Jeff Overton Is Making it an Uphill Climb for Wie
I'm sure at some point today we'll get to the Bridgestone Invitational, but it's Michelle Wie's world and we're just trying to make a couple of birdies in it.
Jeff Overton...excuse me, the Dominant Jeff Overton...fired a seven-under 65 to hold the lead in the clubhouse and nearly 40 golfers are under par so far in the Reno-Tahoe Open.
Good news for Wie though. She'd have to really struggle to finish in last place at this event. Some guy named Lance Ten Broeck (don't ask, I have no idea) posted a 16-over 88 that actually included back-to-back birdies at one point in the round. Wie would have to do something really stupid like not sign her scorecard or something to finish behind this guy.
