Geoff Ogilvy Wins 2008 WGC-CA Championship 2008

The video is of Geoff Oglivy who chips in for par on #13 at Doral and goes on to win the WGC-CA Championship by one shot over Retief Goosen, Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk and officially stopping Tiger Woods winning streak. Really nice to see Ogilvy win again after starting the season slow with 3 missed cuts. He shook off the rust after being Mr. Mom for a while to win again.

Talking about the chip in:

"It's a weird kind of a lie," Ogilvy said. "It would be easier if it was just grass everywhere because you know you have to swing hard at it. This one looked like I could hit the ball first or not. I obviously didn't read the lie very well the first chip, and then the second chip was traveling. I guess that's why you want to hit it straight."

"It was probably not that lucky to hit the flag, but it was very lucky to go in," Ogilvy said. "You quite often see guys hit chips like that that slam into the pin and stop a foot away or something. That's quite a common occurrence, but for it to go in is pretty fortunate."
