This is the golf news recap for Tuesday, October-19-10.
Looking at one of the biggest stars in the golf world, Tiger Woods claims that though this year has been bad for his record book, he has never learned more, now being at peace with his rather messy personal life, and hopeful that he will not end the season without a victory.
Rookie Beatriz Recari, however, won her first title at the CVS/Pharmacy LPGA challenge Sunday, rebounding from a late bogey to make a 2-foot putt for a 2-under 70 and a one-stroke victory, beating Gwladys Nocera of France. Knetgolf sends her a hearty congratulations.
Speaking of winning, Padraig Harrington won his first victory in two years this past Sunday, winning the Asian Tour Open, beating South Korea’s Noh Seung-yul by three strokes. Harrington hasn’t won sing the 2008 PGA Championship. Good for him!
