The World of Professional Golf 2005 [ePub]

by Mark H. McCormack

The World of Professional Golf 2005 is the 39th edition of the golf annual founded by Mark H. McCormack, the founder and chairman of sports and lifestyle marketing giant IMG, who died in 2003 at the age of 72. The publication has been continued in his memory, as compiled by leading golf journalists. The leading professional golfers of 2004 are profiled and the highlights of the year are listed in chapter one, The Year In Retrospect. Then there are chapters on each of the major championships and on each of the world's tours, including men, women and seniors. There are scoring summaries from every professional tournament played in the world during the year, detailed information on the Official World Golf Ranking and-exclusive to this publication-the World Money Lists. Without question, the leading professional golfer of 2004 was Vijay Singh, who had eight victories including the PGA Championship and took the title of No. 1 in the world away from Tiger Woods, who fell to third as Ernie Els also moved ahead. Phil Mickelson was a contender through the year and claimed his first major championship in the Masters Tournament. Retief Goosen won his second U. S. Open title, and longshot Todd Hamilton was victorious in The Open Championship in Britain. These and many other highlights are to be found.
