“Hooks and Slices” will bring you our view on whats happening in the golf world.
Get ready golf fans, it’s a Tiger Woods weekend. The PGA Tour heads to Washington D.C. area for the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club. Tiger is hosting the tournament and trying to win it for the first time. Anthony Kim is the defending champion and he appears to be coming out of his season long funk. He was T16 at The US Open and T11 at The Travelers last week. There are plenty of guys that will be trying to stop Kim from repeating and Tiger from claiming his third win of the season.
Guys to Watch:
Hunter Mahan has been really hot, two top tens in his last two starts and a good history at Congressional.
Sean O’Hair is number one in All Around Ranking, and has a newfound confidence this year. This is his first tournament since his new child was born last week.
Paul Goydos has been playing well, he just ran into the Kenny Perry steamroller last week. He has a T2, T3, and T4 in three of his last four outings.
Dark Horse Pick: Ryan Moore, after three missed cuts Moore has a T10 at The Open and a T4 at The Travelers. This could be his week.
I am not going to mention that Tiger Woods would really like to win this tournament. Oops, I guess I did.
The LPGA is at The Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in Ohio. Does Farr still dress like Klinger and wear a dress? This is the final tune up before The US Women’s Open.
Paula Creamer is defending but she may have a hard time competing with an injured thumb.
Lorena Ochoa is playing and looking to get back to her Number One form.
Jiyai Shin has won twice this year and is leading in the race for Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. How can you pick against that?
I have to hope our Rookie favorite, Stacy Lewis, plays well and is peaking just in time for next week’s Open.
