When will Camilo Villegas overtake Phil in world rankings?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAt the beginning of the year, a male friend of mine (who wishes to remain nameless, but is as addicted to golf as I am) said that he thought that before the end of 2009, Camilo would pass Phil in the world rankings. Currently Phil is number 4, Camilo 11. But as my friend reminded me, Camilo was at number ... Read More »

Happy 29th Birthday El Nino!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAccording to The Irish Independent, Jim Furyk nearly fell off his chair when someone included Sergio Garcia in the list of 20-somethings making a big noise on Tour. “Sergio is still in his 20s?” said Furyk in disbelief. “Really? When did he start, age 12?” LOL! I thought that was pretty funny. But it’s true – Sergio seems to have ... Read More »

Okay, okay, I stand corrected – competing with the best of those vying for ‘second best’ of the best 😉 Well, that’s what one of the world’s sexiest golfers is doing – Camilo Villegas turned 27 today and he’s ...

Camilo Villegas – so much more than just a pretty face!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailBack in April, I did a post on GFW (which is sadly no more) about Golf Channel’s “Top 10 Sexiest Golfers”. I’ve resurrected it here because it seems so appropriate now that Camilo Villegas has proven that he’s not just another pretty face/body anymore. There is a saying that marketing people like me use when we’re forced to put lipstick ... Read More »

Michelle Wie gives up Major chance for PGA Cut AGAIN!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail I wasn’t going to blog about Michelle Wie’s decision in play in yet another PGA tour event because the story is soooo old, but I came across this article in SPORT where Leadbetter holds nothing back in his criticism of Michelle’s choice (or perhaps her parent’s choice) to skip the chance to play in an LPGA Major to play ...

Another Sting by Vijay Singh

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail Not sure how I missed this story earlier this week, but it really doesn’t surprise me too much. Vijay has gotten himself into media trouble before. He sure isn’t afraid to say what he thinks, is he? And obviously he’s been thinking that the UK players are slacking off… “Lots of them start out with the right intentions and ... Read More »

Monty needs a Miracle at this Major

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIf you like Monty like I like Monty, then you should check out this story in the Independent below. It’s full of good quotes, some humor and definitely some “oh really’s!”. The comment that surprised me the most was this quote from Colin about his future in the majors… “I think I will play in 15 to 20 more majors, ... Read More »

Strange golf weekend – Robert Karlsson a bridesmaid again

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailYou all know by now what a big fan I am of the European Tour and my fave players include Darren Clarke, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Nick Dougherty, Lee Westwood, Padraig Harrington and so many other greats we see pretty regularly on the PGA as well, like Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter. And of course, the ever loveable Monty 🙂 But ... Read More »

An oldie…but a goodie!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI am often amazed at the number of North American golfers who don’t watch the European Tour. I find it to be some of the most exciting golf on TV and the players are not only talented, they are entertaining as well. And one of my very favorite “entertainers”, Miguel Angel Jimenez, just proved that golf is ageless. At the ... Read More »
