Editor's Comments

Hello my golfing friends,

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,

Andy Smith
