Golf's global weekend

Monday, November 16, 2009

How’s this for Chapter 784 of “Golf, The Global Game”:

A young man from SoCal (Tiger Woods) won Down Under in Australia; a Frenchman (Gregory Bourdy) outlasted an Irishman (Rory McIlroy) to win in Hong Kong (a European Tour event, no less); a golfer from tiny Trinidad & Tobago (Stephen Ames) now residing in Canada won outside Orlando, Fla., at Disney (he stayed at FantasyLand, we presume).

And a girl from little old Hawaii won her first LPGA title. In Mexico.

With that, grab your carpet for the next stop in this magical ride: We’re all off to Dubai.

Try to follow that one with a large globe and some stickpins.
