FedEx Cup – Steve Stricker at the top of the leaderboard

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

Steve Stricker posted a nice 7-under 64 today to finish at 10-under overall.

In the meanwhile, one of my predictions Anthony Kim shot a 4-under to finish 5-under overall.

I think there’s still too much room for many others to top Steve Stricker over the next 2 days and I think the player must have proved himself before to win.

It will be very interesting over the next two days to see who wins the last PGA tournament of the year.

My bet still goes to Anthony Kim, I hope he wins. :( )

2008 PGA Championship – Tiger’s Ingredients to Success

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Even though Tiger Woods may not be playing in the PGA Championships this year due to his knee injury, he is clearly showing everyone the secret to winning a PGA Championship.

It’s so obvious that we cannot see it but the black nike hat and the red nike shirt are both part of Tiger believe in religiously.

For this year’s champion, let’s hope it’s someone who has been winning consistently so far as I have highhopes for some tour pros.

Here’s all the important internet links you will need this weekend starting tomorrow for the 2008 PGA Championship coverage:

World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational This Weekend

Monday, July 28th, 2008

With the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational coming up this week, it will be exciting to watch as the top players in the world battle it out.  Although Tiger Woods won’t be there, we will get to see some action by the youngster like Chev Reavie, Anthony Kim, and of course older folks like Kenny Perry.

Clearly, there’s a lot more room for others to win that there’s no more Tiger Woods at least until some time next year.

With Tiger taking majority of wins on the PGA Tour during a typical PGA Tour year, this year’s going to be a great chance for anyone else to take advantage and finish at the top on Sunday.

Urban Golf – Make your Streets a Golf Course!

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Here’s a funny site that explains the definitions and how to play “urban golf”.

It sounds like a lot of fun, maybe it will pick up some speed among the urbanists.

Remember, if you have a job that allows you to sit around a lot and you have plenty of space, I recommend you do it and hit that ball really far.

Johnny Miller – “looks like the guy who cleans Tiger’s swimming pool.”

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

Ooops, looks like Johnny Miller got in trouble for saying that Rocco Mediate looks like the guy who cleans Tiger’s swimming pool.

I was watching the whole thing and I don’t think it was meant to be rude, Johnny was actually rooting for Rocco Mediate and I was about to shoot the TV because of that.

Well, Johnny was wrong though, Rocco doesn’t clean anyone’s swimming pool, maybe just his clubs.

As Mediate held a one stroke lead over Tiger during the fourth round last Sunday, Miller said he “looks like the guy who cleans Tiger’s swimming pool.” He also said, “Guys with the name ‘Rocco’ don’t get on the trophy, do they?”
