OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF ...
VJ SINGH - KJ CHOI// ERNIE ELS- PAUL BROADHURST// SERGIO GARCIA- STEVE STRICKER
VJ is a fine final round player and I expect him to put in a bit of a charge today. KJ has played a lot of high pressure golf recently and looked a little drained yesterday.
Ernie played extremely well on saturday, he had six birdies and would have been breathing down Sergio's neck, were it not for an 8 at the par 5 , 6th hole, where he went out of bounds. That was bad luck as his drive hit the path and could have bounced anywhere. He is not totally out of this yet and is capable of shooting very low. There is some 6.0 for him in the without Garcia and Stricker market, which you might wish to consider.
Once again Stricker proved what a fine weekend player he is yesterday and his iron shots were sensational. Despite his lead, Sergio is bound to be nervous and I think he will be cautious in the extreme, Garcia will not win any extra for a 4 stroke victory and the American can take advantage of this and at least, close the gap.
5 points Singh to beat Choi 1.83 general
5.5 points Els to beat Broadhurst 1.57 Hills/ Chandlers
4.5 points Stricker to beat Garcia 2.15 Pinnacle ... 2.25 general
