A Golf Fan’s Christmas Wish List

How about some success for David Duval in 2010. “Double D” threatened at The US Open and moved up over 600 places in The World Golf Rankings in 2009.

It would be great to see Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood win a major. Westwood has been playing so well world-wide it may be his time. It would be great if Sergio won just so he could stop whining.

Here’s wishing that the LPGA can catch a break and they can utilize the connections and enthusiasm that new commissioner, Michael Whan brings to the table.

If the LPGA is to thrive, Michelle Wie will be a vital part. Let’s hope she continues to mature as a person and a golfer. If so, she’ll bring plenty of excitement to the tour.

I’d love to see more of Erik Compton on the tours, be it PGA or Nationwide. This guy deserves a sponsor’s invite to every tournament. He’d bring much good will and publicity to any tourney smart enough to invite him.

While we are rooting for the underdog…we have to throw John Daly in there also. Let’s hope (not so) Big John Daly will continue his comeback with some good play on tour. He’ll also be able to give Tiger some advice on coming back from rock bottom.

I’m hoping Stacy Lewis wins on the LPGA in 2010. Here’s another great personal comeback story. She never missed a LPGA outing to a hospital or food bank or any chance to try and give back.

I am assuming that sometime there will be an end to the Tiger Woods mess. At some point he’ll be playing again, he may be single, or playing with a chastity belt on, but he’ll be back. Let’s hope he comes back, answers the questions, and gets on with the golf.

We can look forward to Rory McIlroy playing full time on the PGA Tour. He’ll bring a talent, imagination and excitement that will shake up the young American players.

Here’s wishing that Phil Mickelson’s wife and mom are healthy and Phil continues his wonderful play that won him two tournaments at the end of 2009. Phil can win a pair of majors, take home a half dozen PGA Tour titles and smile his way to number one in the world. That would be just what the PGA Tour needs.

Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!
