Robert Karlsson won the Qatar Masters today and Ben Crane won the Farmers Insurance Open. I didn't see the final round of the Qatar Masters, but I was happy to find out that Alvaro Quiros finished second.
I did watch the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. Ben Crane kept it interesting until the very end. I really enjoyed the way he seemed to enjoy the final round. He would produce some sheepish grins when he missed short putts, fitting as he made some really, really long putts today too. Michael Sim was there with a chance to win as well. He will be criticized for his decision to lay up on 18. But you know what, I think it isn't about strategy, but execution. The lay up plan was a good one, he just didn't execute the shots the way he needed to.
But the big news is how that controversial Ping wedge gave Phil that unfair advantage. Gee whiz, I don't know if he could have managed to finish 19th without it. Yes, there's a lot of sarcasm there.
