Editor's Comments

Hello my golfing friends,

While the men fought it out for a share of the richest purse in golf at The Players Championship, the tournament considered by many to be the "fifth major", the ladies contested their first real major tournament, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Annika Sorenstam may now be wishing she had kept her goal,  of winning all 4 majors this year, to herself. Although she stated that publicizing such a bold aim added to her determination to achieve it, in hindsight perhaps it would have been prudent to have kept it to herself until she had at least one or two under her belt. Hopefully her disappointment won't result in reduced resolve when it comes to competing for the remaining majors later in the season.

Meanwhile, at the TPC at Sawgrass we were treated to the usual helping of great golf and tense excitement served up by The Players Championship. Although recent form shows that the vast majority of winners of this event have previously won at least one major, I'm sure we'll see this year's young Australian winner, Adam Scott, go on to do it the other way round. I, for one, will be very surprised if he doesn't progress from this and start winning major tournaments in the very near future. Check out his career so far in this week's Player Profile.

We've had to put up with an uncharacteristically large amount of rain here in Tenerife over the last couple of weeks and if the weather where you are hasn't been too great either, you may want to take a look at our Golf Holiday Destination and Golf Course Review this week which feature the Caribbean island of Aruba and its championship quality course, Tierra del Sol.

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,

Andy Smith
