Some Major Play at the Monster

I think it's a bit unusual, and that's why I noticed it.

Of the top eight players on the WGC-Cadillac scoreboard, six of them are major winners:
  • Tiger Woods (14)
  • Graeme McDowell (1)
  • Phil Mickelson (4)
  • Bubba Watson (1)
  • Charl Schwartzel (1)
  • Keegan Bradley (1)
The other two non-major winners, Steve Stricker and Fredrik Jacobson, are both extremely good ball-strikers and putters... and not power hitters, the way most winners at Doral are. (Of course, the same can be said of Graeme, who's still bogey-free after two rounds.)

As I was saying, it's a bit unusual. Typically a WGC leaderboard sports several players who are still trying to make a mark in the game. But not so far this week.

If the wind comes up as predicted, this could end up being the most exciting event so far this season. There are so many big names in the chase, and with Tiger currently in the lead by two strokes...

All we need now is a Sunday grouping with:
  • Tiger, Phil, Stricks
  • Tiger, Phil, Bubba or
  • Tiger, Phil, Graeme
and the announcers will go freaking wild. Not to mention the gallery. Major play indeed.

The GC coverage starts at 11am ET and switches to NBC later.

As Phil often says, this could be "fun."
