It's "Captain Monty" now . "It’s not just an honor but a huge responsibility as well,” Colin Montgomerie said Wednesday after being chosen to captain Europe’s team for next year’s Ryder Cup in Wales."It is important we do everything we can to claim back the Ryder Cup in Wales in 2010.”
Phil Mickelson, Anthony Kim, and J.B.Holmes all enjoyed the big game at home as they failed to make the cut at the FBR Open this week in Arizona. Kenny Perry,birdied the 17th to take a one stroke lead, but bogeyed the 18th to go to a playoff with Charley Hoffman. In the playoff both players struggled thru but Kenny Perry sunk a birdie putt on the 3rd playoff hole to take home the victory. It's Perry's 13th career win and his first this year.
Rory Mcllroy the 19 year old Irishman, won his first European Pro event by taking the DubaiDesert Classic by one stroke over Justin Rose. Congratulations!

THE TIP OF THE WEEK
Always aim at a target
A simple golf tip but one that gets overlooked : Aiming at a target during practice will make you a better golfer and carry over to your golf game.When you're on the practice range, don't just see how far you can hit the ball. Pick a target and aim for that target. First of all it will make your golf practice more fun and challenging.
Secondly - that's the object of the game. To hit the ball where you want to hit it. You'll improve just as much when practicing the short game as when practicing the long game.
I'm feeling a bit under the weather this week, so I will cut it short for now. Be sure to check out my podcast at:
Until next time.
