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!

Hello everybody!

 

What’s new today in the golf world?

 

For starter, we have a new #1!  26 year old German Martin Kaymer has climbed to the top of the golf world. Kaymer only started the European Tour in 2007,but since then the Ryder Cup player has won nine times including the PGA Championship last year. Good for you Mr. Kaymer!

 

For up and coming champions, the news is good too. Jordan Spieth, a 17-year old who won over the gallery at last year’s HP Byron Nelson Championship and was in the run for the title, has agreed to return on a sponsor’s exemption to the PGA Tour event in 2011, in an attempt to finish his senior high school year. The talented teenager will play golf at the University of Texas next fall.  All the best to you Jordan!

 

Tiger Woods, as always, makes the news as well. The most recent news is that he will not play in the Honda Classic next week at the PGA Nationals in Palm Gardens, Fla. His agent says that the  it is not because of his first-round loss last Wednesday in the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona, but because of previously existing commitments.


Golfer Mathew Goggin, a 36-year old two time winner has won the Nationwide Tour Season opening Panama Championship, shooting a 2-under 68 on Sunday for a two stroke tour. He earned $99,000.
