Who are you, Empire Lakes, and what have you done with California?

Looks like Chris Anderson, the surprise first-day leader and West Covina native, is going to finish tied for 9th place. He shot a 2-over today in weather that made me question if I was even in California anymore. I asked Chris Baryla, who could finish tied for first place at 9-under with another Canadian, Jon Mills, if it’s any coincidence that a pair of Canucks knocked off a SoCal dude in such miserable weather: “Probably not.”
