Perhaps I Made Inbee Mad...

And Sei Young Kim and maybe Bernhard Langer too. Langer merely doubled his 36-hole lead during the 3rd round of the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS, so it would take a massive breakdown for him not to defend his title today.

But if Inbee wins she'll have gone back-to-back-to-back at the KPMG Women's PGA, a feat accomplished only by Annika. (I know GC said Mickey Wright also did it but, according to my sources, Wright won it 4 times in 6 years -- 1958, 1960, 1961, 1963 -- NOT 3 times in a row.)

[CORRECTION: GC said Patty Berg won 3 consecutive Titleholders Championships in 1937, 1938 and 1939. My mistake.]

All Inbee did was go bogey-free in the 2nd and 3rd rounds while everyone else struggled. As she told GC, she simply did everything well. Her Saturday 66 (-7 on the par-73 Westchester course) was a thing of beauty.

Barring a complete collapse by Inbee, her only real competition is Sei Young Kim. You remember her -- she beat Inbee in Hawaii with a hole-out eagle on the first playoff hole. The rookie already has two wins this year, the same as Inbee, and would be tied with her after 54 holes had it not been for bogeys on 10 and 18.

The irony for me is that I considered making Sei Young one of my "5 to Watch" this week but decided against it because of her inconsistency this season. She has either won or been largely invisible on Sunday. I guess she picked a good week to reappear!

At any rate, it looks like this will be the tournament to watch today if you want drama... or if you're just hoping to see history made. You've got to think Inbee has a great chance at getting her 6th major and a 3-peat today, or that Sei Young is going to make her 3rd win in her rookie season a major.

NBC. 3pm ET. Be there.
