A few snippets from the weekend’s tournaments including a near naked golfer.
- The Big Philly Cheese steak won the CA Championship. Phil Mickelson is now very close overtaking Tiger as the number one player in golf. The Aussies didn’t fare very well. Australian Masters Champion, Rod Pampling was the highlight finishing in the Top 10 while Robert Allenby is slowly finding some form.
- Aaron Baddeley was disqualified from the WGC tournament. On the 3rd hole during his third round, he asked a rules official if he could move a stone in the hazard near his ball. Most of us know the answer. No. He proceeded to play and six holes later realised that he had moved a stone in the same hazard the day before. As this occurred in a previous round he’d signed an incorrect score card and disqualified himself. It was very honest of him to do so and Aaron said he couldn’t live with himself if he had continued. What was he thinking for six holes between the 3rd and the 9th?
- Henrik Stenson has made world headlines by all but stripping naked to play a shot from a muddy lie during his first round on Friday. Wearing nothing but a glove and his jocks he took on the muddy lie and made bogey. He’s copped a lot from everyone including fellow professionals for this daring golf shot but I think it’s something can all learn from. [More pics of the near naked Swede]
- Jason Day almost pulled off a debut win on the PGA Tour at the Peurto Rico Open while the big cats were away at the CA Championship. He had a great week though and it’s only a matter of time for him. Greg Chalmers bagged a hole in one on his way to a Top 5 finish.
