“Hooks and Slices” will bring you our view on whats happening in the golf world.
Arnold Palmer welcomes the tour to his Bay Hill Club this week. There is a pretty good field and no shortage of great golfers and good stories to watch this week. The King knows how to put on a tournament and the players respect Palmer as much as anyone in golf.
Tiger is back, defending and looking for his sixth win at Bay Hill. After last year’s finish, would we be surprised if he won again?
Nick Watney is having a breakout year and is still hot.
Can Retief Goosen go back to back? If that putter stays hot he’ll be around on Sunday.
David Toms is playing too good to be missing a win this year. He leads the tour in scoring average and all-around. He has three top tens and is ready to take home a trophy.
If Arnie is the King, then Erik Compton is the King of Hearts. You heard the story; Erik is competing in his fourth tour event after his second heart transplant last May. There isn’t a better story in sports.
Don’t forget the European Tour is in Spain this week. The Coolest Guy in Golf, Miguel Angel Jimenez, is hosting the Open de Andalucia de Golf ’09. Jose Maria Olazabal and Colin Montgomerie are in a good European field.
