A Soggy Saturday at the Barclays

Sergio went backward today with a 3-over 74 on a day when roughly two-thirds of the field was even or better. Such things happen in the game of golf, as we all know; one day we're unstoppable, and the next we get stopped… hard.

Of course, it can work the other way also. That’s the ‘beauty’ of golf. (Some players have another word for it!)

There was no better illustration of this today than Paul Goydos. Friday he got to 3-under on the day, only to give it all back and shoot even par. Saturday he got to 3-under again, and this time he kept it. He’s tied at 9-under with Steve Marino, who also shot a 3-under 68 and is looking for his first win.

Can either hold on? That’s anyone’s guess… especially with Tiger, Zach Johnson, and Padraig Harrington all just five back and Steve Stricker only three. Saturday’s round was played ‘lift, clean, and place,’ but the weather is expected to be better Sunday and the Tour prefers to play the ball down if at all possible. If the course dries out a bit, we could have a real shoot-out.
