Sergio Garcia Tries To Break The Duck

Despite Tiger Woods being awarded the British Open title yesterday afternoon by Pat Forde, the rest of the field decided to show up and play today anyway. And Tiger still does have the lead, but just by a stroke. Sergio Garcia shot a course record-tying 65 today to get himself to within 1 of Tiger. The trend this weekend seems to be for Spaniards to finish second to Americans.


So Tiger's at -13, and just behind him at -12 are Sergio, Chris DiMarco, and Ernie Els. Jim Furyk and Angel Cabrera are two back at -11. My favorite, S.K. Ho, is at -6. Tiger wasn't able to put together that great of a round today, three-putting on three seperate occasions on the back nine. He finished with at -1 on the day after a birdie on 18.

Here's a handy guide from The Wade Blogs to some of the British golf slang you may hear during the telecast. It'll also help explain the headline there. Coverage starts at 6 a.m. tomorrow morning on TNT, so don't go out tonight.
