Soggy SunCoast Series Results
It's all snow all the time here, but I still have about an ounce of sympathy left for the LPGA and Futures Tour golfers who had a long wet slot last week in the SunCoast Ladies Series. Meredith Duncan caught Briana Vega at -5 in the second round and both were declared co-winners when the final round was cancelled due to heavy rain, denying Johanna Mundy her chance for her 3rd straight win. Looks like I should have added Mundy to my list of sleepers and wild cards heading into the '09 LPGA season. Moira Dunn, who I did put on my list, tied Mundy for 3rd at -3, beating M.J. Hur and Taylor Leon (E, T8), Hannah Yun (+1, T14), Jeehae Lee (+2, 16th), and Stacy Lewis (+4, T19), among many others. It's great to see that Moira's sharp already; when they update their current money list, she should be in the top 5. Lewis, meanwhile, who went 70-78, still has plenty of time to scrape the rust off her game before she begins her 1st full LPGA season. Hopefully this will be a wake-up call for her.
