Beware the Walking Wounded

It's an old saying, but it rang true Saturday.

First it was Paula Creamer. Still in some pain from thumb surgery, she played early on Saturday, posting at 10-under and remaining the leader at the ShopRite LPGA Classic until M.J. Hur finally managed to post at 11-under.

And then he showed up at Pebble. The first tip-off came when Johnny Miller critiqued one of his swings and had nothing but good things to say about it. (Really, Johnny did that; it was unbelievable.) And then all Tiger did was rip through the back nine with a 5-under 31 to post a 66 and get under par (-1)! He now sits in 3rd place, behind Graeme McDowell (-3) and leader Dustin Johnson (-6). Only 3 players are under par; Els sits at even and Mickelson at 1-over.

It's shaping up to be a great Sunday for golf.

And of course, the U.S. Open always finishes on Father's Day. (Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there!) You can pop over to my poetry site Will Shakespeare for Hire if you want to check out the poem I did in my dad's memory, Dad Reckoning. And if you want a little laugh about the joys of fatherhood, check out this Tiny Toons classic, Minister Golf.

In case you aren't familiar with Tiny Toons, every now and then the "kids" remember their "childhood." When Plucky Duck was little, he had a fascination with flushing things down the toilet -- hence, the "down the hole" joke. It works well here.

Have a great day!
