3rd Round Notes From 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am

Spectacular day in an edenic setting. Celebrities, some Tom Foolery and general lightheartedness were the buzzwords at the ATTPBNPA today for the 3rd round. Between hole interviews and cut-ups were the norm and I might add refreshing in the stodgy world of professional golf on Midas courses. That being said...

It's Steve Marino's baby to lose as he chalked up a one stroke advantage for tomorrow's finale. He was +1 at Pebble today and sits at -12. One back at -11 are Bryce Molder, 14 at Spyglass and Jimmy Walker with a snake belly low -7 at Monterey. D.A., partnered with Bill Murray, salvaged a -1 at Pebble in what at one point could have been a disastrous round. Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan are at -7 with an outside shot.

Mark Wilson, Charley Hoffman, Mike Weir, and Paul Goydos all missed the cut. I almost made Goydos a dark horse pick. Phew.

Just in. John Daly missed the cut. Too bad, the blimp was using his pants for vector verification.

I listened to Kelly Tilghman early and Ian Baker Finch later. Now I'm diabetic. Thanks. 

The Lewis Carroll hat and janitor attire notwithstanding, I'm not sure Bill Murray's been outside in months until this weekend.    

George Lopez seemed to have a genuine axe to grind with David Feherty during their interview. May be an old Hispanic/Irish gang thing for all I know.  

Watching Hank Haney's ex-pupils might not be the ticket to getting his phone to ring.  

Think I'll pop a couple and catch the final round. Nice mid-winter antidote.

Swing hard, look up,
