The great golf weeks just keep on coming and this week there is another fantastic double header of Tournaments across both Tours. The Desert Swing draws to its conclusion with the Omega Dubai Desert Classic the original and still the best of all the Desert Tournaments.
It features the appearance of a certain shell shocked Tiger Woods who made his seasonal debut last week at his beloved Torrey Pines where he played, lets think of the correct technical term here, oh yes… Crap. So badly in fact that on Sunday he shot 79 and his third worst round as a professional golfer. I don’t know what he has spent the off season doing with Tiger you dread to think but if I was his coach I would be worried that I would be soon hearing the combination of one letter and two numbers that’s right p45!
He is on a mega pay day just turning up this week but will not want to miss the cut especially with young Rory in the field. Any one who believes the Nike official line that these two are great pals and love to hang out should have a walk to the bottom of their garden to see the Fairies. It’s certainly going to be interesting to see if Tiger can at least drive it in the general direction of the fairways this week rather than the at times comical performance of last week. The Man Utd penalties were struck better than his Drives!
Over in America we have the most romantic and beautiful of all Golf Tournament names. The Phoenix Waste Management Open. Despite its Rubbish name (do I have to spell these out) this is the best attended Golf Tournament in the World and there will be a raucous crowd, the majority of whom will be baiting Ian Poulter. I’m sure Poults will enjoy it and he could have a good week he looked in good nick last week with the exception of his tartan trousers.
One Brit who didn’t was Lee Westwood who claimed he was moving to Florida so he could practice more through the Winter. On the evidence of last week I think he must have been going to Disney World instead because he is starting to look in serious decline. Less tweeting more putting perhaps.
We had a near miss with Gary Woodland last week at Golf Bet Profits who led at 66/1 going in to the last round then completely bottled it. We are due one and that could very well be this week as we go pot hunting in the Desert and we aim to be anything but Garbage in the Waste Management Open (surely he won’t do any more).
Join us and be on the inside of the ropes.
Back next Tuesday.
