Earthquake hits Kraft Nabisco Championship
RANCHO MIRAGE, CALIF.- In a scary moment, the California desert was rocked by a 30-second earthquake roughly 40 minutes after the Kraft Nabisco Championship ended. As winner Yani Tseng was giving her post-round interview in the media center, the ground began to move and mild panic spread among the press corps.
The quake, which we just found out measured 7.2 on the Richter scale at its epicenter 90 miles from here in Mexicala, Mexico, was severe -- or so I'm told. For me, it was a lifetime first; I was too busy looking for the nearest exit to contemplate the magnitude of the rumblings.
