We start with news that Tiger Woods’ former swing coach Hank Haney has spoken out regarding the Former World Number 1’s decision to miss both the Greenbrier Classic and the Scottish Open in the build up to the Open Championship. Haney, who was part of the team that masterminded Woods dominant performance in 2006, suggested that the 14 time Major Champion “doesn’t care as much as he used to”. Speaking in the Scotsman, Haney went on to say that Open at Hoylake in 2006 was the best ‘ball-striking tournament Woods has ever had’.
To the race for places in the Ryder cup now, and Graeme McDowell’s win in France has certainly helped his chances of securing a trip to Gleneagles. His successful defence in Paris has moved him up to 10th on the European points list, just under nine-hundred thousand points behind the fourth and final automatic spot. He’ll certainly be hoping his run of good form catches the eye of Captain Paul McGinley.
And finally, this week sees the start of the Women’s British Open held at Royal Birkdale. ISPS HANDA European Masters winner, IK Kim, will be hoping she can carry her form to the 3rd Major of the ladies season, and she told Golfing World exclusively just how much she’s looking forward to it: SOT “I watched the British open since I was very little and it’s the same as the US open or any other tournament. So unique and I feel like I’m playing… I played in St. Andrews, that was my first British Open or second.. and I feel like; I don’t know how I got into playing golf but it was definitely worth it”
