Well after deciding that posting from seven time zones away when you haven’t seen one shot of a tournament may not be the best idea, I’m back with this week’s What It Means.
Luke Donald Wins the Accenture Match Play Championship: The victory is Donald’s third of his PGA Tour career. That may shock some people. For such a sweet swinger of the golf club he’s had little success on the PGA Tour. He’s fallen into a very large group of promising, consistent, steady players who win occasionally but just seem to not have that breakthrough (World Golf Championship, a major, etc) win to go along with past success. Maybe this is that victory for Donald. He’s got all the talent in the world.
Martin Kaymer Moves to #1 in the World: We know he’s got the golf swing to get it done. Last year’s PGA Championship showed he’s got the putting stroke to succeed under pressure. And this week, by getting to the Championship match, Kaymer’s great 2010 paid off. He will be the #1 ranked player in the world come tomorrow morning. It was inevitable that all those wins from 2010 would be parlayed into the number one ranking eventually, and tomorrow is the day.
I watched almost all of his matches this week. He’s got loads of talent. Martin Kaymer is here to stay.
Tiger’s Early Exit: It’s a process. It’s a very long process. Learning a new golf swing takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight. It doesn’t happen in a blink of an eye. It’s a long process. This will take lots of time. Be patient people. Tiger Woods will come back. I honestly believe that. But it may not be in 2011. It very well may be in 2012.
