TW the sequel was on display this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational

 

 

Orlando, Florida - At the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, Tiger Woods ended his

924 day drought without a victory, and once again showed the Golf world that he can

re-invent his golf swing and his career.It was classic Tiger, a truly dominant performance

. . . he led the field in total driving and greens in regulation, something that has been missing

for quite sometime.TW's Sunday 70 was a ball striking clinic, truly masterful on a day when

the winds blew and the pins were tucked, "It was tough out there, Arnie really set up some

tough pins out there today".


The critics questioned whether this day would come, Tiger insisted it would . . . "I'm excited

about the things that we have been working on, it's been getting better and better, and better".

When asked if he needed the win, Tiger said, "No I wanted to win, I've always had a great desire

to win, that's why I enter these tournaments".Todd Lewis from the Golf Channel asked

Tiger afterwards, "How good can you be?" Woods responded "I probably won't know until I'm

done playing".If this is the beginning of the sequel to Tiger's career, it can only be good for the

game of golf.


Arnold Palmer was not able to attend the award ceremony, he had to be taken to the hospital

for observation because of high blood pressure.It was considered a precaution, his condition was

stabilized as of Sunday evening.


Graeme McDowell finished 2nd at -8 (74), Ian Poulter 3rd at -6, and Ernie Els came up short in his

bid to qualify for The Masters . . . he finished tied for 5th at (-5).

Back on top, Luke Donald wins the Transitions Championship

 

 

 

Palm Harbor, Florida - Luke Donald allowed Rory McIlroy to enjoy the view for two weeks,

then he set his sights on reclaiming his spot as World #1 Sunday at The Transitions Championship

on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook.Donald's 66 Sunday was enough to reach -13 and a

playoff against Sang Moon Bae, Jim Furyk, and Robert Garrigus.


On the first hole of the playoff (18th hole), Bae and Furyk missed their lengthy birdie putts, as did

Garrigus, who missed his from 7 feet, and that set the stage for the Englishman not only to win, but

regain his ranking as world #1.Luke Donald then did what he does better than just about anybody in

golf, he buried his 6 ft putt and sent a message to the rest of his peers that 2011 was no fluke.


Donald reflected on regaining number 1, "That certainly wasn't my focus. I was just focused on trying

to win the tournament, and it worked out."


Ken Duke, Scott Pearcy, and Ernie Els all finished tied for 5th at -12.

Justin Rose wins the WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral

 

On the TPC Blue Monster at Doral, Justin Rose outlasted Bubba Watson to win

his first World Golf Championship.Rose shot 70 on a blustery Sunday, when the

course yielded very few low scores.World #1 Rory McIlroy was the only player to

mount a serious charge from behind (shooting 67), but his bogey at 18 derailed

any hopes of a second consecutive victory.

 

Rose is a confident player right now, "No doubt about it," he said. "If you look at the

tournaments I've won, Jack's tournament, Tiger's tournament, a Playoff event over

here and now a World Golf Championships, the progression is really, really nice. The

only thing that really is the next level up is a major."

 

Tiger Woods withdrew on Sunday with an injury to his left achilles tendon.After

hitting his drive on the par 5 twelfth, he summoned over a marshall and was takin

off the course by golf cart.No word on whether he will be ready for the Masters in

3 weeks.
