Looking at the last couple of week's results it would appear that a
good way of helping to predict the winner of professional golf tounaments might be to see
which players have got a birthday coming up. Last week, Steve Flesch won on his birthday
and this week's winners include Scott Drummond (birthday last Saturday) and Hale Irwin
(this Thursday). Not very scientific, I know, but it's another one of those little
coincidences that keep cropping up. Maybe this week's winners will be overweight and
blond, your guess is as good as mine. One thing is for sure, we're in for some great
action with strong fields at all the events this week.
The final deadline for U.S. Open exemptions by virtue of being in the
Official World Golf Ranking top 50 has been reached and details of the outcome can be
found in our article on the "Other Golf News" page.
That's about it for this week. 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,
