World’s top three players paired up in Dubai – Woods, Kaymer and Westwood

Wow how about this group?  Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer are paired up Thursday for the first round of the Dubai Desert Classic.  There are all sorts of world ranking implications, depending on where the players finish.  I’ll post the Dubai Desert Classic TV times and channels soon.

Tiger wins regardless of the outcome

Regardless of whether or not Tiger wins this tournament or even makes the cut, he’s the true winner.  He’ll be pocketing a $3 million appearance fee for showing up.

I’d like to save the United Arab Emirates a few bucks and offer myself for this position.  I’d do it for less dough than Tiger.  Let me know.  My clubs are ready.


Tiger drops to #3 in world rankings – Martin Kaymer now #2

Kaymer now ranked #2

After winning in Abu Dhabi at the HSBC Championship, Martin Kaymer leapfrogged Tiger Woods to #2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.  Tiger officially drops to #3.

Kaymer lapped the field by eight shots at -24.  The closest competitor was Rory McIlroy at -16.  Rounding out the top four were Retief Goosen and Graeme McDowell.   That is a heck of a top four.  The PGA Tour doesn’t have that kind of firepower playing this week.

World Golf Ranking Needs Tweaking?

I’ve posted this before and I’ll post it again.  I still find it amazing that Tiger hasn’t won a tournament since 2009 and he’s still ranked in the top five.  And before you comment, yes I know he built up a huge lead in the points…
