An annual event that always creates excitement in Houston is the Shell Houston Open, to be hosted again on March 26, 2012. It is sure to be a weekend of fantastic golfing entertainment. 

Spectators will go to Redstone Golf Club to see the golfers take part in the competition. Many will take a break from their everyday lives to attend the event, whether they are missing out on parties, regular get-togethers, or activities such as party poker
. Tickets will sell fast and golf enthusiasts will not want to miss this event. 

This competition has been held in many different locations, beginning at the River Oaks Country Club in 1946. It then moved on to the Memorial Park Golf Course for a year in 1947, before changing yet again, to Pine Forest Country Club. There was even more moving around, from the BreaBurn Country Club to a longer time spent at Memorial Park beginning in 1951 and ending in 1963. 

The event continued to move around, to Sharpstown Country Club, Champions Golf Club and Westwood Country Club. It was even held outside of Houston in Missouri in 1973 at Quail Valley Country Club. It finally settled at its current location in 2003, after moving to Texas and back. 

There have been many happy winners at this competition over the years. Two players have even won the tournament three times each. These golfers are Curtis Strange, who won in 1980, 1986 and 1988, and Vijay Singh, who won in 2002, 2004 and 2005. There have been others who have won twice, and it will be interesting to see who comes out top in 2012.

Congratulations to Adam Scott for his victory this weekend at Firestone Country Club.  It seems the most talked about story of the week is not the win itself but that he was working with Tiger's ex-caddie Steve Williams.  Williams then commented on the win by saying that this was the best victory of his career though he had won 7 times previously at Firestone C.C. with Tiger and many other major championships on his bag too.  These comments had to sting a bit because Tiger mentioned at an interview that he was suprised about how vocal Williams was and wouldn't comment any further on the conversation they had after the round.  The great news for every fan of golf and drama is that the PGA Chamionship is teeing off tomorrow at Atlanta Athletic Club.  Tiger could get his redemption very quickly here.  There is sure to be plenty of good golf and drama, as it is the coveted fourth and final major of the year that is up for grabs.  The last time this major was played at Atlanta Athletic Club, David Toms defeated Phil Mickelson on the final hole with a very controversial lay-up, that wound up being the deciding factor for the win.

Tiger is making his big return next week at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.  I can't wait to see him back in action. I think Tiger's impending comeback will be great for the game of golf.  I am slightly concerned that is he rushing back after his serious leg injury.  I only hope he is able to perform 100%.  Many athletes have been in this position.  You have a lingering injury that may realistically need more time to heal, but your ego and anticipation get the best of you.  I am hopeful that Tiger is fully healed and prepared to make a strong return. Also noteable, Steve Williams, Tiger's longtime friend and caddy, will be missing. I am curious to see how it all unfolds and will most definitely be tuning in!

Tiger Woods has let go Steve William from his job as caddie. The dynamic duo has been together for 12 years. Together they have won tons of championships and majors around the world. So why the sudden split? I have no idea! This could be just another downward turn in the Tiger Woods decision making process. I believe that Steve Williams is an asset toTiger and his game, but just like Hank Haney, he has been fired abruptly. Steve did recently caddie for Adam Scott at the Open and that could be reason for the pink slip. However, the exact cause for termination may never surface, but stay tuned, I have a feeling that we will hear more details soon.
