"I Hear You Knockin'..."

Says the old song, "but you can't come in." Do you remember it? (This is the original -- I like the quirky vocals:)

I suspect Spencer Levin is tired of this song. And today he has a chance to turn it off forever.

Can he do it? That's the question.

On the plus side, he's putting light's out this week. He's leading the field in Total Putts and Putts per GIR, he's second in "Strokes Gained - Putting," and he's T5 in Sand Saves. He's only hitting about half his GIR which is usually the kiss of death, but it appears that he's scrambling well since he's still T4 in birdies and T58 in bogeys. (You want to be low in that category, right?)

But can he handle the stress of leading this time? You'll remember his meltdown at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, when he lost a 6-stroke lead to Kyle Stanley -- who was coming back from a similar meltdown the week before. This is the big question for Spencer.

I think he can. I watched him play the 17th Saturday. He drove into a bunker and, rather than take a big gamble with the lead on the line, he played out safely to the fairway -- too safely, according to Feherty & Friends -- and calmly got up and down for par.

Yeah, I think he can do it. Even with Sabbatini, Fowler, and Woods on his tail. (Unless Tiger's health improved overnight, I'm not sure he'll be a factor today. Given how well he's been hitting it, I think he's sicker than he's let on.)

And when he finally does come in, Jack's gonna shake his hand. That would be some sweet revenge, wouldn't it?

Come on in, Spencer. Please. It's time, boy!
