Only Elmer Fudd could state the obvious and make it sound so fresh!
Indeed, there is only one Golf Boy left -- Mr. Retro himself, Hunter Mahan. Devoid of his fuzzy vest, Hunter (get the Elmer Fudd tie-in now?) still managed to put away Y.E. Yang quite handily, winning 9 holes on his way to a 5&3 victory.
Of course, that wasn't the only interesting match Thursday. Storylines just keep popping up and slipping away...
For example, the Brandt Snedeker/Kyle Stanley rematch gave Sneds a 2-0 record in their 2012 one-on-one duels.
Sang-moon Bae is proving to be one tough match player, having taken out Poulter in the first round and Schwartzel in the second. He faces John Senden today, who's been something of a quiet juggernaut himself.
Miguel Angel Jimenez took out Keegan Bradley. I can't say I'm disappointed -- I'm a fan of both guys, but one of them had to lose -- but it was a bit unexpected. MAJ hasn't played particularly well over the last few months, and yet he's taken out both Sergio and Keegan. Maybe he's just been aching for some one-on-one. I hope Rory doesn't leave him aching today...
Both Dustin Johnson and Lee Westwood are in the 3rd round for the first time in their careers. I think that makes them dangerous, as they've each gotten a boost from this. Lee couldn't stop grinning during his interview after his match.
Of course, the real shocker -- depending on how you look at it -- is that Tiger's out after Nick Watney beat him 1up.
But Martin Kaymer is still alive after a tough match against David Toms. I'm liking his chances better with each passing day. But there's onwy one German weft... and one Golf Boy in the same bracket.
Of course there was onwy one German to start with, but that's beside the point.
