Seve Ballesteors

Seve Ballesteros at Augusta National

I’m sad to report that Seve Ballesteros’ condition has taken a severe turn for the worst.  His family is caring for him in the northern Spanish town of Pedrena.

“The Ballesteros family informs that Seve’s neurological condition has suffered a severe deterioration.  The family will inform accordingly about any change in his health condition and takes this opportunity of thanking everyone for the support that both Seve and his own family have been receiving during all this time.”

HOG best wishes to Seve and his family.  I’m among millions of fans who love Seve and send our most positive energy his way.

Bubba Watson

Bubba has 3 wins in 10 months, leads FedEx Cup

If you are a pro golfer on tour and your last name starts with a “W,” you had a great chance of winning this past weekend.  Both Bubba Watson and Lee Westwood won this week.  You may also have had a great chance if you play Ping golf clubs.

Bubba Watson

No secret that I’m a big fan of Bubba Watson.  This self taught, coach free player with the unorthodox swing has notched three wins on Tour in less than a year.

Following the two hole playoff yesterday at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Bubba has moved to #10 in the world and #1 in the 2011 FedEx Cup standings.

I know Lee Westwood is ranked #1 again, but it may be time to start the “best current player without a major” discussion with Bubba as the subject.  No doubt Watson is at least the best player from the USA right now.

There’s parity in golf now. Is that good?

Written by: Tony Korologos | Monday, April 25th, 2011

Is it better for golf to have dominant players like Tiger Woods or Greg Norman ranked #1 for weeks, months or years?  Or is it better to have what seemingly is a weekly change of the #1 ranked player in the world?  I remember the NFL and NBA wanted parity and they got it, for better or worse.   Haven’t decided myself just yet.

Lee Westwood reclaims #1

The only change in the top 15 world golf rankings are in the #1 and #2 spots.  Lee Westwood has moved up to #1 from #2, following his victory in the Indonesian Open on the Asian Tour.

Martin Kaymer moves to #2

Martin Kaymer moved from #1 to #2, after having the #1 position for eight weeks.
