Speed bumps at Solheim Cup
Saturday, August 22, 2009
SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – More speed bumps – er, make that slow-play bumps – here on Day 2 of the Solheim Cup. With morning four-balls dragging well past five-and-a-half hours, here’s the awkward situation we are in:
The first match of the afternoon foursomes is already on the fourth hole (Europe leads, 2 up), yet none of the other three can begin. Why? Because players are still involved in the morning four-ball.
The silliest situation involves Kristy McPherson. She was scheduled to go out in the second afternoon match (at 2 p.m.), yet here it is 2:25 and she is on the 17th hole of her morning four-ball.
Hope she’s OK with those cheese crackers and a water for a lunch on the run.
