Sergio Garcia Wins the 2008 Players Championship!

Just in, Sergio Garcia wins the 2008 Players Championship.  Remember my 2 predictions? Well, maybe I got lucky or not but it’s easy to tell that a veteran will always win over an event like this.

Paul Goydos is a veteran too but Sergio Garcia has definitely proven himself as “one of the elite” players who can dig down at the heat of competition.

Kudos to the Spaniard for another win for your fan! :)

Tomorrow, we will do a swing analysis on the champion Sergio Garcia so make sure to subscribe to the blog! :)

Paul Goydos in the Lead at the Players Championship!

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

Well, my predictions were a little off for today as Paul Goydos took the lead, Anthony Kim fell way back with a 79, but Sergio Garcia is still in there.

My bet still goes to Sergio Garcia, let’s see what happens tomorrow.

FYI, Anthony Kim still leads in driving distance for the week.  That might be his culprit, maybe trying to hit too hard.

In the meanwhile, Paul Goydos leads in putts, which is probably what it takes for a tournament like this.

Too bad again, Tiger wasn’t there to mess up the scores…

Round 2 of The Players Championship!

Round 2 of The Players Championship!

Kenny Perry is at the top of the leaderboard with -6 total score while Bernard Langer, Paul Goydos, and Sergio Garcia tied for second at -5.

Anthony Kim, the young Korean American, is at -2, at sole 5th place.

With Tiger Woods not in the game this week, it’s hard to tell who will win as everyone’s a winner.

My bet goes to the youngsters Sergio Garcia or Anthony Kim.

According to Mark O’Meara, golfer with one of the nicest swings in PGA Tour, says Anthony Kim has much better swing than Tiger.

Now, if he’s game is as good as his swing this week, he should be able to win, that is if he can beat Sergio.

Sergio Garcia is at lead after the first round today of 66.

Sergio makes 7 birdies, 1 bogey, and rest pars.

In the meanwhile, Tiger is going through an arthroscopic surgery on his left knee until May 15th, meaning he might be out for awhile.

Who do you think will win this year’s player’s championship?
