|Looking at the fields for this week's events it would appear that Tiger,
Vijay, Ernie and a few of the other players at the top of the world rankings are all
taking the week off so I'm looking forward to some competitive golf from the strong fields
of players who are working this week.
The PGA Tour stays in Florida for the Honda
Classic at The Country Club at Mirasol, Palm Beach Gardens. The strong field for this
event includes at least six previous winners although the only player to win the Honda
Classic twice in recent history is Mark Calcavecchia (1998 & 1987) so maybe we will
have another new name to add to the winners list. Personally, I fancy Mark Calcavecchia,
Davis Love III and Fred Couples to figure in the final outcome.
The European Tour stays in the Gulf for the Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club. Miguel
Angel Jimenez of Spain looks like the one to watch but a large portion of the field have
had a week to get used to the Middle East climate and it will be interesting to see who
comes out on top.
After a week south of the border, the Champions Tour returns to California for the SBC
Classic at Valencia Country Club.
The LPGA Tour starts their 2004 schedule this week at the Welch's/Fry's Championship,
Randolph North Golf Course, Tucson, Arizona.
