What's Going on In the World of Golf?
PGA Tour -- This week, the PGA Tour is in San Antonio at the Valero Texas Open. Actually, I was in the talks with the people at the Valero about a sponsors exemption and they sounded a little like they were interested but it never came together. Anyway, left-hander Tim Wilkinson is currently leading the tournament at 11-under with Tim Herron and Chris Stroud, with Zach Johnson and Chez Reavie a shot back. A lot of golf fans, including myself, though Johnson wasn't a one hit wonder with the Masters win in '07 but he sure is making us all look stupid. Zach is 125th on the money list, but a good finish this week will obviously move him up. David Duval missed the cut if you're interested.
LPGA Tour -- At the Longs Drugs Challenge a five month pregnant lady was leading after the first day but shot an 80 in the second round to drop out of contention. Lorena Ochoa is three shots back of leader In-Kyung Kim, maybe the best first name I've ever seen. Wow. In-Kyung mania!
Champions Tour -- ♬ Fred Funk, Nick Price, ♬ different verse, same as the first! ♬
Tiger Woods -- He is building his third golf course in Mexico, and his tournament, the AT&T National could move from Maryland to Philadelphia. Aronimink Golf Club in Philly will have their members vote for the move, to give Congressional Country Club some time for renovation for the 2011 U.S. Open.
Seve -- 51-year-old Seve Ballesteros was moved out of intensive care but remains in the hospital for tests to find the reason he was dizzy.
