The Monday Wrapup

In an interesting coincidence, none of the major U.S. based golf tour held tournaments in the U.S. this weekend.

Jim Furyk repeats as Canadian Open champion, beating Vijay Singh by one shot

A final round 64, including a hole-in-one on the 209 yard Par 4th, propelled Furyk from three strokes back at the start of the round to the victory. Singh has a chance to force a sudden death playoff but could not get a birdie attempt to go in on the 18th green. It is the first win of the year for Furyk, and in my opinion the least interesting golf story of the weekend.

A two under in the final round put her in the playoff with Jang Jeong of South Korea, where she reached the Par 5 18th green in 2.

A lot of men in the world (and possibly ten percent of women) would like to be that troph


Hi, this is Natalie. You may be wondering why, after making such a prestigish tournament my first win I'm commendeering the blog. Well, I wanted to say something to the golf world, and this is as a good a place as any:

Anna Kournikova of the golf world my ass.
By the way, my 2008 calendar will be in stores this fall. Thank you.
Not a bad seven days; lead the British Open on the back nine last Sunday and finish third, then win the next week.

With his agressive style, Romero may be the heir apparent to Seve Ballesteros. He may not have the short game wizardry of the Spainard, and he wouldn't be able to grab the hearts of European fans with Ryder Cup exploits, but he doesn't seem to fear any shot.

The win moves him to fifth in the European Order of Merit and will move him up enough in the World Golf Rankings to ensure his playing in the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.

There is no word on where he falls in the 'bedding comely female golf fans' standings; South American Division' where Camilo Villegas currently leads in the clubhouse.

Watson washes the bad taste of failing to win the U.S. Senior Open out of his mouth with his eighth British Open victory (5 original recipie, three senior).
I can't think of any American athlete that has had more success in Britian in a sport people actually care about there. And next year the tournament will take place at Troon, a course he won on of his British Open titles.
