Tiger Kicks Off This Week's Big Event

With all due respect to the McGladrey Classic, the big event this week is the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour. Tiger kicked it off with a quick drive into Europe.

Tiger making history

It was the first time any golfer has ever hit balls from east to west off the Bosphorus Bridge, although one wonders why any golfer would have tried for any other reason than to publicize a golf tournament. You can get more details about the drive from this link at europeantour.com. (The photo came from there as well.)

The Open itself is the last event before the DP World Tour Championship, where the winner of the Race to Dubai will be determined. After their great finishes behind Dustin Johnson this past weekend, the trio of Graeme McDowell, Justin Rose, and Ian Poulter have really put the screws to Henrik Stenson's bid to become the first Euro winner of both the FedExCup and the Race to Dubai. In fact, McDowell is a mere €145,865 behind Stenson now.

You can get more details on the Race to Dubai standings at this europeantour.com page. But you don't need any links to know that the Race is on... and Stenson appears to be gasping for air. The Turkish Airlines Open is the must-see event in this week's golf.
