What took her so long? Lorena Ochoa waited until the 3rd round of the Ginn Open to fire a 65 and take her anointed place as the tournament leader. What's left to say about this woman? Tiger's next streak will be described as Lorenaesque. She's averaging 279 yds. per drive. That's leaving her 30 yards ahead of most of her competitors. That translates into at least a two club advantage for her approach shots. Even with a lukewarm putter, which she's shown lately, she's uncatchable. Her putting misses are for eagles and birdies, everyone else's for pars.
Rookie Yani Tseng will start tomorrow one behind Ochoa. Her feet will be in the fire and it will be interesting to see how the first-timer responds. I have a touch of ADD, so since no one else is within four shots of Ochoa's lead, I'm not going to list them. Annika's had a tough week. Why, I'm not sure.
Tune in tomorrow. Maybe not for a tantalizing close finish, but for another peek at history.
