  • Like everyone else, I was thrilled to death to learn of Tiger’s decision yesterday that he would be playing in next week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

  • What a roller-coaster ride of a week it was for Phil Mickelson!

  • Another thought on Ogilvy’s swing: He does not take a divot with his irons; the clubhead skims the turf. This contrasts to say, Tiger Woods, and most other PGA Tour players, who cut a nice-sized pelt with their irons.

  • Geoff Ogilvy certainly took a step up in class when he captured his second WGC-Accenture Match Play championship in four years on Sunday.

  • Before I talk about this week’s Honda winner, Y.E. Yang, I wanted to comment about something I saw at the previous week’s Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya – Cancun.

  • Nursing a one-shot lead on the 72nd hole of regulation in Sunday’s Honda Classic, Y.E. Yang laid up on the par-5 but still faced a nail-biting approach shot into a green surrounded by water.

  • Phil Mickelson chipped in from off the green four times in his first 36 holes at last week’s WGC-CA Championship.

  • Retief Goosen admittedly has been struggling with the putter the last few years, so I wasn't surprised to see him experimenting with several different putters at last year's PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

  • Both Tiger Woods and Sean O’Hair admitted to mis-clubbing late in the final round on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, just after the sun went down.

  • Was there ever any doubt?
