“It ain't over until it's over,” Yogi Berra famously said.
I was reminded of this Yogiism again yesterday as I turned off the Ginn Tribute late in the final round. Lorena Ochoa, the world's No. 1 lady golfer, was cruising to another victory with three holes to play.
I had watched my Sunday afternoon quota of golf and headed into the kitchen to rustle up some dinner for the kiddos.
Later, I was shocked to learn Nicole Castrale won in a one-hole playoff.
Lorena bogeyed two of the last three holes and then hit her drive in a marsh on the playoff hole. Her record is 0-4 in playoffs. She must be smarting from giving one away.
“I need to learn to win in the tough ones. For sure I need to improve my playoff percentages,” she told the Associated Press.
