Weekend Review - Pebble/SBS Open

Dustin Johnson wins a rain-shortened AT&T, and Michelle Wie shoots 73 in the final round to miss out on her first LPGA victory at the SBS Open.

A very anti-climatic end to the weekend to be sure. It's always a drag when weather hits Pebble and tournament organizers need to cut the event short, but it's necessary because the players need to get on the road and travel to their next stop.

One year they postponed the final round a few months and Phil Mickleson showed up and claimed the title, but I'm sure it was weird to get to Pebble on some random Monday to finish one round of golf. Needless to say, this route hasn't been taken since.


Michelle Wie will get her first win - maybe this week, maybe next. It's inevitable. She's too good. Scary good, actually. She just needs the focus and the steely resolve of a Lorena Ochoa or Annika Sorenstam. And, probably, she needs to make a few more putts. Don't we all.
