Get Ready Phil

Posted: February 19, 2009 by joshsnider in Posted by Josh Snider, PGA Pro Oxmoor CC

Because you are the defending champ. I know the beginnings of the season has been not what you wanted, best finish a tie for 42nd, but this is the best field in golf & you are the best american golfer in the field. Riviera CC is a classic layout that involves some of the best bunkering on any golf course in the world. Players love to play great golf courses and so that is the main reason why you have 29 of the top 50 players in the world in the field. Players who Phil should note include:
Mike Weir – Past champion (2003& 2004) and has played strong with a 2nd @ Pebble & 3rd @ Hope.
Padraig Harrington – Got to have the last two major champion on the radar. He has played well on the course having a 7th & 3rd place finish the only two times he played.
Ernie Els – The big easy has won at Riviera & is currently 2nd in GIR (greens in regulation) and accuarcy is extremely important.
Luke Donald – The englishman has had a solid recovery from his wrist problems in 2008 with a good start this season. He has played well here finishing in the top 15 in all 3 of the 4 cuts he made.
