Volume Seventy-Three

Aug. 28, 2006     By     Comments (0)

Tiger leads us to Jack, which leads us to Valhalla and the U.S. Amateur. Plus Deutsche Bank, Two Holes-in-One, and those pesky Europeans.

Another week, another Tiger Woods win. I feel like the guy in the movie Groundhog Day. I wake to see Tiger Woods in the lead, and then I sit in front of the television on Sunday and watch him win.

When will the madness ever end?

Hole 1: Tiger Woods is Unstoppable
Four wins in four consecutive starts. That is the only stat you need to know about Tiger Woods' win at the Bridgestone Invitational. The guy makes me sick sometimes. [Link]

Hole 2: Getting to know: Lorena Ochoa
Who knew LPGA golfer Lorena Ochoa had a website? I have to say, for a woman that just shot 24-under par in the Wendy's Championship, her website is up to the standard.[Link]

Hole 3: Ramsay Makes History
Never in the 108 years of the United State Amateur had a Scottish born player hoisted the trophy. Richie Ramsay changed that on Sunday. [Link]

Hole 4: European Ryder Cup Team
Well the Ryder Cup team is officially set after this weekend. If you're not too familiar with the members of the team, this list will give you an idea of who you will be pulling for against the European team. [Link]

Hole 5: Double Holes-in-One
And you thought that Yusaku Mizayto was something special after he aced two par-3's at the Reno -Tahoe Open. Funny thing is he isn't the first tour pro to perform the feat. [Link]

Hole 6: Valhalla Ready For a Facelift
Jack Nicklaus is set to give the 2008 Ryder Cup venue a new look before the Cup returns to American soil. [Link]

Hole 7: Deutsche Bank Open is On Deck
In case you didn't know, the next tournament on the PGA Tour is the Deutsche Bank Open in Boston, MA. I mention this because a lot of people forget that next to the Ryder Cup, the rest of the tour season is a relative unknown. [Link]

Hole 8: Tiger Woods Makes Television Better
CBS can thank Tiger (and the weather) for the 22 percent increase in television ratings from the 2005 PGA Championship to the 2006 PGA Championship. If that isn't a nice increase, then I don't know what is. [Link]

Hole 9: Tiger versus Jack
The debate is probably at the highest peak right now. If you can't get enough of it, then I suggest you check out the great stats that have been compiled. [Link]
