post #55 of 124

Great chip from Wie. Tie ballgame again.

post #56 of 124
Anybody know if Lexi can hit the ball farther than either of her bothers?

I haven't watched them play but I don't think I would handle it well if my sister could out-drive me. Would be motivation for sure.

When was the last time we saw a great duel between the two players paired in the final group of a major? YE Yang-Tiger in 2009 at Hazeltine? Or even Tiger-Rocco 2008 in the playoff? 

 

This has a match play feel to it (at least through two holes) that I can't remember seeing in a while on either tour. Correct me if I'm wrong.

She cannot. She's not super long, she's just super long for a woman. 274 this year, 271 last year.

Se Ri Pak is only two shots behind. It kind of does, but it could quickly become a three- or four-way race.

I'm at a family thing and cannot watch til later bit aren't Pak and Hull only a few strokes back? I don't think it's out if the question ymthsr either of them gets hot.

I love the contrast between Wie and Thompson tho. Makes for a great head to head matchup to see how differently they are swinging. One so controlled, the other so fearless.

@RandallT and @iacas good point. Those two are only 2 and 3 shots back respectively. Too early to make that call. 

post #61 of 124

Lexi gouges one to 35 feet and Michelle leaves a chip and run eight or ten feet short. Lexi's putt is five feet shy. Make/miss in either order could be big.

 

And… Wie misses. Back to -10. First bogey in last 35 holes.

post #62 of 124

Hmmm, it's Wie's first bogey all week on the front side. She parred the third hole in each of her previous three rounds. Hopefully she can bounce back quickly. 

 

And despite Lexi's unorthodox looking, aggressive swing, she seems to own it pretty darn well at the moment.

Birdie for Thompson, 2-shot lead now.

Yea, and dominating the unofficial proximity to the hole contest too.

Michelle hasn't seemed to notice that the greens seem firmer. Longer approach shots are riskier on firmer greens.
post #66 of 124

This is a great final pairing. Could be seeing these two go at it for years to come. Wie seems to be playing more tentative...Lexi could get wild the way her game goes.

Heyyyyy @jamo with 8000+ posts. Golf clap for you, buddy. :-D 

 

Jeez, Lexi Thompson is swinging it great this week.

Yup.

Two pretty good approaches into 5 though.

Heh. Number 8000 was the suitably bland:

Either way, it might be nice to have a pair of golf shoes that you can also get other uses out of.

Lexi about to go three up. Another Wie putt just short. a4_sad.gif
post #70 of 124
Michelle finally inside Lexi at 6. But unlikely to birdie.

Well not short on that one.

Wonder when she'll change the strategy of laying back if she remains down by three.

Good shot by Wie from 173, but on a 395 yard hole, it's not too much of a stretch to say she's laying too far back right now given Lexi's lead, not a terrible amount of trouble deep, and the firmness of the greens making wedges in hand pretty advantageous.

Lexi appears to have this in the bag. Even on 8.
