Yani: Still smiling

I’m not sure where to start, but how about that finish at the LPGA’s first major of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship!? You know, just when I thought we were finally going to have a relatively calm and boring (in a good way) Sunday, mayhem broke loose.

What the…PHIL! Those were my first words when I checked the leaderboard yesterday afternoon. Apparently, Phil is rounding into Masters form just as planned in Houston. He caught on fire and shot a nine-under 63 to tie the course record at Redstone. Even if he has a so-so day in the final round, that’s gotta give him an extra confidence boost heading into Augusta…tomorrow.

Brittany Lincicome and Stacy Lewis didn’t let the sweltering heat in the desert impact their games on Thursday afternoon during the first round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Playing in the afternoon wave when temperatures reached above 100 degrees, Lincicome and Lewis shot a pair of excellent six-under 66s to tie for the lead at the LPGA’s first major.

Nice legs...I mean, swing.

Coming off her first LPGA victory at last week’s Kia Classic, Sandra Gal teed it up at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first major of the season, and basically picked up right where she finished four days ago. Apparently the adrenaline and extra media requests that go along with winning haven’t affected Gal. At least yet. The German, among those that teed off in the morning wave, held the lead for part of the day, firing a five-under 67 at Mission Hills. She’s tied for third after one round.
