This weekend saw the return of both Chad Campbell, playing at the Bob Hope Classic, and Chris DiMarco, playing in Dubai, to the victor’s circle. For Chad, it’s been 2 years since his last victory, and, for Chris, it’s been 4 years. Just shows you how difficult it is to win on tour. With his second place finish at Sony last week, Chad Campbell appears to be primed and ready for a great season. At the Hope, Jesper Parnevik, finally playing some good golf, finished tied for second with Scott Verplank.

Meanwhile, Annika Sorenstam and teammate Lisalotte Neumann won the World Cup of Golf for Sweden. Even though they shot +3 on Sunday (with some shaky play from Neumann), they still finished 3 ahead of the second place team from Scotland. The U.S. team of Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis finished a somewhat disappointing 4th, at +1, a full 8 strokes behind.

Footnotes: It’s still early in the season, but both Sean O’Hair and Jason Gore are starting to raise questions of “sophomore slump” with their play (although Gore may still be a tour rookie, depending on how you count it). Both missed the cut this week and last week, and both ended up tying Michelle Wie last week. Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson had a good first showing of the season, finishing 5th at -19, while young gun Lucas Glover made up for last week and getting beat by Michelle Wie, and finished tied for 10th.
