    Watching the LPGA

    Alright, I know it's questionable to watch women's golf at all, but with Mickelson having a double-digit lead, it's just not that interesting.

    I've just seen Lorena Ochoa hit consecutive HYBRIDS from 140 yards out of the rough. I don't care how bad they say the lie is, it's the LPGA Tour and the rough is never that bad. I know she shot 62 the other day, but that's really sad. She must have hit a lot of fairways that day.

    Anyways, no wonder Michelle Wie is doing well out there. She's so much bigger and stronger than the rest of the women. It's only a matter of time before she starts to win.

    I stopped watching Phil and really enjoyed the women's golf today.

    It was obvious today that Wie's issue is not her physical game, it's her mental game.

    I was shocked to see Webb up there, she vanished a few years ago.

    Ochoa's eagle was CLUTCH, when Wie and Gulbis were anything but.

    In sudden death, Ochoa's putt from off the green was pretty poor as it wasn't even close to the hole....probably cost her the win IMO.

    Wie should have putted from off the green on the 72nd hole. Don't know what she was thinking.

    I watched too and was surprised that Wie didn't take a bit more time over her shot on the 72nd. Her mental game definately needs work, you could see that Webbs eagle had effected her by the look on her face when the she heard the crowd go wild on the 18h while she was on the 16th.

    Enjoyed the drama though, shame Ochoa didn't win the playoff, though I was rooting for Wie or Gulbis to get their first win on tour.

    Wie was just a little over-aggressive on her chip...signs of impetuous youth, but what were you doing when you were 16? (I can't believe I'm defending her, btw)

    To say that Gulbis was not clutch is pretty ignorant...she made 4 birdies and no bogeys, what else would you have her do? Not a bad finish for someone who was 11 shots out of the lead starting Saturday.

    I just meant clutch on 18th sensfan. It all comes down to that one hole, doesn't it?

    BTW, Gulbis IS hot. I've never seen a gal like her on the local courses, except handing me beer for $5!

    I guarantee you that Lorena Ochoa isn't patting herself on the back this morning and calling herself "clutch"...she is so mad that she played so poorly on the back nine. You could tell who played well and who didn't in the post-round interviews. Gulbis was pretty content with her performance, said she committed to her putt on the last hole, and it just didn't go in. Ochoa, on the other hand, was very upset with her driver, saying she couldn't get it in play and was very disappointed. Didn't sound like someone who considered herself clutch, did it?
