ADT Championship notes

*- Christina Kim made a double bogey five on the seventh hole Sunday. When asked about the hole after the round, Christina couldn’t remember what happened.

I was present when Christina slammed her club in the bag after her tee shot found the drink at that dangerous par 3. Golfers are people too, they rather forget their failures.

*- The Sarah Lee double mystery is solved. I spoke to Sarah’s father after the round.

Sarah who was born in London England and lived there for the first three and a half years of her life and is really named Sarah. That’s her official/legal name.

Today was a rough day for Sarah. She can burn up a course like few others on the LPGA Tour. Sarah will find the winner’s circle one day.

*- Scoring varied widely in the ADT’s final round. To have players spread out 16 shots from top to bottom is hardly unusual for a professional golf event. Except when there were so few players to start with. Who would have expected Karrie Webb to shoot a final round 84?

*- Several small tweaks to the ADT’s format may occur before next year’s event. $50,000 to the golfer who shoots the low round every day and an automatic invite back to the winner.

Good ideas though I seriously doubt Lorena will need the invite.

*- Natalie Gulbis is the ADT’s good luck charm. In 2006, she played with Julieta Granada in the final round, this year with Ochoa.

Expect a tug of war over who gets Natalie for a playing partner if she qualifies to the final eight again in 2008.
