2011 World Golf Championships – Cadillac Championship PGA Preview

The Blue Monster at Doral is a par 72, 7266 yard course that is both challenging and open as well. Controlled tee shots can lead to easy approaches and relatively low scoring. Els won last year with a four round score of 270; 18-under par. The course opened in 1962 and was redesigned in 2000 to feature some of the most spectacular water holes on tour. The layout features long fairways, undulating greens, a deep Bermuda rough and a unique assortment of water hazards including the famous 18th hole that is ranked by GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 100 Holes in the World. The renowned fountain alongside the fairway gives it a storybook look but the gusting winds and water have forced many a leader meltdown coming home.

This year’s field is a feast for fans as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are both set to appear. Preliminary pairings have the two rivals matched up with each other in the opening round. Els is back to defend his crown and take a shot at the $1 million plus top prize. Others set to appear include new world number one Martin Kaymer, England’s Lee Westwood, last week’s Honda Championship winner Rory Sabbatini, overseas stars Vijay Singh, Padraig Harrington and Camillo Villegas plus Americans Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker and Anthony Kim.

With Tiger Woods in the tee box, the potential for a marvelous round exists, but he has not yet found his measure of his new swing. Mickelson has played well so far this year but still hasn’t been able to close out a tournament in his normal grand style. Dustin Johnson also sits in the field and quietly may take the group by storm. Kaymer was fabulous in the 2011 Accenture Match Play Championships and has the most consistent stroke of anyone in the game. Westwood’s putter has failed him so far this year and he tends to struggle on these types of greens.

2011 World Golf Championship Predictions

Look for unknowns to dominate the leader board this week as the world’s best are here and many golf pundits don’t recognize the real names to watch. Look for Y.E Yang to have one of his best tournaments ever and be among the final groups on Sunday.

The winner: I’m going out on a limb with a sleeper from Spain, Miguel Angel Jimenez.

If I’m right and you’ve taken my pick, you owe me an Apple Fritter and a fancy Starbucks coffee – not that cheap gas station stuff. I’ll meet you in Vegas for the NFL draft and you can pay-up there. Come on Miguel!
