Veteran and new players will test their knowledge and skills at the AT&T National PGA TOUR.
This year the AT&T National PGA TOUR will be more exciting as ever, the mix of Veteran players like Jim Furyk, K.J. Choi or Eric Compton and new stars like Hunter Mahan, Nick Watney and Adam Scott are getting the attention of all golf fans and media. How these hardened veterans will deal with these new championships hungry players?
Every player knows that to win a golf tournament, itīs necessary a bit of luck, but also requires skill; skill gained through the years, but sometimes and very often lately, newcomers are showing that good things can be gained when you are gifted with natural talent. I believe this not only applies to golf, but to any kind of tournament an almost everything in life. However Iīm trying to talk about golf here, so...Letīs talk about some of these stars.
Jim Furyk is one of those experienced players to account, a veteran, someone already forged in the field. He has won 16 times on his 18 years as a PGA TOUR pro-player; and is known for his amazing shots, and definitely has taken advantage of some lucky spark like every one. Furyk won the 2010 FedEx Cup2010 and the PGA TOUR player of the year and has played the AT&T national tournament every year since 2007, finishing at the top 10 on three occasions. In 2011, luck has not been so kind to Furyk; the 41 year-old Veteran only has two top10 finishes and has missed six cuts in 16 starts.
We have Hunter Mahan at the other face of the youth; the collegiate golfer of 29 years stated his pro career on 2003, and took 3 years to ingress in the circle of winners. He won twice in 2010, and this year is getting a good rush having finished at the top ten for seven occasions. As if he was honoring his name, even with such a strong play, Mahan has managed to keep his presence hidden. In 2007 Mahan tied for 8th, in 2008 tied for 12th and in 2009 he finished 2nd. He didnīt play this event last year, but this year looks like Aronomink will become prey for him.
Another veteran face, K.J. Choi always focused; his discipline in the game has brought him many PGA TOUR victories. He is not the best iron player on the TOUR; he doesnīt drive the ball so far, but grinds out pars with precise short game shots. Choi has twelve years of PGA TOUR on his shoulders to back up his game and experience. In 2007 Choi won the inaugural AT&T National at the Congressional Country Club. He tied 49th in 2008, in 2009 he missed the cut and didnīt play the event in 2010. The tournament moved from Washington to the new location last year, so this is the first time Choi will be playing at Aronomink.
Adam Scott is one of these new players craving for more trophies and glory; he won his first PGA TOUR at the age of 24, the Deutsche Bank Championship. He has a stylish and smooth swing that had brought results on TOUR; however, Scott always has issues with his putter, similar to Choi, he has tried many methods on the fields. Scott has played in the AT&T National just one time in 2007, he also missed the cut. This will be his first try on the Aronomink greens.
The predictions favor Hunter Mahan in many fields. Even if this is the first time he will be playing at Aronomink, he plays a superior golf and has a good putter, a very important trait to consider. However, this is like playing at home for Furyk. Aronomink is like the medicine prescript by the Doc to regain his mid-spring form. Choi game has gotten cooler since the victory at THE PLAYERS over David Toms, but Aronomink may be more of his style of play. 75 five bunkers and a line of trees wont scare the South Korean Veteran. Adam Scott shots make him more confident of his new putter, making putts inside 10 feet, something he will find useful on this week.
