Justin Rose, the reigning US Open champion has stated that the tendinitis problem in his right shoulder that has been troubling him for quite some time is close to being fully healed and he hopes it will be fully healed by the time the Masters event tees off in a few weeks’ time in April.
Speaking to the media before tee off at the World Golf Championship – Cadillac Championship, Rose stated that he took one week off from training as he looks ahead to the Masters. He mentioned that the shoulder injury has not eased off fully but it is on its way to being healed.
The Atlantic storms off late hurled a heavy blow on many golf courses. Two of the most damaged names are Rosses Point & Doonbeg golf clubs. Albeit some of the clubs were able to stand against the coastal erosion given their “rock armour” defense mechanism yet these two clubs were not so fortunate.
The “rock armour” defense helps to limit the damage, restricting the fallout to mere debris, rocks and litter-nothing which the old-fashioned manual cleanup can’t sort out.
Gary Player is a nine time winner of major championships and a member of the Golf Hall of Fame and he has now weighed in on the rules infraction of Tiger Woods as well as some of his other problems on the course.
Rory McIlroy, the Irish golfer, has given the Scottish Open a big boost by including himself in the event. Next July, it would be Rory’s very first to Royal Aberdeen and this would be the very first time when 2 major champs will take part in the event since ending joint 46th behind Martin Kaymer in the year 2009. Rory stated that Royal Aberdeen is a great place to play golf. This decision will certainly please both the title sponsor of the event Aberdeen Asset Management and the European Tour.
In just a matter of a couple of strokes, Patrick Reed went from being a sure shot disaster to securing his maiden title on the US PGA Tour at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday.
The first title he has won since turning professional and joining the US PGA Tour, Reed defeated Jordan Spieth with almost an improbably birdie putt on the second hole.
Bubba Watson is a professional golfer from the United States of America who is currently a part of the US PGA Tour and is a former winner of the US Masters, having won the title in 2012. Born as Gary Lester Watson, Jr. he is one of the few left handed golfers playing on the Tour at this time alongside the legendary ‘Lefty’ Phil Mickelson.
The European Tour’s new season will commence with the Nelson Mandela Championship tournament. The entire season is known as the Race to Dubai. Here, the European Tour will conclude late in 2013. There are bets that can be placed on specific competitions within the Tour or futures betting on who will win the Race to Dubai.
Webb Simpson is a professional golfer from the United States of America who is currently a part of the US PGA Tour and is the winner of the 2012 US Open. Simpson had a very glittering amateur career and was a part of the United States’ victorious Palmer Cup and Walker Cup teams back in 2007. After he finished high school, Simpson was given the Arnold Palmer Scholarship to study at the Wake Forest University.
If Phil Mickelson is the most well known golfer in terms of his left handed style, then surely Bubba Watson comes a close second in terms of popularity.
The American is a one-time major champion, having won the US Masters title at the Augusta National back in 2012. Apart from Mickelson and Watson, there are hardly any other left handed golfers on the US PGA Tour and that makes him one of the most followed golfers at this moment, behind the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
