Haas leads after second round at Tour Championship

Jay Haas is almost 51 years old, but you’d never know it by the way he’s playing at the Tour Championship.
Haas, who is 26 days short of his 51st birthday, fired a 4-under-par 66 to claim a two-shot lead at 7-under 138 after the second round Friday at East Lake Golf Club.
Haas, who shared the first round with Darren Clarke and Jerry Kelly at 3-under-par, got his round going with an eagle on No. 9. He holed his chip from 27 yards out of the intermediate rough to finish the front nine at two-under-par.
On the back nine, he seized the lead with an 8-foot birdie putt on the par-5 No. 15 and then sunk a slick downhill birdie from 13 feet to close out his round on No. 18 for a 33 on the back nine.
Woods, who started the day at 2-over-par 72, collected three birdies on front nine — on Nos. 3, 5 and 9 — to bolt into contention at 1-under-par. Then, he birdied 14, 15 and 16 to post the best back nine of the day at 32.
His most spectacular birdie came on No. 16, which played as the toughest hole Friday. Woods’ drive ended up way right in the rough, but his second shot into the green set up a 13-footer for birdie — the only one of the day at 16.
Vijay Singh, shooting for his 10th victory of the season, shot a 3-over 73 and is nine shots back at 142. Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els, among the pre-tournament favorites, are 10 shots back at 143.

Singh bids to make it an elite PGA foursome

Nelson, Hogan, Snead only golfers with 10-win years

The list begins with Byron Nelson and ends with Sam Snead. Ben Hogan is right down the middle, just like when he played.

No Arnold Palmer. No Jack Nicklaus. No Tiger Woods.

 Vijay Singh can join the short list of players with 10 or more victories in a PGA Tour season. Singh enters the season-ending Tour Championship, which begins today at East Lake Golf Club, with nine victories. It's Singh's one and only chance to become the fourth man to reach double digits, because he needed four victories in his past five starts to get to this point.

"I never knew about that record," Singh said. "I mean, it would be an incredible thing to win 10 in a season. People don't win one and go through their whole career. Being in the same boat and the same page as Snead and Hogan and just comparing against them, it just -- really, you don't have words to describe it."

Singh is a relentless range rat who also works out twice a day, six days a week. Despite his seemingly indestructible constitution, he admits he has begun to feel the strain.

"I need to get to bed earlier now than what I did middle of the season," Singh said. "Come 10, 10:30, I'm done. That's when you know that you're getting tired at the end of the season. I'm glad this is the last tournament."

Qatar Masters To Be Co-Sanctioned By Asian And European Tours 

The Qatar Masters will be jointly sanctioned for the first time by the Asian Tour and European Tour next year. This groundbreaking development will ensure a strong presence of the region's top stars in the elite field as 44 Asian Tour members will line up alongside the best from Europe.

The eighth Qatar Masters, which will be held from March 10-13, 2005, has a prize fund of US$1.5 million with golfers battling for the magnificent Pearl Trophy.  This is also the first event in the Middle East to be sanctioned by both the Asian and European Tours.

Local Golf Scene
We invite at golf related announcements, events from the local community.

Please send us any news of your own local golf activity.
It could be a tournament among friends or a major charity event.
 
Send us any announcements that you wish to make.
It could be congratulations messages or simply a unique or special experience somewhere in Myanmar.
 
There is just one simple rule.  It has to be about or during playing golf.
Golf 101   

Here's are the 8 characteristics of champion golfers:
1. Focus and Concentration.
2. Abstract thinking.
3. Emotional Stability.
4. Dominance.
5. Tough-mindedness.
6. Confidence.
7. Self-sufficient.
8. Balanced state (not tense but not completely relaxed either).

Golfers recognize the challenge of the game.  It is this challenge that hooks people on the game in spite of great frustration.

A lower handicap is the
Mount Everest of golf.  To climb it because it is there.  To shoot the lowest round possible is the ultimate goal.

Why is golf so hard?

1. The ball just sits there.  In tennis, basketball or baseball, the ball is moving.  You HAVE to react to it.  In golf, the ball waits for you and your internals get in the way.
When you begin to think about your swing, how you are holding your shoulders, where your arms are, who you are playing, what people watching you are thinking, you give yourself NO chance to focus.

2. Golf has significant down time.  There is too much time to contemplate the game.  Tennis players don't have this challenge.
The minutes between each shot add up to hours in an afternoon.  Golfers are really good at beating themselves up.

3. There is absolutely no limit on perfection.  The more you know about the game, the worse it can be.  There's an old saying about a little bit of knowledge being dangerous.  It certainly applies here.

4. Golf can be physically draining.  A round of golf can take 4 or more hours.  So one must conserve and protect his physical and mental energies while playing.

When you play golf are you quiet and focused on your game or are you warm and outgoing?
Studies show that quiet and focused players do better.

Every golfer has a physical set up routine.  You need a mental one as well.

That's where you put your game on automatic pilot.

All of these steps follow your calculations on which club to use and where you want to direct your shot.
