This weekend created some big changes in the world rankings of golf. Only a month into the season and Martin Kaymer has bumped Tiger Woods out of yet another position. Kaymer had an incredible weekend in Abu Dhabi, he lead the pack shooting 6 under 66 to win the championship by 8 shots. His closest competitors were Rory Mcllroy, Graeme McDowell, and Retief Goosen. All worthy competitors were no match for Kaymer, according to McIlroy he was playing out of this world-and oh yes I agree. It was the biggest winning margin and lowest total score in the history of the tournament. Make no mistake he clearly has earned his seat as #2 golfer in the world. It was time for Tiger to drop a few places in the ranking, he hasn’t won a tournament since 2009. Phil had a bit harder time in the Middle East placing 37th and dropping his ranking to 6th in the world allowing Graeme McDowell to finish in 4th.
Here is in the U.S. after an impressive showing at the Bob Hope Classic Jhonattan Vegas clenched his first PGA Tour victory. This 26 year old rookie made not only a name for himself but his country as well. He is the 1st Venezuelan to win a PGA Tour event. After a steady performance he stayed ahead of defending champion Bill Haas who came in 2nd. Even though there were more eyes focusing on the European Tour this weekend Jhonattan Vegas still had a worthy showing this weekend and I’m excited to see how he will do the rest of the season.
