Top Five Reasons Why Geoff Ogilvy Won At CA Championship
To excel at a pro golfer, several things come into play. First you have to be a great ball striker with a great short game. But thats only half of your battle, as the game of golf is indeed a mental one. There is so much to say too about course management…in the words of Kenny Rogers “know when to hold dem and when to fold dem”. So, after Tiger ran out of real estate at the Doral, Ogilvy continued to put up serious stats. In the end, after rain delay forced play to continue on Monday, the CA Championship crown a new prince. That prince is Geoff Ogilvy. Ogilvy who was born on June 11, 1977 in Adelaide, Australia turned pro in 1988 and earned his European tour card that same year. He won his first major at the 2006 US Open after Phil Mickelson faltered, giving up a two shot lead with three holes to go. Geoff who claims to be related to royalty, did everything right this week in blue-blooded fashion, forcing Tiger to come from behind. So what exactly did Geoff do this week at Doral…here goes.
> He led the field in Greens in Regulation;
> Carded only one bogey in the 72 holes;
> Sand saves were right on target;
> Chipped well;
> Par putts were valuable.
Congrats to the Aussie…and thats dascoop!!!
