Team Denmark Prevails, Tiger’s Long Awaited Return

Over this past weekend at the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf in Melbourne, Australia, Team Denmark pushed its way out of a four-way logjam and successfully evaded the pack to capture the title.

Team Denmark was made up of PGA Tour Pro Soren Kjeldsen and Web.com Tour Player Thorbjorn Olesen, who played stunningly and took advantage of choice conditions in their second round to shoot a 12-under, 60.

The win this weekend marks the best finish for Team Denmark since its third place finish in 2013.

Among the pack behind the Danish duo of Kjeldsen and Olesen was Team United States made up of Jimmy Walker and Rickie Fowler. Team United States stumbled off the starting block and continued to falter day in and day out in this tournament, but stayed in contention by always staying below par and trying to play to each other’s strengths. As Team United States went into the clubhouse to sign on their card, they were approached by officials who wanted the team and their playing partners from Team England to review footage of Walker to see if he improved his stance in the trees on the 16th hole. Walker would eventually be cleared, but had Team United States been penalized, it would have put them six strokes behind Team Denmark as opposed to four headed into the final round.

This next weekend, Tiger Woods makes his long-awaited return to the PGA Tour at the Hero World Challenge in Albany; New Providence, The Bahamas. This return marks the first time that Woods will tee it up competitively in 16 months. Barring any major injuries, a 72-hole finish would be a good start for Woods and a competitive set of scores would be more positive re-enforcement for the 40-year-old.
