Rory McIlroy is lighting it up early. It's hard to believe he hasn't won on the European Tour in 2010, but this might be the week. I'll probably try to catch some of this tournament, especially with the Dubai World Championship next week.

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

Just thought I'd tell you about the biggest event in Japan, happening this week:


Dunlop Phoenix Tournament
$2,500,000
Field Includes:
Edoardo Molinari, Tom Watson, Robert Allenby, Robert Karlsson, Jaco Van Zyl, Thorbjorn Olesen, Kang-kyung Nam, Ryo Ishikawa, Yuta Ikeda, Kyung-tae Kim, Shingo Katayama, Brendan Jones, Hiroyuki Fujita, Toru Tanichu, Tetsuji Hiratsuka.
Defending: Edoardo Molinari

This is billed as the Japan's 'international tour' event, and features usually 8 international invites each year. Alvaro Quiros withdrew before the tournament with back pain. :(

Molinari saw this as his big 'breakthrough' win last season, his first major win, and is back to defend.

I bet most of you don't know this, but past champions include:
Hubert Green, Graham Marsh, Seve Ballesteros, Tom Watson, Lary Mize, Ernie Els, Lee Westwood, David Duval, Thomas Bjorn, Padraig Harrington, Ian Poulter, AND TIGER WOODS (2004, 2005)

    • History is written by the winners. Truth should always prevail.   
    • I don't know when I said we shouldn't change anything.  We shouldn't re write history, that is all I said.  So, yes, make changes, but don't forget why the changes were made.   People should be able to see/read history so they can understand why the change was made. I just don't agree with ALL the changes.  Some yes, some no.  Some I think is silly.  
    • On days when I'm hitting my driver well this is my play too. Otherwise I'll usually hit 4i a tad left of the aim point denoted by the white lines on the left fairway. Though honestly I set the bar of "playing driver well" a little low and block a driver into the water too often 😬
    • I agree with your message, as I thought the same in response; however, I don’t agree with attacking the person, but ideas or statements that he holds are fair game in my eyes. Not trying to be a mod, so don’t “get it twisted,” as young ones say; just expressing my opinion of partial agreement. 
    • Meh. They could have had a bit more fun with it. I would have preferred the "Cleveland River Fire" to honor when the Cuyahoga River actually caught fire. 12 times.
