Sleeping Through the Final Round of the Mercedes-Benz Championship.

It looks like Geoff Ogilvy is going to win the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Championship without me. I suppose he'll survive. I was fortunate to receive a nice promotion at work, but more money means more hours. They expect me there at 6:00 AM tomorrow, so I'm going into coma mode right after posting this. The five hour time difference from here to Hawaii precludes the rare prime time viewing opportunity. That's different, but what's really odd is while on Maui, some years ago, I was watching an NFL game at 9:00 AM. The beer was still fine!

As of right this very minute Ogilvy enjoys a five stroke advantage over Anthony Kim through 13 holes. He sits at -22. Kim is one in front of a surging Sean O'Hair, who is 7 under through 14 holes. DL III continues his quest to earn a spot in the Masters and is tied with O'Hair at -16 along with Justin Leonard. Looks like Geoff earns the tour's 1st victory of 2009 and a spot here next year. Tune in the Golf Channel to watch or follow scores online.

Be sure to hit my comments section if someone overtakes Ogilvy.

Til' next,


  1. Congrats on the promotion. But didn't you tell them the the extra hours would seriously cut into your golf time?

  2. ogilvy had this from day one. I thought Zach was going to do something. Love held his weight in that one, I did get him right. Scott played better than I expected, im going to kiss his picture when hubby is not looking, and you went to sleep. If you got one of those blackberrys the rss feed from the pga site is great, full leaderboard updated every 20 someodd seconds

  3. AG,

    I plead my case, but strangely they didn't seem to care.

  4. Hatter,

    Love your stream of consciousness musings. Me and a blackberry? I struggle with this PC.

  5. Call me crazy, but I see big things from Davis Love this season...???

  6. Crazy,

    May I call you Crazy?

    Agreed. This year's Kenny Perry?
