Nobody Famous Played Golf this Weekend

This weekend's PGA Golf Tournament was the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, and nobody famous entered. The most recognizable names were David Toms and Mark Calcavecchia. Toms was never a factor, but Calc was right in the race until he shot a Final Round 71 (-1), dropping him from second to open the day down to a tie for fifth.

The champion was first-time winner on the PGA 25-year old Nick Watney, who outlasted another man searching for his first PGA win, Ken Duke. Duke and Watney were tied going into the par 4 fifteenth, where Watney birdied, Duke bogied, and it was pretty much over from there as Watney ended up winning by 3 strokes.

The last three PGA winners have now been the extremely famous to casual fans Zach Johnson, Boo Weekley, and Nick Watney.

Completely unrelated to golf, but I noticed you didn't have a single entry about the true opening of the MLB season. Everyone knows the season doesn't really start until the Yankees and Red Sox play each other for the first of 17-19 times.
