We have made it to another Sunday, the dead weight has been cut and it’s time to see who is going to make a run and who is not. The last few weeks, we have been spared the Sunday drama that can add little excitement to our Sundays that fall between the end of football season and the start of baseball season. As nice as Phil Mickelson’s wire to wire victory was last weekend, it wasn’t very exciting. This Sunday at Pebble Beach could get crazy. Here are a few things to keep an eye on early in the final round.
Hunter Mahan is making a run. Mahan started the day at four under par through seven holes, after birdies on the par five 2nd and par four 4th holes and an eagle on the par five 6th hole. Mahan has himself back in the mix and is looking to rebound from a third round 73, which may prove to be too costly in getting back into the race atop the leaderboard.
Ted Potter, Jr is another player who is looking to rebound after a tough third round. Potter also shot a third round 73 that seemed to have knocked him out of contention. Not so fast, Potter started the final round by dropping birdies on four of his first six holes and has himself positioned to make a run.
James Hahn and Brandt Snedeker entered Sunday tied for the lead and neither appears all that interested in giving it up in the early going. Hahn birdied the par five 2nd hold and Snedeker eagled the same hole, giving Brandt the early lead back after two holes.
I have a feeling this Sunday is going to be fun to watch. Will it get Humana Challenge crazy? Only time will tell. With football season over, pitchers and catchers just reporting and the Friends marathon about to end, you Sunday excitement is going to be found at Pebble Beach, where with the slippery rocks on 18, anything can happen.
