It never ceases to amaze me that every week there always seems to be a
common factor in the outcomes of the US PGA Tour event and the PGA European Tour event.
This week is no exception with both winners being great revival stories by over forty
years old players. At the British Masters, Barry Lane, 43, came back from ten years
without a win to record his fifth European Tour victory, whilst in North Carolina at the
Wachovia Championship, Joey Sindelar, 46, came back from an even longer victory drought of
14 years to collect his 7th PGA Tour title. Both of them have been great players in their
heyday and it's good to see them showing us all that sometimes experience wins out over
youth. Joey Sindelar is featured in our weekly Player Profile
spot this week.
In last week's issue I started a discussion about the way that the
Official World Golf Rankings are calculated. Following the response I received I have
written a full article on the subject of World
Rankings (see the regular Rankings page) and anyone who wishes to reprint it on their
own website is welcome to do so. Also, whether you agree or disagree, I welcome any
comments you may have on the subject.
Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback on our new weekly cartoon strips, "Off the Cart Path", which are being
drawn exclusively for Golfing Weekly by Roy Doty. Some of you mentioned
that the 4-across format didn't really fit in with the layout of the magazine so we have
changed it to a 2x2 format for easier reading without opening a new window.
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,
