AT&T National Winner – Tiger Woods!

Friday, June 5th, 2009

Last year, Anthony Kim showed on exceptional performance at the AT&T National, winning with ease.

This year, Anthony Kim comes really close, playing with Tiger Woods in the final group of the final round.

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!

Michelle Wie Playing the Reno Tahoe Open!

Michelle Wie Playing in the Reno Tahoe Open

Well, the biggest news this week is probably the fact that Michelle Wie is playing a PGA tournament, that of Reno Tahoe Open against over 100 best players in the world.

Well, they may not be the best players considering that the World Golf Championships are going on, but still, you’d kill to even play one of those events.

The weirdest part is that I wasn’t rooting for Michelle Wie after I heard that she will be playing this week.

Well it gets weirder as now I want Michelle Wie to play good and make the cut.

As weird as that sounds, you may be thinking the same thing, rooting for something that looks impossible just like Tiger won the U.S. Open this year on his impossible knees, or the fact that Greg Norman held 54-hole lead at the Open.

Whatever the case, this week is probably the most important for golfers for Wie to play well, or at least keep up to her early reputation as the future-Tiger of LPGA.
