Does it get any more incredible with Tiger Woods? He does it again yesterday with a birdie to win on eighteen. He wasn’t even playing that well. He looked like he was spraying the ball, but he finally found that putter. He was the leader in birdies, putts per round and second in putts per GIR. All he had to do was get it on the green. His habit of sinking putts on eighteen to win at Bay Hill is getting stale. Maybe next year he can eagle it to change things up a little. Tiger looks like he may be ready to reclaim his Masters title, his last win was in 2005. You have to feel for Sean O’ Hair. He’s a great kid but playing with Tiger when he turns it on is a tough on everyone. Let’s hope Phil’s team has him stroking it this week at Houston. Then it’s on to the Masters and a showdown for the ages.

Is there is a person in golf that is more loved than Arnold Palmer? I think not.

I loved Johnny Miller on sixteen asking what the heck Tiger was aiming at with his third shot. All he did was stiff it to three feet. Dan Hicks and Gary Koch had a good point when they were discussing how the players would handle the new groove restrictions next year. They aren’t going to be able to spin it like they were yesterday.

Cheers to Webb Simpson, our PGA rookie, for holing it on seventeen on Saturday. Arnie was watching his fellow Wake Forest man and was thrilled for him.

On the Champions Tour Keith Fergus shot six under over his last seven holes to win at the Cap Cana Championship. That is lights out baby! That Nicklaus course in the Dominican Republic looked like it was dropped right on the edge of the beach. Great scenery and golf right on the ocean, those Champions know how to live.

Karrie Webb shoots a five under 67 to come from behind and win the LPGA tourney in Phoenix. Now we’ll get to see the LPGA for a few weeks, they have the first major of the season this week at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Our LPGA rookie, Stacy Lewis missed the cut.
