Trevor Immelman won the US Masters early this morning South African time. Although he had a bumpy fourth round (so did everybody else) he held on and beat Tiger by 3 shots.
This is the first time since, I think, 1976 that somebody won the US Masters leading from the start. Trevor was the leader at the end of each and every round. Another interesting fact is that it is the first tournament this year that Tiger entered and did not win. He got damn close but Trevor did enough in the first 3 rounds to keep him out.
And how about the Stormers? Lets hope they can keep it up in their next couple of games and move up to at least 4th on the log to play in the semi’s. Here is the log after this weekend’s games. As you can see, about nothing between 3rd and 8th position on the log.
Was a really interesting sports weekend from my perspective.
The Stormers won their second game on the trot away from home. Who would have thought this. For a team that blows hot and cold, this is a good start to their tour in Australasia. Lets just hope they keep it up but to be honest, the first 2 games was against weaker teams.
Tiger Woods did it again by winning the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational with a birdie in the 72nd hole. Woods tied Ben Hogan with the third most PGA TOUR career victories with 64. The amazing thing is that we are in March already and Tiger has not lost this year yet. Every tournament that he has started this year, he has won. This must be real scary for other players when they see his name on the entry list.
Formula 1 stated this weekend in Melbourne, Australia and what a disastrous weekend for the defending champions, Ferrari and Kimi Raikkonen. The race was won by Hamilton in his McLaren. I just hope this is not an indication of the season to come, since then it is going to be a very boring season. At least the BMW team did show some improvement from last year.
And the Proteas (South Africa cricket team) moved to the number 1 spot on the ODI world rankings going past Australia. I do not know whether that really means anything since they got there by beating the worst test team, Bangladesh, in the world. But I suppose it is the same for all teams so it is something.
