Welcome to all you new readers and thanks again to everyone who is
spreading the word about Golfing Weekly.
You may recall that last week I speculated that maybe "this week's
matchplay format may just give him [Tiger Woods] the focus he needs". Any of you that
watched the WGC tournament last week, as I did, will have seen the old Tiger in action
from the first round right through to the final. His career record shows outstanding
performance in head-to-head matches and it was clear from his interview after his victory
that he thrives on this type of intense competition. Despite recent speculation to the
contrary, I do not believe his dominant position in the world of golf is likely to be
seriously threatened for quite some time to come.
The other golfing #1, Ladies champion, Annika Sorenstam didn't appear
to show any signs of rust on her return after a two month break. A couple of 65s at the
weekend to win on her debut 2004 outing was enough to show her intentions for the rest of
the year. The LPGA Tour proper doesn't kick off till March 11th but it was nice to see her
warming up with some style.
That's it for now. Don't forget, if there is anything you would like us
to add to Golfing Weekly, or if you have any comments you would like to make, just drop us
a line. This is your magazine and we want you to enjoy reading it as much as we
enjoy putting it together.
All the best,
