Weekend Golf Oddities

Two tournaments sponsored by two big luxury car makers were held on different sides of the Atlantic on the weekend and each threw up something strange.

The Euro Tour Mercedes-Benz Championship was held in Germany and James Kingston from South Africa won the event. In fact, the top 6 players from the tournament all had a name finishing with the letter “N”. Of these six, three were named Hansen or Hanson! MmmBop.

The PGA Tour BMW Championship was held across the pond in Illinois, USA where Tiger Woods romped to a massive victory. It was the 3rd tournament of the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Top 30 players went through to next week’s season ending tournament.

Australia’s Marc Leishman has been phenomenal of late and his second place gives him a spot next week – now 16th in the rankings.

John Senden has also crept into next week’s lucrative event but only because of some last hole troubles from Brandt Snedeker. No one likes to see this and Snedeker is one of the most likable players in world golf. He was apparently told he needed a par to sneak into the top-30, in truth he only needed bogey – this happened and he finished with a triple bogey. Heartbreaking.
