All right so the PGA Tour opens this week with the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua and we’ll get to see most of last year’s winners stroll around the Plantation Course amid sunny skies and warm ocean breezes. Te tell you the truth it makes me a little jealous knowing they are playing golf in Hawaii and I’m stuck counting the days until the snow melts and the courses open in March. However, I’m glad to see the pros back out there and look forward to an exciting 2011. So with tongue firmly in cheek, here are some predictions and guarantees for the 2011 season.
Tiger Woods will definitely win swear on tour in 2011.
Dustin Johnson will prove he knows what a bunker is and manage to hang on and win a major.
Martin Kaymer will spend more time as world number one than Lee Westwood and Woods.
Alexis Thompson and Stacy Lewis will win on The LPGA Tour.
Phil Mickelson will eat a cheeseburger before the season is over.
Ben Crane will play as slow as Rex Ryan running the 100 yard dash.
Michelle Wie will win a major and cry like a baby.
Steve Stricker will win and cry like an older baby.
Rickie Fowler earns his stripes with a win this year.
Jim Furyk is early for every tee time.
I, along with a few pros will fall asleep during the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Lee Westwood will win will not win will win a major this year. I’ll be damned if I can call this one.
Tiger wins a major but not The Masters.
Phil wins The Masters.
This golf season will spend more time on the sports page and less time on TMZ.
Let the games begin!
