There are two things that make a golf tournament, dare I say, ridiculous: constant, gusting wind and a putting contest.
Chad Collins chipped in for eagle on the par-5 second hole Saturday to top the Puerto Rico Open leaderboard at 9 under before second-round play was suspended because of darkness in the rain-delayed PGA Tour event.
Martin Kaymer still has occasional pain in his left foot, thanks to all the hardware surgeons used to put it back together after a go-cart accident last summer.
Charl Schwartzel put up a 5-under 67 Saturday to catch Ernie Els entering the final round of the CA Championship. The pair of South Africans are 12 under at the Blue Monster, with Padraig Harrington one shot back.

When I got to Southwood Golf Club for Round 2 of the Seminole Intercollegiate, I had to double check the tee sheet. I could have sworn Georgia was not in the field – and I was right – so you can imagine why two people decked out in UGA gear and walking and talking to the team caught my attention.
Four-time champion Karrie Webb shot a bogey-free 3-under 70 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead in the Women’s Australian Open.
Ernie Els no longer is eligible for the award of logging the most miles before getting to Doral.
