PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.
— Aaron Baddeley had just finished stretching when the horn
sounded at 1:02 p.m. He hadn't even hit a practice shot. So, for
the next four hours he hung out in the locker room. He ate. He
played a little ping pong. And when he finally got off the tee? He
birdied the first two holes, hitting his approach at the first to
two feet and making a six footer at the second, to jump onto the
leader board. He gave two back at the fourth and fifth holes, but
left the course when play was called Saturday just four shots off
the lead. With 29 holes to go. "I feel good about my game,'' he
said. "The long days have always been an advantage for me. I work
hard at my fitness.''
