Here’s what’s happening this week in the world of golf.
More Controversy Swirls Around Tiger
Last week more than a few eyebrows were raised around the golf world when reporter and commentator Brandel Chamblee insinuated Tiger Woods was a cheater in an article giving grades out to players for the 2013 season.
Not surprisingly, there was a lot of people on both sides of the comments. Now Chamblee is backtracking.
World’s Deadliest Golf Tournament?
No doubt you’ve played in a few golf tournaments before, but only a handful of people can claim they have participated in the Elfego Baca Golf Shoot.
The tournament is set in the rugged desert of New Mexico and involves a lot more than worrying about your slice.
A California golf course is suffering from some unwanted new guests, a pack of wild pigs. The course management at the Almaden Country Club located in San Jose have encountered a roving pack of wild pigs running amok on the course.
It can certainly make for an interesting experience when a 300 pound pig with tusks come charging at the tee box!
Lydia Ko Makes it Official
The teen aged Kiwi phenom has been the topic of quite a few question marks this off season after her incredible performance in 2013 on the tour. This week, though, she has made it official and will turn pro.
It should be very exciting to see how the LPGA fares with her on the tour.
