 Masters is going on here? Since when does it make any sense at all that golfers on the downside of their careers can turn the clock back and become awesome again - en masse?
First, it’s Karrie Webb, dunking a wedge shot on the 72nd hole of the Kraft Nabisco - an LPGA major championship no less - to get into a playoff, win and play like her old self hence, this after spending the previous few years in a funk.
Today, Colin Montgomerie (for God’s sake) has stepped up to the plate and shot a sensational 1 under par round in the first round of the US Open to take the lead. This happens to be Monty’s favorite major and the one for which his game is most suited. Who knows what wind will blow through Winged Foot. Perhaps the wind of years gone by.

As the cut will likely be in the 10 over par range, I wish I could book your bet.
The perfect ending to this year of comeback major winners would be Laura Davies capturing the Women's British Open."
I noticed Laura is looking quite trim and svelt after spending so many hours at the gym. She just might do it.
David Duval. Naming him on Friday morning. 4 under after 13 holes for the day.
Who's next for the last 2 Major Championships - Nick Price & David Duval?
Well Nick is heading home for the weekend and DD is competing........WHO KNEW!!!!
Oh come on Jim, you can do it.
Well done Geoff, okay a bit of respect for once for Montgomerie, he dug deep, he did not blow up, he smiled, was it once or twice, this was tension at its best, when Phil carved his tee shot at the last and it hit the hospitality tents, then the second shot into the tree, thought I was back in Carnoustie watching Van De-Velde, oh it was wonderful golf.
E'm Kreskin, not familiar with that name Shanks, is this some kind of soothsayer ha!.
This was golf at its very best.
