Some Friday Morning Tips
Hopefully this will bring back the tiger we know!!!!
Fifty-three weeks after he relinquished the No. 1 ranking in the world for the first time in more than five years, Tiger Woods dropped to his lowest point since his early days as a professional.
Because of injuries, he had barely played in 2011, was a controversial captain’s pick of Fred Couples for the U.S. Presidents Cup team, competed in just one tournament following a missed cut at the PGA Championship, and produced a mediocre tie for 30th at the Frys.com Open.
Woods was ranked 58th in the world.
It was easily explained away: He had missed so many tournaments, his ranking was bound to slip. He hadn’t won in more than two years, the points from all of those 2009 victories disappearing.
Still, it was a bit jarring to see the player who had been at No. 1 longer than any other fall so far, so fast
Michael Hendry has claimed back-to-back New Zealand PGA Championship titles, beating Australian Scott Strange at the first play-off hole in Queenstown on Sunday.
The pair returned to the 18th tee at The Hills after being tied at 19-under at the end of 72 holes, four shots ahead of the rest of the field.
While Strange found a bunker with his approach to the green, Hendry landed his ball within five metres of the pin and then sank the birdie putt for victory.
“I’ve actually won every playoff I’ve ever been in, which is obviously a good record – not that I thought about that prior to going out,” said Hendry
