Welcome back to the 24th edition of Cambodia Golf Today, the leading golf magazine in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Brooks Koepka has had quite the season ever since he came back from the wrist injury he sustained back in January, winning the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship in the same year to boost his major title count to three. However, the one thing that I find perplexing is that on top of his three major titles, Koepka only has one win on the PGA Tour. That’s right, the man has three major championships to his name (and he won all of them in just a span of 14 months by the way) but only has one win in regular PGA Tour events. Maybe he is just one of those players that perform better under more pressure.
With the injuries he suffered and the multiple surgeries that he underwent, many people thought that Tiger Woods wouldn’t be able to play golf anymore. When he announced that he was making a comeback, people didn’t think he would be in contention again, let alone actually win another golf tournament. After a rocky start in the first few events of the season, the doubts only grew and grew. However, as the season progressed, Tiger began to show glimpses of brilliance that allowed him to dominate the world of golf in years before. Working to improve himself each and every day, he was able to place himself in contention and came close to winning a number of events. He was even able to score a top-six finish at the British Open and a solo second place finish at the PGA Championship. It was until the last event of the season, the Tour Championship, that he was able to secure a victory. After five long years, Tiger Woods was finally a champion once again. Watching him speak at the trophy ceremony while holding back his tears made me get emotional.
The success of the two players above provided a geat boost of confidence to Team USA as they were looking to end their 25-year winless streak on foreign soil in the Ryder Cup. It looked good for about half of the first day before the Europeans just completely took over and dominated. Tiger in particular did not play well at all, losing all four matches he played in and extended his total Ryder Cup losses to 21. Phil Mickelson who also played poorly, set a new record for the most losses in Ryder Cup history with 22 losses. It will be interesting to see how the $9 million Tiger versus Phil match will turn out.
