Golfers Delight: Last Rounds, please

Last Rounds, please

Well, it's the end of the 2005 season and oddly enough, the upcoming HSBC Champions Tournament in Shanghai is promoted as the first tournament of the 2006 season. Anyway, with the best players of the european tour Colin Montgomerie and Michael Campbell and the best players in the world Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh this event should be worth the 5 Mio. Dollars in prize money. More information can be found here and here.

Back in the US we have the Franklin Templeton Shootout taking place on the premises of the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida.
Hosted by Greg "The Shark" Norman, 12 two-man teams play in a mixed-format of modified alternate shot, better ball, and scramble. See pairings and tee-times here. Hank Kuehne and Jeff Sluman are last years title holders. The odd duo with the texan longhitter and the routined shot maker have to be factored in also this year for the prize money of 630.000 U-Dollar.

On the European Challenge Tour the 156 players fight for their ticket to the European Tour for 2006 - only the Top 30 will get the playing permit. The Final Qualifying Stage takes place at The San Roque Club in Cadiz, Spain.

As for me, I will play my last tournament for this year on sunday at Schloss Wilkendorf. Last chance to scrape some digits off the handicap. Wish me luck!
