In an update from via his Twitter account Geoff Ogilvy officially has withdrawn from the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. It’s not all an island paradise for players over there. Ogilvy received 12 stitches after a run in with the reef (he should have waited until after he won the tournament to have any fun). He was looking for his 3rd straight win at Kapalua but due to his injury this is no longer an option. It will be up to players such as Graeme McDowell, Stuart Appleby, and Ernie Els to take the crown.
In other news the African Open is finally underway after a weather delay. It is Brandon Pieters who leads after he completed his first round with a 66.
