End of the Season

I just finished watching the final round of the Dubai World Championship and it was an exciting one to say the least. Fans of the European Tour got a real treat this week with all of the great players doing so well. Ian Poulter had the championship in his grasp but just missed out at the end to Robert Karlsson.

Lee Westwood is still #1 in the world. Yay! I am a real big fan of the Tiger-less era of golf. Golf itself is so much better with his absence from the #1 spot.

Three Major Champions this year are from the European Tour - Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell and Martin Kaymer. Whoever it was a few years ago that said the Nationwide Tour was better should probably never utter another word in his life.

And finally, a few words on Martin Kaymer. My pick at the beginning of the year for the Player to Watch, he gave us something to watch throughout the year. Several tour wins, a Major Championship, Ryder Cup success, and the Race to Dubai winner for 2010.

So, now we turn our thoughts to 2011. Who will win the Race to Dubai? Who will captain the next Ryder Cup team? Who will have the best showing at the majors? Which Spaniard will have the best season? What will happen with the World Number 1 Ranking? So many questions that we fans can't wait to have answered.

The Needle in the Haystack

Once every few months I check out my gmail account to see how many useless facebook and twitter emails I've received. Interspersed among them are newsletters and spam. And then, among those, I will sometimes find email from real people, website owners, bloggers, those who want to exchange links or get a little publicity here on this not so regularly updated blog. Today, I read an email from hharrison1 who asked me to check out the blog Discovering the Game of Golf. I did and found it pretty entertaining. I like the humor. So, you should also check out the blog.
