|The PGA Tour stays in Florida for the The Players Championship at TPC
Sawgrass. This is one of the richest purses in golf with the winner picking up $1.17
million. Defending champion Davis Love III has been looking like he is due for a win this
season but although there have been multiple winners (including Love 1992 & 2003) they
have never been in consecutive years since the tournament started in 1974. Sawgrass is
renowned as one of the toughest courses on the schedule and The Players Championship
always attracts a top-flight field so this is definitely one to look forwad to.
European Tour returns to Europe for the Madeira Island Open and with most of the big names
off to Sawgrass it looks like a wide open contest.
The LPGA Tour holds the first of its majors this week. The Kraft Nabisco Challenge will
be held at Mission Hills Country Club, Rancho Mirage, California and became one of the
Ladies Major Tournaments back in 1983. Last Year, Annika Sorenstam was edged out by one
stroke by Patricia Meunier-Lebouc but with a 100% win record (2 for 2) this year who is to
say this won't be the first step on her way to achieving her goal of winning all the
majors in one season.
The Champions Tour does not have an event scheduled for this week.
