Lots of "What Ifs" at Soggy Riviera

The Nissan Open finished this afternoon at drenched Riviera Country Club with Adam Scott beating Chad Campbell in a sudden death playoff. Because of the hard rain, the tournament was cut to 36 holes, the first time this has occurred on Tour in nine years. Scott beat Campbell with a par on the first hole of the playoff. Even though Scott took home $864,000 for the effort, I'm sure it was a bittersweet victory for him. I wonder if Adam has a few "what ifs" on his mind -- like what would have happened if they were able to play the final 36. Either way, he picked up a nice check and moved up to number seven in the Official World Rankings.

The person who has to be "what iffing" the most is Colin Montgomerie; he shot a sweet 64 to move into contention in the second round. For someone who won seven straight Order of Merits in the nineties, he's never won on U.S. soil. This was his best chance in a long time. Maybe this week will be a drier affair at La Costa. Unfortunately for Monty, he won't be playing.
