Monday Morning Golf Report

April 13, 2009

Masters week is a week unlike any other, but unfortunately, no former Demon Deacons were able to take part in the week, at least competitively.

Of course, four-time Masters winner Arnold Palmer, got the week started with the ceremonial opening tee shot on Thursday morning. He also played with former Masters Champions Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player in Wednesday's par-three contest.

The only other WFU representative inside the ropes this past week was Ray Floyd Jr., who was caddying for his father, Raymond Floyd, the 1976 Masters Champion.

After the week off, three of the four major tours are back in action this week. The Champions Tour, which was off for the past two weeks, will get going at the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am in Tampa, Fla., this week.

The Nationwide Tour will be at the Athens Regional Foundation Classic in Athens, Ga., this week while the PGA Tour heads to the Verizon Heritage at Harbor Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C.

The LPGA Tour will be off one more week before hosting the Corona Championship April 23-26 in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico.
