Woods Spots O'Hair 2.5 Strokes Per Side at Bay Hill Finale

Just like your regular Sunday foursome Sean O'Hair has a 2.5 stroke advantage per side as he tries to capture the 2009 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. As most of the field fell backwards on Saturday due to heavy winds, Woods snuck himself into the final group with O'Hair by matching him in the 3rd round with a 71. That left O'Hair the same 5 shot cushion he began the day with. Six behind O'Hair at -1 were Ryuji Imada, Jason Gore and Zach Johnson. Johnson was one of the few players to advance on par Saturday firing an admirable 68 in windy conditions. The next group at even par included Robert Allenby, Pat Perez, and Brandt Snedeker.


The greater Orlando area is currently experiencing heavy thunderstorms. That's pushed final round tee times back almost two hours. The delay means it's doubtful the final round will be completed before dark. Looks like the boys may be grabbing some OT for their efforts. The afternoon's forecast, after the rains clear, calls for partly cloudy skies, 76 degrees, and 20 mph winds. Expect softer conditions with players firing darts at the Sunday pin placements.

Til' next,
