Doral Gets Attacked, Owned

Even with its Augusta-like undulating greens, deep rough and water on nearly every hole, lots of low scores were posted at the Doral’s famed Blue Monster on Thursday for the WGC-CA Championship.

The most impressive round certainly belonged to Phil Mickelson, who overcame a double-bogey 6 on the 3rd hole, only to card 8 more birdies (he also birdied hole #1) for a 7-under 65. Joining him at the top of the leaderboard are Retief Goosen, Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand and our perennial favorite/man-crush, Jeev Milkha Singh.

Singh, who was the Asian Tour’s Order of Merit winner for 2008, relied on his smooth swing and trusted his putter en route to his first round score of 65. His 1.53 putts/GIR is tied for a tournament best right now and he will need to maintain that of accuracy once he makes the trip to Augusta for the Masters.

And for those that need their Tiger news (you friggin' brown-noses), he’s at 1-under and tied for 40th. Lucky for him, there’s no cut after 36 holes.

Don't hate Tiger because he has helped to keep the interest in golf. Remember this started with Arnold Palmer....maybe even before. The playing field seems to be more level now thanks to the new young players from all over the globe.
