More Than Just the JBWere Masters

Ah yes, there's still more golf to be seen. Earlier in the week I forgot to mention that the ladies are playing an LET event in Dubai. GC is showing the tournament from 3-6pm ET. Today should be the third round -- the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters ends on Saturday -- and Lexi Thompson is leading by 2 over Sophie Gustafson and Margherita Rigon. At least, she was when I wrote this; those three hadn't teed off yet.

Lexi on the 9th tee

Meanwhile, Lee Westwood is playing a new event on the Asian Tour -- the Thailand Golf Championship -- and he shot the lowest round of his career in the first round. It was a 12-under 60, and it gave him a 5-shot lead over John Daly, who is also playing well. As I write this, Westwood has finished his second round although some players haven't teed off yet. He shot an 8-under 64 to back it up, putting him at -20 for the event and 13 shots ahead of Kwanchai Tannin and John Daly, now wa-a-a-ay back in second place. (Wave to the leader, folks. You probably won't be able to see him for long.)

If you want to read about Westwood's record round, here's an article from CNN about it. And if you want to check out the leaderboard, here's the link to the Asian Tour main page (in English!). That's the most convenient way to catch the current leaderboard. I'm adding it to the sidebar as well. GC will be airing the 2nd round today from noon to 3pm ET, just before the LET broadcast and right after the JBWere rebroadcast.

You can find the leaderboard for the JBWere here. And you can catch the leaderboard for the LET event here.

That should get you all up-to-date on the golf that's going on. At least, all the golf leaderboards I can find in English.
