Back again for week 7.

Danny Lee ,an amateur from New Zealand, and the reigning US Amateur Champion won the European Tour event the Johnnie Walker Classic in Australia.Lee,birdied the final two holes and four of his last six for a one stroke victory.

Loren Roberts birdied three of his last four holes to win the Ace Group Classic on the Champions Tour. He defeated Gene Jones by one stroke. For Roberts it was his first win since June 2008

Steve Stricker had a two stroke lead going into the 18th but bogied the hole while Phil Mickelson birdied the 16th and 17th and parred the 18th to win the Northern Trust Openfor the second year in a row. The victory was Phil's 35th career win.

By now, everyone knows that Tiger Woods will make his return next week at Accenture Match Play Championships. There will be no end to the anticipation of Tiger returning. Tiger felt it was time and he is ready to comeback. After his break with longtime sponser Buick, Tiger will be sporting an AT&T golf bag this season. AT&T is the sponser for Tiger's event in Washington DC

It is going to be interesting to see Tiger back and if there is any rust on his game. With Phil winning this week is ready to step up and take on all comers?

The LPGA as well as the Nationwide Tour had the week off.

Next week the ladies are in Thailand,the Nationwide Tour goes Australian, the Champions Touris off and PGA has the Accenture and the Mayakoba Golf Classic, for the Europeans that did not make the Accenture there is the Indonesia Open.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Your center of gravity is very important keep your center of gravity the same and your headwill stay still. If you keep both of your feet in the same position throughout your swing your center of gravity will be stable.
