No doubt that the HSBC Championship is going to be quite a task for the judges to decide who walks away with the title after Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen both stood up to the number one spot after the first round. The 32-year-old ace showcased an impressive seven-fewer than 65 and went on to share Louis Oosthuizen, the South African golfer’s place at the leader-board.
Adam Scott played quite neatly in Boston but his putting was so disastrous that he couldn’t win in the final round. South African golfer Louis Oosthuizen topped the leaderboard when the third round ended and Scott was 12 shots behind him. Now that is a long gap!
Scott proved to be totally in control with ball striking this week. The world no. 9 held the first place in striking the ball. Not only was he good in ball striking, but he was placed at the third spot in driving distance and greens in regulation. Again he held the fifth position in shot accurateness and closeness to the hole.
Although it might come as a surprise to golf fans around the world, but American golfer Phil Mickelson has been enduring a tough time with his game of late, struggling to come up with the goods on most of the occasions. However, this is not the first time that the lefty has been struggling with his swing; still, he has been going through one of the most barren stretches of his long career over the last two months.
Twenty seven year old and former world number one Martin Kaymer has announced this week that he intends to play in the BMW PGA championship.
The German golfer is said to be excited about the competition has he takes the field in what will be a tough contest as golfers such as Luke Donald, Ian pouter , Lee Westwood and US Open winner Rory McIlroy will be joining Kaymer on the field of play.
Former world number one Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson have both confirmed that they will be a part of the lineup of the Memorial Tournament at the end of this month, which will be their only other professional assignment in May.
The tournament will see Woods making an effort to better his last result at the US PGA Players Championship where he finished well behind the field in a tournament where he excelled previously, in preparation for the US Open that takes place in June in San Francisco.
Former world number one golfer Martin Kaymer has insisted that being the number one player in the world is a very big deal, implying that you are the best golfer in the world and all of the others are after your spot at the top of the pile.
Kaymer became the world’s number one golfer last year after he finished second to Luke Donald in the World Golf Championships: Accenture Match Play Championships last February but he had already secured the top spot after his Quarter Final win and the final hardly mattered for him.
Steve Stricker has not been having the taste of success and victory of late, but has sure made a mark in the golfing circuit with his victory at the Tournament of three.
His performance in this tournament was not outstanding from the beginning as well and was actually going downhill when a sudden turn of events changed the entire game. Two birdies, one after the other, were good enough to help Steve gain his focus and concentration and he finally managed to end up winning the game.
Australian Adam Scott finished a brilliant four days of golf after he won the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational 17 with a bogey free round of sixty five.
