i think monty's best chance will be at royal liverpool next year, his skill on the links is superb, and tiger will be punished this ear if he hits the same watyward shots he hit in andrew, there's far more out o bounds at royal liverpool, at any other course tiger would have lost approx 5 shots with the amount of times he went way off course but was lucky to land on a hole next to the one he was playing rather than be out of bounds

Nice to see David Duval finally find some form and shoot two rounds in the 60's in Japan.I'm not a really a fan of his,but the poor guy has had a tough few years missing cut after cut so hopefully the good form will continue on the weekend.

It certainly helps when you play when there is no wind on that course as the second round scores show.Allenby 9 shots differance,Scott 7,and what about poor Spencer Levin had the course record in the first round before Allenby came in and shoots 77 in the second round.

Robert Allenby leads by 5 shots with 1 round remaining but is no certainty of playing the final round:

Talking of the wind:

Robert Allenby has won his second Australian Open Title with a one shot win today.Allenby shot a 77 in the final round but it was enough to take the title.The wind blew again and the hand injury certainly not helping, Allenby started with four bogeys on the opening six holes but held it together enough on the back nine to win the championship and the cheque for $225,000.

snuck out today really bad conditions but at least it wasn't raining, course was a bit marshy, had a brutal front nine scratched 4 holes only scored 11 points, played well on the back scored 24. i hate the way you need so much time to find your game again when you've been away for ages,

Don't you hate that.It's mind boggling how you can play so differently in one round.I do it so often myself.

 :)Good morning fellow golfers from The American Midwest-USA:

   Interesting problem which seems to never change...

   For me it's remembering what club to use for difficult shots close around the green and it always is sand shots when I have not had a chance to practice.

    It's that feel, that hand to eye coordination that just leaves....

     Anyway, how about that skins game yesterday and Fred Funk beating everybody..

    Have a nice one, gang....

Respectfully,

loved the skins game, was rooting for freddie though, but nice to funk win it, as one of the often overlooked golfers, he's playing some of the best golf of his areer. people like him and jay haas and of course boom boom, are destroying the myth of older golfers can't compete.


reckon so; you just need to practice your wedge shots a little more when on the range, you'll get a feel for your strengths, maybe take a lesson with a pro for just this problem,
the friend i was playing with yesterday has spent hundreds in lessons on driving he' an animal but he can only get the bal a max of 20 yards past me, at which point he's dead in the water as he can't hit  a wedge to save his life; and around the greens can save you loads of shots if its right,

but it's all personal feel and preference, e.g.
if i'm in texas wedge territrory but it's wet or uphill i close over a PW and do a short bump and run. chip the ball with a really short swing, the loft of your pw will encourage run, although it's one of  those shots a lot of people prefer using a putter on.
likewise in summer i'll use three quarter powered pw's and land on the front of the green and run up to the poin if it's at the back, or i'll hit a mickelson punched wedge, ball drills to a stop after a short hop.
but in winter you're better off landing as close as you can and not using mickelsons shot(you'll destroy the green with big spin/plugmarks.

i'd say go to a pro and let him see what you do, take his advice for now, then practice the others shots in the range, come summer you'll have them down, maybe another trip to the pro to iron out any kinks.

trust me i've spent 3 years now working my backside off on the game and i'm only good, but i've found the trips to the range and the pro have really helped. as long as you go to the range to practice shots not just bash the balls.  ;)

More rain again today,looks like it will be a busy weekend for some players.Play starts at 5:30 tomorrow morning.

Quote
Only two managed to complete their second rounds as more than 200mm of rain fell on the course since the start of the tournament.
The rain threw everything into chaos. Players, officials and volunteers were up at 3.30am to prepare for a 5.30 start, but overnight rain meant no play was possible before 7am.
The vagaries of the draw meant that some players, like Luke Hickmott (three under), played only one hole today, while others played as many as 36.
Tempers frayed as grips became slippery and balls hit out of watery lies slewed off the club face at unpredictable angles.
Craig Parry looked to have made a decisive move when he went out in five-under-par 31 and got it to six under by the 12th.
But three bogeys on the run home took the wind out of his sails, and a double bogey in sheeting rain and near darkness just before play was called off did little for his demeanour.
Play will start at 5.30am again tomorrow and the forecast is for improved conditions, giving some hope of completing the second and third rounds in the one day.

ROBERT Allenby fired a closing 67 to win the centenary Australian PGA Championship by one stroke at Coolum today.
Allenby, who also won the Australian Open at Moonah Links last Sunday, birdied the final hole to edge Tasmanian Mathew Goggin, whose brilliant nine-under-par 63 was not quite enough.

Looks like the hand injury troubles may be behind  Allenby if the last two weeks are anything to go by.

West Australian lefty Nick O'Hern leads after the first round of the Australian Masters Golf Tournament.Three shots behind is Robert Allenby who is trying to be the first player ever to win the triple crown of Aussie golf in the same year.He's won the Australian Open and P.G.A in the last two weeks and is well placed after today's first round of the Masters.

Good lunchtime from The American Midwest-USA:

   Hi gang, I was so happy to see in the newspaper that TIGER WOODS won Player of The Year award again this year...

   I also saw where he earned over 80 million dollars for 2005.   

    Now that's a chunk of change for one year on the greatest golf courses in the world...I think he won 5 million for golf and the rest from endorsements..

    Hope you all have a nice lunch in your respective time zones.....a big winter snow storm is on its way here for us in The American Midwest-USA.
