As the Crowne Plaza Invitational starts getting steam this week. But today’s talk has all been placed in the fact that Tiger Woods will fall from the top 10 in world golf rankings. It has been well over a decade since he first found his way onto that leaderboard in 1997. The top 10 has been very vibrant this season with moves between Martin Kaymer and Lee Westwood at the number 1 position. However, quiet a few golfers also have their eyes on that position including Luke Donald.
This week all eyes are in Texas, I recently learned a new term the Texas Grand Slam reserved for a golfer who wins all 4 Texas tournaments held on the PGA Tour. This includes winning the Shell Houston Open, HP Bryon Nelson Championship, Valero Texas Open, and the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Unfortunately no golfer has actually been awarded this crown but many are in contention including Adam Scott who will complete the Grand Slam if he finds a victory this week.
The Crowne Plaza Invitational has been held at the Colonial Country Club since 1946 which makes it the longest running event on the PGA Tour to be held at the original site.
