The WGC-CA Championship and 2010 Puerto Rico Open (Round 1) Covered by SC Golf

The WGC-CA Championship Covered by SC Golf

There was a lot of excitement, and wind, at the 2010 WGC-CA Championship at the TPC Blue Monster at Doral (Doral Golf Resort & SPA) in Doral, Florida. Charl Schwartzel scored a 67 which gave him a one stroke lead ahead of Robert Alleby, Ernie Els, and Vijay Singh. Just one stroke behind the group tied for second are Paul Casey, Soren Hansen, J.B. Holmes, Myrtle Beach’s very own Dustin Johnson, Francesco Molinari, and John Senden all scoring a 69 and tied for third. Needless to say, this was a very close scoring round and, if they play well the rest of the tournament, we are sure to see an extremely competitive final round.

March is a busy month for the world of professional golf. Therefore, the following articles will be brief, but informative and to the point, in order to save you time and the agony of reading long drawn out articles.

SC Golf’s Highlights of the Event:

Charl Schwartzel made a long putt, if you want to call it that, from the rough just outside the green of the 2nd hole for a birdie. He shot a 67 for the day and leads the closely tied event at the WGC-CA Championship.

Jiyay Singh, of Fiji, performed well on the 17th hole. He shot the ball 167 yards into the wind and it almost went in. He sank the putt which lead to a birdie. He finished the day with a total score of 68.

Jerry Kelly showed a much improved short game and to that point sank a long putt for birdie on the 17th hole. He scored a 70 for the day which brought him to tie for the 11th position.

Luke Donald, who scored a 70 for round 1, made an impressive shot from the bunker behind the green of the “Blue Monster”. With only one shot from the bunker, he sank the ball and made one of only 5 birdies scored on the 18th hole today.

Another interesting and rather peculiar shot was made by Sergio Garcia on the 18th hole. He shot his ball from the exit area behind the 18th hole onto the green which enabled him to score par for the infamously difficult “Blue Monster”. Sergio scored a 74 for the opening round.

As previously aforementioned, March is a busy month for the world of professional golf. Fortunately, SC Golf is proud to cover all PGA TOUR and LPGA TOUR events and to bring you the latest news from The CHAMPIONS TOUR, and The EUROPEAN TOUR.
