Another busy weekend in the world of golf with the Women’s World Cup at Sun City and the usual European and PGA Tours also in full swing.
Little known D.J. Trahan upset some of the vetrans of the tour to win the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic by three shots over Just Leonard. He came from four shots back on the final round to pick up his second victory on the PGA Tour.
On the European Tour, Germany’s Martin Kaymer strolled to a four shot win despite shooting a final round two-over par 74. He beat some of the big names on the tour including Swede Henrik Stenson and Englishman Lee Westwood.
But the fun and games are now over and the colossal rivalry between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson begins it’s next chapter this coming weekend. They both make their season debut’s at the Buick Invitational in San Diego. Ranked numbers one and two in the world at the moment, both these legends have had huge success at the beginning of their previous seasons.
Tiger has won the Buick for the past three years and has won it five times overall. But don’t write off Phil who has won this event three times.
The measuring stick is out! Have the other players in the field worked hard enough during Tiger’s downtime to challenge the world’s number one?
If Tiger or Phil win, after all this time off, the mental battle for many tournaments for the rest of the season will be won!
Let the games begin!
