The first weekend in December normally is pretty boring in the golf world, but this one turned out to be pretty entertaining. Here is a quick recap of what happen this past weekend.
- If you don’t know already, Tiger Woods blew a four shot lead and lost his own tournament at the Chevron World Challenge. Tiger says it’s a positive step and he’s fine with blowing his lead. I doubt that. He probably got up this morning and made himself do 1,024 pushups and situps. Either way, he is close and people better watch out this year.
- Jim Furyk wins the PGA Tour Player of the Year and Rickie Fowler picks up the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. No surprise really with Furyk, although I thought Matt Kuchar would win it, but Lee Westwood seems to have a problem with Rickie Fowler winning Rookie of the Year.
- Veteran PGA Tour player Billy Mayfair wins Q-School shooting 18-under par over the six day grueling final round at Orange County National. Also, the bigger story is turning out to be Joseph Bramlett, who becomes the first African American in 25 years to make it through the final round of Q-School shooting a final day 68 to finish within the top 25.
- Maria Hjorth won the LPGA Tour Championship and Yani Tseng won the LPGA Player of the Year. I’ve said it before and I am going to say it again: I need to pay attention more to the LPGA so I can talk about them a little more as well.
