I walked nine holes this morning with the defending US Open Champ and the bubbly one.
Christina and Cristie were minus one for the first five holes. Of the two, Cristie’s round was smoother. She made a birde on two, and hit all greens but #1. Christina missed a short birdie putt on three. Her drive on the fourth found a fairway bunker but Christina knocked her second shot to two feet. Christina made the putt a few minutes to later to go to minus one.
It was at the 6th hole that both players began to unravel. Cristie after hitting the par four in two, three putted. Christina hit too much club, and went over the green on her approach. Her chip came up short and Christina missed a ten footer for par.
On seven both Christie and Christina hit their tee shots in the water. Both finishing the hole with double bogeys.
Number seven I think is the most unrecognized hole on the course. Whereas the 17th waterfall hole gets the attention, I think seven plays equally difficult or close to it. Look at these scores on seven today.

Two double bogeys, two triple bogeys, and one quad. When you add in the other players score, the par 3 7th played at an average of 4.75 strokes. Ouch.
With nine holes to go, Lorena Ochoa looks to be in command. -5 for the day and five shots up on her closest pursuers.
