The Dream Team's Nightmare

Saturday the U.S. Walker Cup Team discovered the downside of being a heavy favorite.

You see, sometimes your opponents don't get the memo!

After the GB&I Team jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the morning session, both teams split the afternoon matches. That means the favorites are down 7-5 going into today's matches, and there's bad weather coming in which could play into the hands of the "underdogs." With 14 points up for grabs -- 4 foursomes in the morning, 10 singles in the afternoon -- anything could happen now. Maybe 2 points isn't an overwhelming lead, but any lead helps when the weather turns on you.

The Walker Cup should be extremely interesting today. Potential upsets are almost always more interesting than runaway wins. After all, it takes two to make a race; otherwise it's just one runner out for a jog.

And while I'm talking about races, a couple of runners may make the LPGA event even more interesting than it already is:
Both of these ladies will be playing during the broadcast window on GC. Keep an eye out for them!
