International Scene
Spain's Jimenez wins Golf HK Open
Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez carded a four-under 66 in the final round to total 14-under 266 to win the Omega Hong Kong Open, his third victory in Asia this year.
World number six Harrington, who was hoping to become the first person in 40 years to successfully defend the title - Taiwan's Hsieh Yung-yo did it in 1964 - had a birdie putt of 20 feet to force a play-off but rolled his attempt short in front of a massive gallery. With Sunday's win, the 40-year-old golfer recorded a total of five wins this year. Only one other golfer has done better than him this year - Fiji's Vijay Singh on the American PGA Tour with nine victories. Jimenez noted that he is 40, while Singh is 41. So, life does start at 40!
 

MICKELSON CLAIMS GRAND SLAM GLORY

Phil Mickelson confessed he was amazed to join the exclusive '59' club - the best score in professional stroke play history - after winning the PGA's Grand Slam of Golf in Hawaii.

The Masters champion began the day three shots behind Retief Goosen but stormed to a five-shot victory over Vijay Singh, the PGA Championship winner, who carded a second successive 66.


Dodd on top in China Open

Wales' Stephen Dodd shot a 2-under 70 in cold and rainy conditions to take a three-stroke lead in the China Open in Shanghai, China, the first event of the 2005 PGA European Tour schedule.
Playing in rain and gusting wind with a low temperature of 36 degrees, Dodd had four birdies and two bogeys to finish the second round at 6-under 138. He chipped in for a birdie on No. 8 and made a 15-foot birdie putt on the 15th.
Denmark's Soren Hansen (71), England's Matthew King (73) and South Korea's Chung Joon (72) were tied for second in the tournament co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour.

This Week

Emotional Stability

When Bob Murphy changed his emotional response to his golf game, great things happened. He went on to win four times in 1995.
Emotions affect our desire to drive for show, putt for dough,
and hit the best approach shots possible.
Everyone has seen people lose it on the course. Balls, clubs, golf bags end up in the water. People mangle their Big Bertha drivers after blowing both another drive and their cool.
Everything you do on the course is affected by your emotions.
The best golfers are in control of their emotions.
They don't ignore them. They don't pretend they are not there.
They acknowledge them and deal with them.
What are some of the factors involved in emotions:

1. Expectations. Tiger Woods does not drive every shot with perfect accuracy. One of my clients came in all excited on the day of the British Open after Tiger lost his ball on the first hole. "Today I played a shot as well as Tiger."
Do you have realistic expectations on the course? What is driving those expectations?
2. Perfectionism. Nobody's perfect! If you expect your golf game to be perfect, you are bound to be disappointed.
3. Injuries. If you play with an injury, not only will you stress your body, you may also stress your game. Take care of your body to play your best golf.
4. Tiredness. Golf is a mind game. You need to recharge your mental batteries on the links. Take a break. Smell the breeze.

5. Personal Issues. If there is "stuff" going on in your life - your job, your home life, etc. Don't be surprised if it affects your game. Hey, you're human. The more you deal with the issues, the quicker your handicap is going to head down.

If you are not managing your emotions and stress, they are going to manage you.

Only regular work on your emotions is going to produce the results that you want on the course.

Most of the great golfers have hobbies aside from golf. Do you?

See you next week.


AH.... SWEET GOLF.......

* There are three ways to improve your golf game: take lessons, practice constantly --or start cheating.
* Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy because it cannot count, criticize or laugh.
* There's no game like golf: you go out with three friends, play eighteen holes, and return with three enemies.

Caddie Selection

The golfer called one of the caddies and said, "I want a caddy who can count and keep the score. What do 3 and 4 and 5 come to?"
"11 sir" said the caddy.

"Good, you'll do perfectly."


Happy Golfing,
