Westwood dominates in Thailand
Lee Westwood cruised to a seven-shot victory on Sunday in the Thailand Golf Championship. Westwood wearing FJ Sport and SciFlex set the pace early, opening the tournament with a 12 under par 60 on the Amata Springs course. He then followed the stellar round with an impressive eight-under par 64 to open a 11 shot lead through two rounds of play.
"I've amazed myself really...It's been staggering, it all came together well. It's probably the best I've ever played." Westwood said of his blistering start to the tourney.
Despite his massive lead, Westwood felt the pressure of holding onto it, "I've never had an 11-shot lead before and it was difficult to come out and refocus and reset goals...it's yours to lose really with an 11-shot lead. There was pressure involved. Yesterday, I didn't know how to approach it or handle it." Westwood handled the pressure just closing with a three under par 69 to win by seven shots. The win moves Westwood to number two on the official world golf rankings.Link to this entry!!!!
Poulter Outduels Ogilvy Down Under
Englishman Ian Poulter won the Australian Masters this weekend at the beautiful Victoria Golf Club. Poulter captured the early lead, opening the tournament with a six-under par 65 in benign conditions. He followed that with another under par round of 68 to remain in control of the tourney.
On the third day, Geoff Ogilvy torched his boyhood course shooting an eight-under par 63 to overtake Poulter at the top of the leaderboard.
Playing together in the final pairing on Sunday, Poulter was two strokes back of the Australian with 18 holes to play. Poulter, a tenacious matchplay competitor, fancied his chances despite it being a home game for Ogilvy.
On the first hole, Poulter in custom FJ Icon MyJoys and a SciFlex glove drove the green and sank the 15 foot putt for eagle to tie Ogilvy for the lead. The always honest Ogilvy commented post round on Poulter's eagle at the first, "There were 17 hard holes to play. You obviously want to...increase your lead, but there is not much you can do when a guy hits a great shot and makes an eagle."
Poulter stated plainly that the eagle was, "crucial" to him overtaking the Australian. Playing in windy conditions the rest of the way, Poulter played brilliantly creating a two shot cushion through the first nine holes. Poulter would shoot even par over the remaining nine holes for a three stroke victory.

Rory McIlroy won the Hong Kong Open with a bogey free, five under par - 65 for a two shot victory.
McIlroy admittedly did not have his best game the previous days, "This week there have been glimpses of really, really good golf...On Friday and Saturday, I really did struggle."
Without his A-game, the Northern Irishman was still only three-strokes back beginning the final round. Through nine holes, McIlroy, wearing FJ Sport and Pure Touch Limited, would birdie two holes to draw even at the top of the leaderboard. Continuing his superb play, McIlroy then birdied two more holes on the back nine to take a one shot lead into the final hole. On the last, McIlroy's approach shot would land in a green-side bunker, only to hole his next shot for a birdie and the two shot victory.
This win was special for McIlroy, "To come from behind, and to draw level after nine holes and then to play very solid golf on the back nine and be able to close it out, it's something I probably haven't done before." Continuing on, "It was a different win - it would be nice to be walking up the last with a four shot lead every time, but that's just not going to happen. It was nice to finish it off like this."
The win puts McIlroy into second place on the European Tour money list behind Luke Donald, who is trying to becoming the first ever player to win both the PGA Tour money title and European Tour money title in the same calendar year. World number one (Donald) and World number two (McIlroy) will go head to head at the Dubai World Championship later this week to close out the European Tour season.
