Els Won The Open from the Behind

I didn't get a chance to watch a whole lot of The Open, but Ernie Els ended up winning his 2nd after Adam Scott fell apart at the end. I was actually pulling for Els since the start and he came through! Every time I see him golf, it just amazes me at how softly he swings, and how he hits so far. He got the nickname "The Big Easy" for a reason. Ernie Els jumped from 33rd to 7th in the FedEx Cup standings with his first win in 2012

Haven't Posted in a While

I just noticed that I haven't posted in a while. Haven't had a chance for the past week, been super busy. I plan to get back into the blog this week for the John Deere Classic. Looks like a good field.

What this means for Tiger Wooda

As we all know, Tiger Woods became the first golfer in the 2012 season to have 3 wins under his belt. Bo van Pelt really challenged him right to the finish in the at&t National. I think this has really helped boost Tiger's confidence and will help him along the way in the FedEx Cup, which he is now currently in first place for the standings.

Woods had a few great scrambling opportunities and shots from behind trees and in the woods where he manged to save par. I will admit I was impressed with his play this weekend.

He hasn't been very consistent this year. One week he will win, and the other he will be +7 or so. Tiger is really either one of the extremes. I have noticed that he also rarely hits his driver, but when he really  needs that shot, he will deliver. Tiger Woods has come a long way since the start of this season, and he is always interesting to watch when the game is on the line.
