Monday Morning Golf Report

March 23, 2009

The Copperhead Course at the Innisbrook Resort in Tampa Bay, Fla., has traditionally been one of the tougher courses on the PGA Tour and this week, it didn't serve to kind for Billy Andrade, Bill Haas or Webb Simpson. All three players would eventually miss the two-day cut.

Retief Goosen held on for his first win on the PGA Tour in nearly four years. He finished with a four-round score of 8-under 276, the highest winning score total so far this season.

The Champions and Nationwide Tour had the week off while Laura Diaz also took the week off from the LPGA Tour.

Despite the missed cut this week, Simpson moved up on the re-shuffle after the west-coast swing and can likely set his schedule for the rest of the season. He made his first four cuts this season and has made over $400,000 in just seven starts.

One year after eclipsing the one-million dollar mark for the first time in his career, Haas is off to another good start this season. He has made a little over $305,000 with a pair of top-15 finishes.

All three players will likely be in the field this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando. The Champions Tour will get back to action this week at the Cap Cana Championship in the Dominican Republic while the Nationwide Tour opens in the states for the first time at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open.

The LPGA Tour is also back state-side this week for the J Golf Phoenix LPGA International in Phoenix.
