The Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge is an engaging event without the frazzled nerves. Sit back, relax and watch the best golfers from all three tours shoot the breeze and have fun! And it’s all for a good cause.
Although the Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge has already been played and its outcome determined, it’s still worthy of some commentary. It’s the only tournament of the year which features golfers from each of the big three tours going head-to-head to determine which tour reigns supreme.

Mark Hensby can’t keep his mouth shut: this week, he’s criticizing Greg Norman. To Hensby I have but one thing to say: put up or shut up.
Mark Hensby isn’t one to keep his mouth shut. First he ran his mouth about Michelle Wie, saying “I don’t think a 15-year-old girl who’s done nothing at all should get a sponsor’s invitation to a PGA Tour event.” A lot of articles start the same way this one does, “Australian golfer Mark Hensby has slammed (fill in the blank).”
This week, the tiny Australian’s target is none other than the gigantic Greg Norman. Norman’s fault, which Hensby can’t resist pointing out? The Great White Shark, recently voted Australia’s golfer of the century, apparently doesn’t do enough to support Australian golf.

A hobbled Tiger Woods won his second straight Dunlop Phoenix Open in Japan, but in dramatic fashion as it took him four playoff holes.
David Duval – yes, the very same David Duval I implored to just go home earlier this year before he missed all but one cut on the 2005 PGA Tour, was the first-round leader with a 64. After three days, he was within two shots of the lead. But in the end, it was the same old story: Tiger Woods the winner, Duval, a final-round 75.
Tiger Woods didn’t do it easily, though. He was taken to the limit by Japan’s Kaname Yokoo before birdieing the fourth playoff hole to defend his title in the $1.7M event. Woods reached the par-5 18th, the fourth playoff hole, and two-putted for the birdie while Yokoo missed a 12-footer to extend the match. On the first playoff hole, Woods saved a par but twisted his ankle on his tee shot. He limped through the remaining playoff holes, but managed to birdie all three of them.

Arnold Palmer’s Victoria Clube de Golf is the host for the final World Golf Championship event of the season.
The 2005 PGA Tour season may be over, but there is still good golf being played around the globe. The final World Golf Championship event of the season takes place this week in Portugal. Two-man teams from 24 different countries will be battling it out for their respective country’s bragging rights.
The defending champion and 18 other countries are determined by the world rankings, while the other five teams have to win a competition to earn their spot into the field. The format for the event is very simple. The golfers will start off playing four-ball in Thursday’s opening round, followed by foursomes on Friday. They will go back to four-ball on Saturday and finish the event with foursomes on Sunday.

Tiger Woods breathed down David Howell’s neck all weekend at the inaugural HSBC Champions Tournament in Shanghai, but Woods never made the move that everyone thought was inevitable.
Tiger Woods three-putted for bogey from 15 feet on the fifth hole while Englishman David Howell birdied from four feet, a two-shot swing that set the tone for the final round of the HSBC Tournament of Champions as Tiger fell four shots back after starting the day one back. After that, the Englishman marched to victory in the $5 million all-star event that also served as the opener of the 2006 European Tour season.

Tiger Woods will lead the United States team against Vijay Singh and his International allies.
The Presidents Cup is often overlooked by the Ryder Cup, but that don’t mean it’s not a great event in its own right. The Presidents Cup has only been in existence a little over a decade, and it has already given the fans many great memories. The United States team has dominated this event for the most part, winning three out of the five competitions.
The International side’s only victory came in 1998 at Royal Melbourne in Australia. The International team defeated the United States by nine points in one of the most lopsided wins in this event’s short history. The United States bounced back in 2000, however, as they defeated their International opponents by eleven points!

Morgan Pressel wins her first U.S. Women’s Amateur title. Annika Sorenstam claims victory at a self-sponsored tournament in her native Sweden.
Morgan Pressel played two grueling rounds of golf today to win her first U.S. Women’s Amateur title. The first round was played under gloomy skies and over soggy fairways. The afternoon was even worse as storms threatened and rain soaked the golfers. It didn’t even faze Morgan Pressel.
Completely dominating the other 155 golfers during the Amateur, Morgan showed that she was second best to no one this time and was considered to be the favorite at this event. In June, Pressel came in runner-up at the U.S. Women’s Open after being tied for the lead when Birdie Kim sunk an unbelievable bunker shot. Probably a more hurtful defeat occured at the U.S. Girls’ Junior Amateur last month when her opponent chipped in to win from about 40 feet.
