Tuesday morning saw Michael Da Costa spend most of it finishing one of the countless items on his agenda.
He was completing the new hardwood floors in the grill room at the SkyView Golf Club.
This new change remains one xof the several changes the club’s new head golf professional is seeking to implement for his first season at the club.
Golfers who normally tee it up in the mountainous rolling course this season should more or less expect a new, modern feel that the head golf professional is planning to promote on the course this year.
Already overhauled is the club’s pro shop. The grill room is also undergoing a complete face lift from floor to ceiling. In order to introduce golfers to the course, Da Costa is hoping to host varieties of new events on the course this season.
Speaking, he noted that the vision was to promote the course as a full public course.
“The vision that we both have is to get the course back to where it was, promoting that it’s a full public course, we offer memberships and get our outings back to where they were a few years ago,” he said.
While Tiger Woods is yet to call it quits away from the game in which he has so far won 14 Majors, the fact remains that he isn’t sure of where he is going.
This weekend saw the golf super star in Bahamas, once again playing in a competitive action, and trying to find out what is left of his swing, his legend and his game.
Rickie Fowler, Current PGA hotshot, while musing before Woods teed off at the Hero Challenge on Thursday had said,
“The better he plays, the better it is for golf.”
Nothing that would be said after Sunday by the time Woods wraps up his 72nd hole, would be more salient than the words of Rickie Fowler.
Woods remains a cornerstone for golf, which he has been not just before teeing off on Thursday in Nassau, after laying off for about 465 days, but even for the past 20 years.
Not every golfer is the staid and conservative player.
There is no better example than Rickie Fowler. He is considered a rock star and not without reason. If you see his style of playing you will know that he does not follow the traditional path when it comes to golfing. Hence, you cannot title him as a kid who has grown up and learned to play the game in a country club environment. Having come from a semi rural region in California, he has had lots of fun racing dirt bikes from five years of age as well as discovering golf as a game in Murrieta which is his home town.
Fowler is titled as the number eleven player in the world rankings and that is no minor achievement under his belt. He has several fast cars in his garage today, though his love for dirt bikes still remains. He even sponsors a racing team of Porsche in US. He is planning to try racing himself after a point in time when golf feels too hard for him.
Like the reigning champion and his compatriot, Justin Rose, Luke Donald will be targeting to lift the most wanted trophy for a 2nd time, having winning when the event took place at the Castle Stuart Golf Links in the year 2011.
That magnificent performance – he moved home by 4 shots thanks to a closing round of sixty three – took Donald his 6th win on The European Tour and, having won BMW PGA Championship for a 2nd time in the year 2013, the thirty seven year old would look for an 8th Tour title when he rigs Gullane’s Championship course – a complex of No.1 and No.2 – from 9th July to 12th July.
Luke boasts a magnificent record in the £3.25 million event – he ended in the Top-5 in each of his 1st three appearances, before snatching a win at his 4th attempt – and the former world No 1 is really influenced to carry on that run as well as sharpen his game before 144th Open Championship that takes place the following week on Old Course at St Andrews.
Rickie Fowler is a professional golfer from the United States of America who currently plays as a member of the US PGA Tour. Having been the top ranked amateur golfer for a massive 36 weeks between 2007 and 2008, Fowler turned professional in 2009.
Born in the Murrieta region of California, Fowler is a self-made golfer and for a long time, he only managed to play on a driving range. He won the SW League Final in his senior year in school managing a score of 64-69 = 133 and also led his school team to the state finals that same year. After finishing school, Fowler joined Oklahoma State University and won his first collegiate tournament at an event held by the University of Illinois in October, 2007.
