It looks like Hank still has some work to do with Charles Barkley.
The title kind of says it all. How unusual is it that any given week’s PGA Tour event the 3rd most interesting golf tournament taking place? Yes, “Johnny Vegas” is doing his thing at the Bob Hope Classic this week and could grab his first PGA Tour victory in just his fifth start. But despite that, I honestly think both the European Tour and Champions Tour events are more exciting.
On the Champions Tour, we have Tom Watson shooting a 65 on Saturday to make it into the final pairing for Sunday. I generally don’t follow the Champions Tour, but if Watson is in contention, I’m probably going to tune in.
And in Abu Dhabi, we’ve got the best player in the world showing his stuff. No, not world #1, Lee Westwood. I’m talking about the best golfer in the world right now, Martin Kaymer. When you look at his swing, you wonder why he doesn’t win every single event he enters. He’s only made 1 bogey this week and is 3 clear of the field. And if he wins, I believe that he will move past Woods into the #2 world ranking spot on Monday. If that happens, the #1 ranking seems like just a matter of time.
So what do you guys think? Am I way out in left field on this one?

The Champions tour is running a cool promotion this month of facebook. At the end of the month, they will be posting a Golf Galaxy discount code for their Facebook followers based on how many people “like” their Facebook page this month. They’re at 3k fans, which qualifies for a 5% discount. If they hit 5k fans (which seems reasonable with 2 1/2 weeks left) the discount will be 25%. I’m not much of a Champions Tour fan, but I am a fan of 25% discounts on stuff at Golf Galaxy.
