Golf World at a Glance, Masters Tournament! - Tuesday, April 05, 2011
Hello all!

Masters week has just begun, so let’s check out what’s going on on the green. 

For the first time, Tiger is not the book-keepers favourite. That honour goes to Phil Mickelson, the defending champion. The odds for Mickelson are an amazing 8 to 1, with Woods at 10 to 1. At least it’s not at 25 to 1, eh Tiger?

Want to experience the Master’s tournament first-hand? You just might have a chance! Starting yesterday, a viewer could register for the lottery to buy practice-round tickets for the 2012 Masters. However, for the first time in 47 years, daily tickets will be offered to the public through the masters.com website. However, tickets are limited. Still, what a wonderful opportunity for us golfing fans!

Augusta National had a 45 minute delay for tee-time this morning after workers needed time to clean debris from overnight storms before The Masters practice round. The storms toppled trees and some power lines across town, though there was no word on any damage to the actual green.

In other news, Lee Westwood survived his second emergency landing the other day (his first occurred in Switzerland en rout to Augusta from the Shell Houston Open. A cockpit fire forced his private jet to make an emergency landing just 30 seconds after take-off. Even with all his luck on the green in the past year, I wouldn’t want to be him in a plane!

Curious to know who’s teeing off at the moment? Knetgolf.com has the tee times for The Master’s Tournament below!

Golf World at a Glance, March 10th, 2011 - Thursday, March 10, 2011

Happy Thursday to all our faithful customers out there!

We’ll start today with Tiger Woods. Tiger has been practicing to overhaul his swing, his third swing change in his career. However, it doesn’t look like things are going too well for the ex-champion. His new coach Sean Foley filmed Tiger’s new  swings Wednesday morning during a practice that unfortunately produced staggeringly wayward shots. It doesn’t look like Tiger’s winning drought is going to end anytime soon.

Tiger hasn’t been playing a lot either lately, and when he teed off Thursday in the Cadillac Championship at Doral, it was only his 10th competitive round of the year, an unusually low number with the Masters around the corner. And what’s the reason? Family matters. Tiger says that being a divorced dad can be difficult, and that if you’ve ever been divorced and had kids, you’d understand. It just proves that his family life is developing along with his golf swing. Tiger is now fifth in the world, with Graeme McDowell in fourth,  Luke Donald in third and Lee Westwood in second.

 

As for the golf world’s new #1,  Martin Kaymer celebrated his rise without ever leaving America.The 26-year-old German has a home in Scottsdale, Ariz., which is where he spent last week after his runner-up finish in the Match Play Championship that allowed him to replace Lee Westwood atop the ranking. His brother, a friend, and his father flew in from Germany to congratulate him. There’s no better way to celebrate than a surprise reunion with loved ones.


The LPGA Tour has now signed a three-year deal with CME Group for it to be the title sponsor of the season-ending Titleholders tournament in Florida. CME has previously been involved with the LPGA Tour by hosting pro-am events and sponsoring the SolheimCup. The Title Sponsorship will be giving the LPGA a big boost in the sagging economy.


Miles Davis is taking over as executive director of the U.S Golf Association. The USGA announced Wednesday that it had selected Davis to be it’s seventh executive director, replacing David Fay, who retired in December after 21 years in charge. Davis has been the senior director of rules and competition since 2005. Congratulations on your promotion, Mr. Davis!


And now, for a little bit of sad news. Another big name in the golf industry has passed away. Frank Chrikinian, the longtime golf producer for CBS has passed away  at the age of 84 at his home last Friday. Chrikinian helped turn the Masters into one of the most watched events in sports television. The television pioneer, who died after a long bout with lung cancer, was elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame  in the lifetime achievement category just last month after it first became widely known that he was undergoing cancer treatment .Knetgolf.com sends our  condolences to the friends and family of Mr.Chrikinian


And that’s it for today, hope you all have a lovely weekend.


Tee Off!
