2月19日ロサンゼルス市リビエラゴルフ場で開催された「ノーザントラストゴルフトーナメント」最終日、石川遼君をマジカで観戦しました。最短では１ｍ先を2度も通り、手を伸ばせば、届きそうでした。。 "Ryo Ishikawa" participated "Northern Trust Golf Tournament" held at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles. I went to watch the final day on Feb 19, 2012. Ryo Ishikawa passed by just 3 feet away a few times. I almost extended my arm and hand to touch him.
よく雨にたたられる大会ですが、今年は雨が降ったのは水曜日だけ、木曜日から日曜は快晴。最終日、海からの風が少しありましたが、いいゴルフ日和でした。 It often rains during this golf tournament, but this year it only rained on Wednesday. It was clear with blue sky from Thursday to Sunday, although sea breeze was quite strong on Sunday.
Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley gave up their lead to Bill Haas at the end of the 9th Hole on Sunday. Haas shot 3-under through 10 holes to take the lead, but back-to-back bogies on holes 12 and 13 knocked him from the top. Five players are tied in fourth place, led by a hard-charging Sergio Garcia who finished at 7-under for the day and 5-under for the tournament.
At the end of 18th Hole, 3 players, Mickelson, Bradley, and Haas finished tied, and the sudden death play-off began from the 18th Hole.
On the second playoff hole, the Number 10th, Mickelson landed in the rough to the right while Bradley landed a few feet further up in a bunker. Haas hit into the trees to the left of the hole, but the ball luckily rolled through with hitting any obstructions. All three players landed roughly 30 yards from the hole.
Bradley hit the best shot by far on his second shot, putting the ball just off the green, roughly 12 feet from the hole. Haas laid up to about 40 feet from the pin on the green on his second shot, while Mickelson's ball rolled off into a bunker on the other side of the pin.
Bradley had the leg up, but Haas bombed his 40 feet long birdie putt into the cup. Bradley's putt to tie barely glided by the lip of the hole, giving a Haas a victory.
帰りにウエストＬＡの「秀寿司」でにぎり寿司セットを食べました。$12.50 連日お寿司を食べてる私です。。。 ここは30年の老舗です。ネタが大きく、現金商売。 On my way home, I had "Nigiri Sushi Set" at "Hide Sushi" in West LA. It's $12.50. I've been eating sushi often these days. Hide Sushi was established 30 years ago. Sushi pieces are big. Cash only.
