SC Golf’s Coverage of the Pacific Rubiales Bogota Open (Nationwide TOUR)

Steve Pate became the victor after scoring par on the 2nd “playoff hole” at the 2010 Pacific Rubiales Bogota Open which was his first Nationwide TOUR victory. Pate has 6 PGA TOUR wins thus far and is looking hopeful in upcoming events. The Nationwide TOUR returns home to the United States, three weeks from now, for the Louisiana Open. Bubba Dickerson took the title at the 2009 event and is expected to be on the field defending his title.

SC Golf’s Coverage of the Maybank Malaysian Open (European TOUR)

Noh Seung-yul, Korean teen sensation, secured a dramatic one-stroke victory over illustrious countryman K.J. Choi last Sunday at the Mybank Malaysian Open after pulling off an audacious final-hole birdie on Sunday. The 18-year-old, Noh, accomplished the most unlikely birdie at the par 5, 634-yard 18th hole to close out the USD $2 million tournament with a final round score of -4 par (68) and a -14 par (274) total.

“I first won on the Asian TOUR in 2008 but I struggled last year, but to win early in this year I am very happy,” Noh went on to say, “Coincidentally, when I was playing a practice round with K.J. earlier in the week he asked me when my last win was and when I told him it was 2008 he said ‘isn’t it about time you won’?” Noh now holds a card in Asia, Europe, and Japan.

SC Golf’s Coverage of the Champions Tour Toshiba Classic

Fred Couples beat out Ronnie Black and claimed his 2nd Champions Tour win in a row at Newport Beach, California last week. Couples shot a 6-under 65 for a 4-stroke victory Sunday in the Toshiba Classic. Couples earned $255,000 to push his tour-leading total to $691,000.

This is Couples 3rd start on the 50-and-over tour. He had an 18-under 195 total on the Newport Beach Country Club course. He also won the ACE Group Classic on Feb. 14 in Florida and finished second, behind Tom Watson, in the season-opening event in Hawaii. Last week, Couples tied for 14th in the PGA Tour's Phoenix Open.

"In a good way I am full of confidence in my game," said Couples, who opened with rounds of 66 and 64. "I talked to Jay Haas a long time ago and when you are 50 you are the youngest guy out here and if you are a good player like I think I am, I thought I would have some opportunities to win out here."

Ronnie Black (65) finished second. Tom Lehman (69) and Chien Soon Lu (69) tied for third at 12 under, and Watson (62) and Loren Roberts (68) followed at 11 under.

With so many events occurring simultaneously in the world of golf it is difficult, to say the least, to cover everything; especially when you are a one man operation. However, I have done my best to keep the information on SC Golf relevant and up to date. If you have any ideas or suggestions on how to improve this process, please feel free to provide me with feed back!

For example: "We don't care about the European TOUR or the Champions Classic. Just focus on the PGA TOUR." I am open for criticism. In fact, I welcome it! Thank you for reading my blog and as always I am urging you to, "GET OUT OF THE OFFICE AND ON TO THE GREEN!"
