Friday notes

Here’s a few things to note as we clock off for the week:
  • Has Geoff Ogilvy turned the corner? He had an awesome start to the year, slumped in the middle but has put together a few good weeks in a row and for the first time in ages, is right in the hunt after round one at the BMW Championship at Cog Hill.
  • PGA Tour rookie Marc Leishman‘s eagled the last hole last week to propel him into this penultimate FedEx Cup tournament. He has had three top-20’s out of his past four tournaments and looks hot once again this week. Australia’s newest golf star.
  • John Daly won’t make it to Australia this summer after withdrawing from tournament commitments with a rib injury. I’m sure this isn’t the first time in his career he’s succumbed to a rib or two but I’m genuinely disappointed. He had a rough time last year and his golf wasn’t up to scratch but he seemed to be coming back into some form.
  • There’s plenty of golfers Twittering now but this is a first. Michelle Wie has set up a personal blog.
  • Oh and if you missed it, here’s why Greg Norman chose Adam Scott to play in the Presidents Cup.

    I think Greg Norman is trying to show the Presidents Cup is a ‘exhibition’, NOT a ‘competiton’…

    I wonder if Daly will ever get back on track?

    I wonder if Norman was looking for someone he could upstage?

    I wonder if Michelle Wie will pose for Playboy, oops, I mean ESPN?

    What is the LPGA and ESPN thinking anyway?
