2011 President’s Cup

  • Golf Tour News

The BMW last week was won by Justin Rose, he is one of the hardest guys on tour to caddy for and always gives his caddy a hard time.  His caddy stays for the cash!    He has struggled a little this year, you could never have picked him last week.

This week is the Tour Championship and only has 30 players, it really is the last event for the year for most and signals the countdown to our summer in Australia which will be the biggest in years if not EVER!   I can’t wait!!

Great news also that Geoff Olgivy has now made the Internationals Team below

Jason Day

Adam Scott

Charl Schwartzel

KJ Choi

Ernie Els

YE Yang

Reitef Goosen

Ryo Ishikawa

Kyung-tae Kim

Geoff Olgilvy

The big question is who will Norman pick as his two Captains’ Picks?    For mine he has to pick Allenby & Baddeley, two Melbourne boys who know their way around Royal Melbourne better than every player on both teams!   He surely can’t pick Tim Clark / Vijay, he might think of Camilo Villegas or Louis Oosthuizen… but I can’t see it…   And BTW Norman won’t care what the media say about his picks either!

The US Team is a cracker

Matt Kuchar

Steve Stricker

Dustin Johnson

Phil Mickelson

Nick Watney

Webb Simpson

Bubba Watson

David Toms

Hunter Mahan

Jim Furyk

The Captain – Fred Couples has really only 1 pick, as he has already picked Tiger and rightly so.   Fred has a million players to pick from this year.

Brandt Snedeker

Bill Haas

Bo Van Pelt

Rickie Fowler

Ryan Moore

Just to name a few!

We still have a couple of spots left on our tours if you feel the urge.

Other news around the traps – 16 year old American Lexi Thompson won the LPGA event this week, she has been a star since around 5 years old and does look like she hits it great, she certainly hits it better than 99% of the ladies on tour…  I might even watch her play, can’t stand watching the others…
