With all the publicity about the gret one Jack Nicklaus' exit yesterday, this championship has today taken on a feel that I have not had about a Golf event in over ten years. Why? this is probably the best leaderboard I have seen any time in the last few years, maybe ever. Woods, Goosen, Olazabal, Montgomerie, Singh, Daly, Garcia, Michael Campbell and for a while Mickelson. With the exception of Ernie Els, today's best and champions of the past all seem to be paying the Golden Bear a fitting tribute with some of the best golf my eyes have ever seen.
Buckle up, this is likely to be a classic weekend we will remember for years. The local favorite, Colin Montgomerie who has been so close so many times at majors getting a shot in front of the home fans. Vijay Singh who seems to have won everything else getting a shot at the event he covets the most. Jose Maria Olazabal, the great champion of the past having his best week in years. Sergio Garcia chasing his first major with his usual flair and youthful exuberance. John Daly returning to site of his greatest triumph and playing great golf. The U.S. Open champion, Michael Campbell returning to the site of his famous near miss in 1995. Oh yeah, and some guy named Woods leading. This is going to be a great weekend!
