A single uncharacteristic putt for Tiger Woods has given Nick O'Hern the title of "The Man who broke Tiger Woods' win streak". David took down Goliath for the second time in match play!

Yes, this was a day of mental errors for Woods, from a shot that landed in the drink right down to that four-foot putt on the nineteenth hole which, as Woods claimed, left a "totally" repairable ball mark.

We at Golf for Beginners, discuss the USGA Rules of Repair on the Putting Green as well as how you can avoid Tiger's costly mistake.

Barry and I also review the Club Glove Aficionado III stand bag. It's extra-light (only 5.6 lbs. fully loaded) as well as amazingly strong. The Izzo dual-strap design coupled with a thick, large lumbar support makes it comfortable and easy to carry.

A super-nice feature of the Club Glove Aficionado III is that all pockets are easily removable for lighter practice rounds although don't be fooled by this golf bag! It's large enough to comfortably fit a full set of clubs. Check out our review!

Finally, congratulations to Henrik Stenson on his win at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship! I knew he was going to win all along...right RonMon? Too bad I'm not a gambler!

Thanks Sean. We love the Club Glove Aficionado stand bag.

As a matter of fact, we haven't yet found a product that we feel is unsatisfactory. Companies keep coming out with new ideas that really work!
