Nothern Trust LA Open, Ishikawa: A 17 year-old Japanese sensation,Ryo Ishikawa, is invited to play Northern Trust LA Open Golf Tournament being held from 2/16/09 to 2/22/09 at Riviera Country Club. I hope Ryo Ishikawa will advance to the final round from Saturday, 2/21/09.

Tiger Woods declared last night that he is participating tournaments from next week. Ryo Ishikawa never saw Tiger Woods, yet. Ryo Ishikawa is also invitged to play at Master's tournament this year. I am looking forward to seeing Ryo and Tiger meeting at Master's tournament soon.

Update / 追記: It looked like a one man race by Phil Mickelson, but he was trailing one shot back at 15th and 16th holes on the last day. He made a birdie on 17th hole and a par on 18th hole to win it at -15 by just one stroke. Fred Couples was charging one shot behind, but he hit his 2nd shot on the 18th hole to the right side tree. It was pretty much exciting until the end of the final round on Sunday, 2/22/09.
Ryo Ishikawa finished at 2 over on Friday's round and did not advance to the championsip round on Saturday. The cut line was -1. He was 3 shots behind. He went to Arizona for the next tournament. He is the 3rd run-up in case of absences among Japanese players. Most-likely he will not participate the tournament but he will watch Tiger Woods participate that tourmament.
This LA Open used to be called "Nissan LA Open" until a few years ago. The sponsor changed as soon as Nissan moved out of Carson city, a suburb of Los Angeles to Tennessee.
