Preview of Next Issue

As we return to "business as usual" after last week's major event, the PGA Tour heads down the road to South Carolina for the MCI Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head Island. The course is short by today's standards, just under 7000 yards, but the fairways are narrow and the greens are small, so it is still a respectable challenge. Davis Love III has won this event five times already, including last year, and rest assured that he'll be looking for his sixth win this week.

The European Tour stages a new event, the Open de Sevilla at the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla (that's Seville in Southern Spain where the oranges come from if you weren't sure). It is the same course where this year's WGC World Cup will be held in November. Looking through the field, I didn't spot any of the European Tour stars who appeared at Augusta last week but it is sure to be a competitive affair. There is a very strong local Spanish contingent headed by Miguel Angel Jiménez who will be looking for his third title of 2004 after his wins at the Johnnie Walker Classic and the Algarve Open de Portugal.

The Champions Tour players will contest the Blue Angels Classic at The Moors Golf Club, Milton, Florida. Bob Gilder will be defending his title.

The LPGA Tour is at the Las Vegas Country Club this week for the 5th Takefuji Classic. Of the 4 previous winners, Candie Kung (2003) and Lorie Kane (2001) are in the field, while Annika Sorenstam (2002) and Karrie Webb (2000) are absent.
