Ogilvy Repeats As SBS Champion
By Kickntrue on 1/11/10
Real golf that counts towards 2010! Finally! Not "finally" in the sense that it's been so long since we've had meaningful golf, but more the "finally" of now we can start talking about something real in the golf world.

At any rate, Aussie Geoff Ogilvy won the SBS Championship in Hawaii for the 2nd time in as many years. The only other person to win this event back to back since moving to the Plantation Course at Kapalua is another Aussie, Stewart Stuart Appleby. Coincidence or do Aussies rule the Hawaiian landscape?
"We knew what we had to do," Ogilvy said. "I'd never been in that situation. I'm happy and excited to get it done. I needed to make birdies and I did."

Even though he trailed in the middle of his round, Ogilvy still had plenty of holes in front of him.

He played short of the par-4 14th, a 272-yard hole where most players were hitting driver, and pitched to 4 feet for birdie. And he took the outright lead with a 5-wood into 25 feet for a two-putt birdie on the 15th.
I really like Geoff Ogilvy. Last year when he won- I got on a PGA Tour media conference call with Geoff and asked him a couple questions. Nice guy to take the time for a nobody like me. I'd love to see him turn it on for an entire season. His game seems to turn on and off at random times throughout the season. The good news for Geoff- January is 11 days old, and he already has a 1099 coming in 2010 for at least $1,120,000, his winner's check.

This economy sucks! He so should have made $1,500,000 for those 4 days of work.
