The man who owns the most worldwide
victories in 2012 is also the owner of a
surname that best describes one of the
qualities a player needs to win even once in
the highly competitive global game.
Branden Grace, of South Africa, fresh out
of Q-School, has three European Tour wins
after his triumph at the Volvo China Open.
No one will think he’s the hottest player on
the planet but just consider the record.
The big news of the day from Hawaii
is that Yani Tseng did not win. In fact, she
placed all the way back into a tie for 10th
on the LPGA Tour. Instead, Ai Miyazato, who
had two runner-up finishes, a fifth and a
sixth thus far this year, won instead – and
Deep in the heart of Texas, the top PGA
Tour players stayed away in droves from
the Valero Texas Open because they think
TPC San Antonio is too hard. Imagine
that, a championship course for the
best players in the world would have the
temerity to be difficult.
Ben Curtis, the 2003 Open Championship
winner, entered anyway and beat those who
turned up to be beaten for his first victory
Meanwhile in Indonesia, Lee Westwood
– who has one fewer major than Curtis –
didn’t appear as if he had to beat anyone
for another meaningless victory on the
defenseless Asian Tour.
By the way, Curtis and Westwood are
back in next year’s Masters and Grace is not.
At least not yet.
