Golfer Jim Furyk, who has a successful 2010 season, struggled early in the last season and now the golfer is gearing up for the 2012 season in a different way – by taking time off from the game. He will not be taking part in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions as he did not win in last season. He is using this off time for improving his game and preparing for the 2012 season.
A three time winner on the PGA Tour, Anthony Kim will participate in the Humana Challenge starting in a couple of days in partnership with the Clinton Foundation. Kim joins a challenge which includes stars like Phil Mickelson, Greg Norman and Bill Hass among others. It is to be noted that Kim has not featured in desert’s PGA tour event since 2008 where he finished third behind D J Trahan and Justin Leonard.
Lee Westwood wasn’t on holiday for long before his season started all over again, this time in Bangkok for the Thailand Golf Championship, at the Amata Spring Club.
This inaugural event was sanctioned by the Asian Tour which makes the tournament an important (and rich) one.
Westwood arrived early at the event, and flew in from Dubai. He attended a charity auction in order to raise money for the Thailand Flood Relief, helping to raise more than sixty thousand pounds to help all the innocent victims of the disastrous floods.
