Another 2nd. This bridesmaid is gonna find a good movie to watch now. See you next week
HONG KONG OPEN
WOW! If you missed the Hong Kong Open this morning - you missed the best head to head round played all year on any tour. Lucas Bjerregaard went toe to toe with Justin Rose. Rose went bogie free and needed 2 Eagles just to keep up with Bjerregaards near perfect 7 Under. This guy was leading a tourney a not too long ago and shot a final day 89! It's taken a while for him to recover. Lets hope he can hang on - I found him capping this event and we have him $20 at 40-1 $820 on the line in the early morning on Golf Channel.
On the Final Day - Justin Rose started strong taking an early 1 shot lead.
Bjerregaard caught him. Then Rose blinked, a lip out dropped him to (-15). Bjerregaard attacked and flew by him with a 2 shot lead to (-17)
On 14 Bjerregaard put one in the trees. A decent recovery shot left him with about a 4 footer for Bogey. He missed and before you know it - Justin Rose had a 2 shot lead going into 18.
On the Par 4 18th - Bjerregaard could have pulled driver but did not - he was on the green in 2 but with a 50 ft birdie put. Rose had 20 ft for his birdie and left it 10 feet short. Rose would Bogey and win by 1. A Birdie on 18 would have forced a Playoff and potentially a Hollywood ending to this Cinderella story.
With a $20 ticket on Bjerregaard that would have paid $800 at 40-1 - I was disappointed. But I got my monies worth. What a thrill and what great golf - Best I've seen all year. Lucas played an amazing tournament as did Rose. 1 bad shot for Lucas in 2 days cost him everything. Pretty brutal price to pay. However, I believe he has a bright future ahead and we will stay on this kid.
You're Back Lucas! Keep the Faith! I am and will be buying your stock the next time your name is on the bet sheets in Vegas.
