Anthony Kim shoots 62 to lead The Greenbrier

I was really happy to see Anthony Kim back in the game. After struggling for a while with his "entourage", then with his body and finally his enjoyment of the game, he now seems to have shed that and to be enjoying the game that brought him to the golfing world's attention. Rachid Sefrioui says: "Good comeback, AK! keep it going."

Tiger Woods' palace has everything to play Zen Golf

Phenomenal is the attribute that comes to mind when you see Tiger Woods' new dig in Jupiter Island, Florida. An amazing mansion, with access for his yacht and 4 incredible holes with large greens and varied bunkers. Even hole direction was chosen so he can practice with and against the wind. "He may be nurturing that knee but he is certainly not losing his feel for his short game" remarks golf nut Rachid Sefrioui.
