Good day from The Sand Trap and Hittin’ the Links. I don’t mean to gloat but we had glorious weekend weather here. Spring fever is now in full swing. Probably just in time for the next snow storm. Golf season cannot get here fast enough.
Wow, what a weekend of golf. The Accenture Match Play championship delivered the goods, beautiful golf course, great golf, what else could you want? And that Tiger guy, he’s pretty good isn’t he?
In this edition, we take a couple of looks at the Accenture Match Play, check in on the other PGA Tour event south of the border, and also take notice of the rest of the professional tours around the world. In addition, we see who is our next Presidents Cup captain, take a peak at Michelle Wie’s opening weekend, take a glimpse at the state of golf in Cuba, and investigate why Americans are giving up our great game.
