Leonard and Irwin win today

There was NO surprise that Hale Irwin won the Turtle Bay tonight. He's only won it 5 times in a row now.

I was surprised that Justin Leonard won the Bob Hope Chrystler Championship. The tournament was Joe Ogilvy's to win but a 73 ruined that idea. Everyone is making a big deal out of Justin switching to Nike gear. He's apparently one of the few who actually IMPROVES after doing that! But he made tons of putts and if you have a keen eye, his putter is a TITLEIST.

As a Ben Hogan fan, it is strange to see the swoosh on Justin's hat.

Speaking of Nike...David Duval was 32 over after 4 rounds??? I swear I could beat him right now.

    It's unfortunate Duval's head isn't 100% focused on his game. I can see his swing mechanics are doing ok, but poor decisions on shot selections and really focusing on the greens is just killing him. I don't think he'll ever regain his once dominant days when he was #1 prior to Tiger, but I think he can still put himself in position to take a few top 10's this season.

    I volunteer for The International @ Castle Pines CC in Castle Rock, CO. I work the PGA Shot Link on the #8 1st position fairway (driving area). This is a long Par 5, up hill, dog leg right, even after a hefty 320 drive, you are unable to see the pin unless it's playing on the very front of the green. Anyway, Duval hit his shot on the right side of the fairway, no chance in hell to make it on in 2, unless you can fade your 3-wood 280 yards over pine trees that stand 60+ ft tall. But he tried it, lost his ball in the woods and ended up double-bog the hole. He should have layed up, but that's his mind set, just doesn't have the focus!
