Tiger Woods won the Buick Tournament again this past week end and doing it in style by shooting four 66’s to win by three strokes. It is amazing to watch him during these tournaments as he stays so focused on his game. This made him 50 wins and only being 30 years of age beating out all other famous golfers to win this many this quick. I enjoy watching him play as he is so methodical and great at execution of most every shot. No other player came close as Tiger hung on to his lead during the entire four days of play.
Sherri Steinbauer won the Weetabix Women’s British Open which made it her seventh win on Tour. She was seven under and this was her first win since 2004. Annikan Sorestan and Michelle Wie did not come close as Michelle has yet to win since turning Pro. The ladies play seemed to go back and forth until Sherri came out ahead on the last day. The course did not seem as tough as when the Men played the British Open which where on hard dried fairways.
We hope Michelle Wie the best as she is a great player, she just needs more experience at playing at a higher level. Once she gets that first win, I think she will come out on top many more times in the future. We wish her well.
Tiger has all the talent and dedication to compete at this higher level for many years to come. I am sure he will have his bad days, but he knows how to make things work for his benefit. Tiger seems above most other golfers but he remains composed and sure of himself which makes for a true winner.
As you watch these Pro's both ladies and men you will learn a lot from their excellent dedication to golf. They use their time wisely at practicing and working with their trainers and instructors. This is what makes a truly great player. I am sure Michelle will find herself soon if only her handlers would have her concentrate on just the women's Pro circuit. My trying out playing with the men does not prove your ability to win. She needs to work hard and play only with the women's pro circuit and after winning there it should improve her game.
