No easy lead for Annika
By wire services
Published November 20, 2005
WEST PALM BEACH - Annika Sorenstam had a two-shot lead that she thought should have been more as she stood in the rough on the 18th hole Saturday in the ADT Championship, staring at a difficult lie with the ball below her feet and a big water hazard next to the green.
This had not been the best of days. She wanted to make sure it didn't get worse. "This was too dangerous," she said.
Sorenstam laid up and made bogey on the closing hole for 2-over 74 that cut another stroke off her lead and ended a streak of nine consecutive rounds at par or better at Trump International.
The good news? She still had the lead by one shot over Marisa Baena and Liselotte Neumann heading into today's final round of the year.
"She didn't birdie the last hole," said Neumann, who shot 71. " ... Unfortunately, that probably only gets her more fired up for tomorrow. That's usually how it works when she doesn't have a good day."
Baena can't believe she has a chance after an unbelievable round. She was tied for 20th when the third round began in 20 mph gusts, and after birdies each of the final seven holes, wound up tied for second with 6-under 66, the day's only round in the 60s.
Sorenstam was at 3-under 213, one of five players under par.
Catriona Matthew had 70 and was at 1-under 215, along with Hee-Won Han (74).
Tiger takes lead over Furyk, Duval in Japan
MIYAZAKI, Japan - After trailing by a stroke in each of the first two rounds of the Dunlop Phoenix, Tiger Woods shot 2-under 68 for a one-stroke lead over Jim Furyk. Woods was at 10-under 200, and Furyk shot 70 for 201. David Duval, whose last victory came at this event in 2001, shot 71 and was at 203.
Woods entered the final round of last year's tournament with a 10-stroke lead and shot 67 to finish eight strokes ahead of Ryoken Kawagishi.
WORLD CUP: Wales is in position to win at the expense of rival England at Vilamoura, Portugal. Bradley Dredge teamed with Stephen Dodd for 11-under 61 in the day's better-ball format for a two-stroke lead over defending champion England and Sweden. David Howell and Luke Donald of England and the Swedish team of Henrik Stenson and Niclas Fasth were tied after rounds of 63 for 25-under 191. Raphael Jacquelin and Thomas Levet of France also carded 61 to trail by five. Denmark shot 63 and was six off the lead. Americans Zach Johnson and Stewart Cink had 67 to tie for 17th with Australia and Mexico.
CHAMPIONS TOUR: Kirk Hanefeld, a club pro from Acton, Mass., shot 5-under 67 for a one-stroke lead after the fourth of six rounds at the National Qualifying Tournament at Beaumont, Calif. Hanefeld had 3-under 285 total. Scott Masingill (68) was second, and former major-league pitcher Rick Rhoden (66) was two back.
