Don't read this if you want to be surprised from the start of the 3 pm telecast of the ADT Championship's final round! None of the people I've called about watching have gotten back to me, so thought I'd blog the front 9 at least.
Right now the field remains fairly bunched, with each twosome playing roughly similar styles of golf, except for the lead pairing, where the only thing similar about them is that Seon Hwa Lee (E) and Suzann Pettersen (+3) have each made 2 birdies in their 1st 10 holes. The next pairing, Paula Creamer (+2) and Jeong Jang (+3) played birdie-less fronts, but Jang just birdied the 10th. Karrie Webb (-2) and Ji-Yai Shin (-1) are reprising their showdown in their 1st event of the season as they make the turn in their last LPGA appearance of '08. Meanwhile, Angela Stanford and Eun-Hee Ji have made 8 pars in a row as they approach the 9th green.
So far, nobody's doing what Lorena Ochoa did last year around this time--get off to such a hot start so early that she forced her competitors to take risks their games couldn't back up under that kind of pressure.
