Phil wins 2nd in a row at Pebble

Phil didn't play his best round today, but he had a hell of a cushion. He didn't need to play his best round to win. Mike Weir (my neighbor!) played an excellent round and put a little pressure on Phil. But Phil was so far ahead it just wasn't enough for Weirsy.

I don't know if it is his coaching (short game: Dave Pelz, long game: Rick Smith), his equipment or finally his mental maturity that is making the difference. Perhaps a combination of all three. But Phil is scarrrry good right now.

It's only February and the golf season is very interesting already. Tiger and Vijay already have victories. Where are all those "young guns" now? The big boys are in charge.

    A lot of times, Phil was playing very well, just didn't get a couple of the bounces or the rolls on greens. Like in this final round, sure wasn't his best round, but he missed quite a few close birdie putts. Even some of his wayward drives ended up in great position. I think luck is starting to roll his way and he's in a comfortable groove, playing smart golf right now.
