This Marino May Win a Big One at Pebble Beach National Pro Am

If you consider the Crosby Clambake to still be one of the big ones, Steve Marino might succeed where his namesake's Miami Dolphins fell short. Steve took a 4 shot lead into the 3rd round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am today with a sterling 66 at Pebble. That left him at -13 through two rounds and a 4 shot cushion over D.A. Points. Marino's only used 51 putts over the first two days and that's what provides the advantage. D.A. Points hung tough in solo second at -9. Keegan Bradley grasped 3rd on his own at -8. 9 golfers were at -7 including Arnie's grandson Sam Saunders and Padraig Harrington. Young Sam carded a 67 today to earn mention on the Golf Channel telecast. Marino and Harrington head to the Monterey Peninsula course considered the easiest of the three in the rota, for tomorrow's 3rd round. The tourney uses an unusual 54 hole cut policy. How about a 72 hole cut and a shoot out on Monday for the survivors?        


Hunter Mahan has quietly put himself in position at -7.

Phil Mickelson's at a rather pedestrian -4 through 16 today.

Tommy Gainey sits at -2 through 15 at this release. Pulling for Tommy with a super early projected cut of -1.

David Duval claims the "Sybil" round of the day following his opening 77 with a spectacular 65 and rests at even par.

Jim Furyk uncharacteristically off game at +1 through 16 at press time. 

John Daly imploded today with a 77 at Spyglass. Looks like he can spend the weekend watching TV on his golf bag. 

Great tourney so far.  The views at Pebble today were unmatched. Stark contrast to here.

Swing hard, look up,
