Dreaming of golf in Hawaii
While most of the mainland United States is in the deep freeze, the 2010 golf season starts out in primetime in Hawaii. For the next two weeks we can catch golf on the Golf Channel at night. This week, it’s the SBS Championship from the Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort on Maui. Next week, it’s the Sony Open in Honolulu.
Staying on the Hawaii theme, over on the new-look HawaiiGolf.com, we’ve been publishing some new reviews and photo galleries. Most recently, you can check out my review on Turtle Bay Resort’s Palmer Course, which also hosts a tour event, the SBS Open on the LPGA Tour.
The SBS Championship is kind of a cool tournament in that it features only players who won tournaments last year. Of course, the most notable absentee will be on Tiger Woods, who has taken an indefinite leave from professional golf. He wasn’t there last year either, but that was due to his recovery from knee surgery.
By the way, SBS stands for the Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), which has agreed to sponsor the tournament through 2019.
