Woosnam and Faldo Take Games to Singapore


Major title holders Ian Woosnam and Nick Faldo headline this weeks Caltex Singapore Masters at the Laguna National Golf and Country Club near Changi.
There, the two European regulars will join up with some of Asias best as the European Tour aligns itself with Davidoff Asian Tour for the co-sanctioned $900,000 event.
While future Ryder Cup captain Sam Torrance has pulled out of the tournament due to knee problems, Faldo and Woosnam will compete alongside Argentinas Ricardo Gonzalez and Eduardo Romerez as well as Costantino Rocca, Alex Cjeka and Jean Van de Velde.
Richard S. Johnson, the winner of the ANZ Championship two weeks ago in Australia is also scheduled to play as are Asian regulars Wei-Tze Yeh, Charlie Wi and Ted Oh.
Unfortunately, last years defending champion will not be in attendance. Vijay Singh won the 2001 edition thanks to a final-round 68 that saw him end two strokes above the field at 21-under-par. The victory was Singhs second in as many weeks as the Fijian had titled at the Malaysian Open just one week earlier.
This year, he will miss the event due to its confliction with the WGC-Accenture World Match Play Championship at the LaCosta Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif.
Make sure not to miss all four rounds of the Singapore Masters only on The Golf Channel.
