Palm Beach Party: Oakley Star Golfers Tee Up For PGA’s Honda Classic, Rory McIlroy In Pouncing Position for World No. 1
Luke Donald should be quaking in his boots. The World’s No. 1 ranked golfer is heading into this week’s PGA’s Honda Classic with Oakley’s Superstar, Rory McIlroy, hot on his tail – and in a position to pounce and overtake the top spot. Coming off a solid, yet somewhat disappointing final at the Accenture Match Play Championship this last weekend (where he fell to Hunter Mahan), Rory is charging into West Palm Beach with a fury. A triumph at the Honda would power him to ‘best on the planet’ status, at long last. But as always, the ever-elusive position will be far from a walk in the park to attain. Not only would the UK’s Lee Westwood have to not finish in the top two (with O’s Northern Ireland prodigy winning)…Rory and the entire field have an even bigger obstacle to worry about. The Bear Trap.
She’s the top ranked women’s golfer in the world. And she’s thriving in the spotlight. Oakley’s LPGA star, Yani Tseng, displayed her nerves of steel after a thrilling final hole on Sunday at the LPGA Thailand – fending off a possible playoff after fellow Oakley star Ai Miyazato made a final charge with a close approach. Her eventual one-stroke victory following a killer 100-yard shot, and a tap-in putt for birdie, dazzled the Thai crowd.
