Wild At Heart

It seems like it is raining every day here almost. Like the Men's tournament this weekend, the LPGA here in Rochester had a number of rainy days to start their tournament. Luckily things got better and last Sunday was an amazing day for golf fans as Scotland's Catriona Matthew came from out of nowhere to shot a 4 under while the number one golfer Inbee Park shot a 3 over to both end up at a playoff at -5. They ended up playing three extra holes after playing two rounds earlier in the day to make up for all the rain earlier in the week. After last years blow out win, this added a nice level of drama to what might be the last year of the tournament. Suzann Pettersen had a great day shooting a day best -7 to tie for third place with American Morgan Pressel who narrowly missed a number of birdie shots that might have given her the win. The more I attend this great tournament, the more I appreciate what these girls do and they are very approachable. I got a number of autographs other the course of the tournament along with my girl Michelle Wie who actually made the cut this year to tie for 9th place at -2.
