and No. 1 again,
Tseng Storms To Victory
Hewitt: Looking Out For No. 1
Luke Donald regained the top spot Sunday
in the Official World Golf Ranking Game Of
Just two weeks after Ulsterman Rory
McIlroy wrested honors from Englishman
Donald, the once and future No. 1 struck back
with a Sunday 66 followed by a playoff birdie
on the first extra hole to win the Transitions
Championship and ascend once again.
“Enjoy the view,” Donald tweeted to McIlroy
after the Honda Classic.
These words were left unspoken: It might
not last long.
The three players beaten in the playoff? Jim
Furyk, Sang-Moon Bae and Robert Garrigus.
The most disappointed man when the dust
cleared? Ernie Els.
Els is still looking for his invite to next
month’s Masters. He led by a shot with two to
play in regulation and bogeyed both of them.
In Spain, the European Tour finally found
its way back to the continent. Julien Quesne,
holding his nerve down the stretch, won in
Andalucia. The 31-year-old Quesne is French
and almost completely unknown outside his
birthplace of Le Mans and his hometown of
Tours. Now the rest of the Euro golf world
knows his last name rhymes with Cain and he
is clearly able.
Finally, this from the wacky world of Tiger
Woods: In the latest pre-publication snippet
ahead of the release of
The Big Miss
this month, teacher Hank Haney confesses
to how his yen for a popsicle at Woods’ home
froze him with panic. Only time will tell if this
revelation finds its way to the sweet tooth of
the book buying public.
