I do not like to talk about bad luck too much, these things tend to average out in the long run, but the events in the final round of the USPGA Championship, are worth repeating, if only to exorcise them from my mind !
Brett Wetterich was 6 shots up after 7 holes, playing a golfer without a birdie in 38 holes and managed to tie !
Ernie Els was my choice yesterday to finish runner up to Woods @ 6.0, he played, argubly, the best golf of the day, took second place early in the back nine and was about to go 4 clear of Woody Austin in third. When the American chipped into the hole from off the green, which fired him up to produce two birdies, Els then hit his one and only poor shot of the round, which cost him a stroke and second place by the same margin !
If that was not bad enough, I tipped Rose @7.0 on the email to be top European, only for him to be pipped by journeyman English pro Simon Dyson, shooting a low round of the day 64, 7 shots less than he had managed on any previous day !
Back shortly with some football news for this evening.
