Rain K.O.s WGC-CA Championship - Ogilvy Leads

Mother nature took down the Blue Monster today mid- way through the 3rd round of the 2008 WGC-CA Championship. Geoff Ogilvy leads at -14. Fellow Aussie Adam Scott trails by a single shot. At -11 stands Vijay , -8 on the round so far, Tim Clark, -7 on the day, and Tiger Woods, whose even par on the day has him moving in reverse. I imagine Woods is some kind of hoppin' mad at not being in red numbers when everyone else is playing this like a local muni. Others playing their way back into the tournament include Jim Furyk, -6 for the round, -10 overall, and Graeme Storm, -7 today, and -10 total as well. The Blue Light Monster was once again ready to be had. Minimal winds and ideal course conditions exposed the beast.

The third round will resume Sunday morning with the last group on the 11th hole. Tomorrow's forecast calls for likely showers and thunderstorms with a high of 76 degrees. I'd gladly trade that for the tundra here.

Average golfer's bizarre golf comment of the week. Courtesy of Johnny Miller, commenting on Sergio Garcia's new Stan Utley aided putting stroke. After observing a Garcia practice stroke, Johnny said, "I like the way the toe comes alive." Garcia proceeded to leave the six footer short. I suppose the toe needed to be a little more alive.

I wish NBC Sports would juggle their line up to show the tournament at the resumption of play. Today's round started early due to the impending weather. NBC chose to air on tape delay, which in my opinion is useless. That's like betting on highlights of the 2007 World Series. I'll take the Sox!

Til' next,
