Notables include Hunter Mahan, who shot an incredible 62 today to finish before the final groups at 12 under.
As I did predicted during the 3rd round of the AT&T National, this tournament really came down to Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim. And I did say Tiger probably will have an edge over the last finishing holes, where he did make birdies to gain lead in the tournament.
My prediction for AT&T National earlier today also became true, as Tiger had an edge over the last couple holes of “pressure” golf. I think Anthony Kim has come a long ways, especially during the 9-month period that Tiger was going through his knee surgery but I think he still has a long ways to go before beating Tiger head-to-head.
Of course, don’t forget Hunter Mahan, he’s been shooting awfully low scores at many tournaments. I think every time I turn on my TV, Hunter Mahan is shooting a 62 or 63. I am sure he will win many tournaments.
One thing is for sure, Tiger Woods is certainly back after winning 3 tournaments already this year. It will be harder to beat him as Tiger plays more tournaments and I think he’s still not 100%, something seriously to worry about for other PGA Tour players.
I am sure Anthony Kim will beat Tiger Woods in stroke play one day though. When that day comes, Tiger will have a good challenger to compete with.
Overall, I think everyone did a great job here, there’s a lot of veterans who are at the AT&T National this week, something I haven’t seen before. Interesting to note that people were applauding for a war hero who was on his wheelchair as the final group walked up the 18th hole.
Congrats to Tiger Woods on his comeback 2009 and winning the 2009 AT&T National!
