Tiger Woods wins another golf tournament, Thomas Bjorn lashes out at European Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam for not picking him, and Annika Sorenstam fires a final-round 62 to capture another LPGA event.
I swear professional golf never gets old or boring!
Hole 1: The Drive to Five
Tiger Woods isn’t kidding around anymore after winning his fifth tournament in a row. You have to wonder when he’s going to use his extra gear again like he did Monday, because when he does use that extra gear, there isn’t a single person on the planet that could beat him at their best. The guy is a sick athlete. [Link]
Hole 2: Bjorn Blunder
The Ryder Cup took another twist this week after European star Thomas Bjorn ripped Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam for snubbing him from this year’s squad. Now I don’t know about you, but I wish we could hear more stories like this from the American side. Maybe I like the confrontation between captain and potential player a little too much. [Link]
Hole 3: Woosnam Picks from the Heart
European Ryder Cup captain Ian Woosnam didn’t make his two captains picks for the upcoming competition against the United States using his mind. Instead, the guy went out and made two picks from his heart in Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood. The funny thing is that both picks will play huge roles on the squad. [Link]
Hole 4: Ten Years of Tiger
I have seen a lot of websites covering Tiger Woods and his recent streak of wins on Tour, as well as coverage of his 10th anniversary on the PGA Tour. However, the coverage ESPN.com is doing right now on Woods’ 10 years on the PGA Tour is brilliant and worth a read. [Link]
Hole 5: The Snake Fits
King Cobra is getting really serious about their club fitting system. Not only that, they now have a video of what their current club fitting really consists of. You can say so long to buying stock clubs off the rack every time you go to the golf shop. [Link]
Hole 6: Breaking Down the College Ranks
The next Tiger Woods could be lurking in the college ranks; and with the college golf season getting underway, this is the perfect time to take a look at the pre-season Top 50 collegiate golfers in the nation. The list is a bit biased, but it gives you a great idea of who to watch for in the upcoming year. [Link]
Hole 7: Can You Handle the Pressure?
I know this is a commercial for EA Sports golf game, Tiger Woods 2006. However, the commercial is probably true to form if you got the chance to play with Mr. Woods himself. [Link]
Hole 8: Phil the Putter
Ever wonder what Phil Mickelson does to perfect his putting? Now you know what the drill really looks like. Big props to the guy who got the video and close-ups of the putter itself. [Link]
Hole 9: Annika One-Ups Tiger
Tiger may have fired a final round 63 on Monday, but Annika Sorenstam did him one better with a final round 62 to capture the State Farm Classic. The woman is an amazing talent. [Link]
