Wil Wilcox moves up from #18 to #5 and the rest of last week's top 10 pretty much remains the same.

The Hooters Winter Tour is winding down, who will take the top spot?

Play at the Forrest Lake Golf Club got off to a slow start due to the cold temperatures they're having in the Orlando area. Play was delayed an hour and a half, but scores are starting to roll in. There's only three more tournaments on the Hooters Winter Tour after this one, so it should be interesting to see how the money list shakes out over these next few weeks. The number one guy, Joe Affrunti is not playing, but Michael (#2), and the rest of the top 10 are playing as well. Jim Renner's been knocking on the door and playing incredibly well. He's ranked #3 without a win.

It's Wiiiinnnnndddyyyy!

The Winter Tour starts back up today at Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, FL. Scores from the first round look high, probably due to the 14 mile/hr winds they're having out there.

Christmas 2009 Update

January 4, 2010: I saw Michael over the holiday break while in Tucson. Here's a few things I learned:
  • He was signed up for the tournament at Southern Dunes but canceled at the last minute when he learned his girlfriend got in a car accident. She's doing better now.
  • He attributed his recent success on the winter tour to some things he's been working on with Susie Myers, his swing coach.
  • While playing at tournaments, he usually stays with members of the golf club where the tournmanet is being played. People volunteer to be hosts when the Hooters Tour comes to their town.
  • He can hit a golf ball farther with a pitching wedge than my brother and I can with a driver. It was my first time golfing, and Roz's second.
