Sabbatini Wins Nelson
By Kickntrue on 5/25/09
Two months ago if you said "Rory Won" I'm not sure Sabbatini would be the one to pop into your head first, but he showed his top notch game this weekend at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.
"Obviously this tournament is very special," Sabbatini said. "It's one that I wish I had have been able to win it and look up and see Byron sitting there at the 18th green. ... What a wonderful name to be associated with now."

After an 8-foot putt at No. 17 for his third straight birdie, Sabbatini got to enjoy the champion's walk up No. 18. And it didn't matter that his 7-foot par putt slid past and he had to tap in for bogey.

Once the final putt dropped, Sabbatini's 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter -- with "Team Sabo" inscribed on their clothing -- ran out to greet him. He then embraced wife Amy and Peggy Nelson, the widow of Byron Nelson.
I'm a sucker for cute kids and their parents who actually love them (I've been watching too much Southland on the DVR).

Full Story

Usually the PGA Tour dominates the weekend headlines but it was a solid golfing weekend all around. Rising LPGA'er Yani Tseng won the last Corning Classic in New York, Paul Casey won the BMW PGA Championship in England against a good strong field, and in the Champions Tour, Michael Allen won his first ever event, and for the first time in his career in at the Senior PGA Championship.

You can read a bit about each of those victories and more in what's become every Monday reading for me, PGA Tour Confidential over at Golf.com.
