Written by  on Tuesday, 29 January 2013

Tiger Woods secured his 75th PGA Tour title on Monday after winning the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines for the 7th time.

Woods went into the final day of the tournament with a six-shot lead and 11 holes left to play but began dropping shots towards the end of the round. Two bogeys and a double bogey narrowed the gap between Woods and the chasing pack but never enough to threaten defeat as the world number two's even-par 72 proved more than enough to hand him victory.

The 37-year-old finished four strokes ahead of last year's winner Brandt Snedeker and Josh Teater who carded three-under 69s to take joint second place.

"I'm excited the way I played all week," Woods said. "I hit the ball well – pretty much did everything well and built myself a nice little cushion. I had some mistakes at the end, but all my good play before that allowed me to afford those mistakes."

Nick Watney (71) and Jimmy Walker (71) tied for fourth on nine-under while Robert Garrigus, Rickie Fowler and Aaron Baddeley shared six at eight-under.

David Colyer of Leaderboard Golf's Chart Hills said:

"A great start to Tiger's PGA Tour season. I think everyone would agree that he is definitely back on track."

Graham Green

Graham runs the Leaderboard Golf Centre - a very busy 37-bay Driving Range, Retail Store, Custom Fitting and Coaching improvement Centre. 

He also runs the retail side for Reading Golf Club, where Leaderboard have a second shop.

His role consists of a multitude of responsibilities, from standard office work to face-to-face selling, custom fitting and team management. In his own words – "It's a very varied role and always full on, yet extremely challenging and exciting. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, so and I'll do most jobs if required - that includes, being a green-keeper, repair man and general Jack of all trades."

Graham started his golf career at Reading Golf Club working with Andrew Wild, who was the head professional there at the time. When Paul and Jennifer Gibbons set up Leaderboard and purchased the driving range in December 1999, Graham jumped at the chance to work for them.

It was Paul Gibbons' enthusiasm for golf, along with his business acumen, which encouraged Graham and meant that he didn't hesitate when he was given the opportunity to work for Leaderboard. Graham believes it's a privilege and a pleasure to be working with such great people on the Leaderboard team.

Graham qualified from the PGA with Distinction in 2003, gaining a Titleist Scholarship. A couple of years later, when Andrew Wild moved across to run Sandford Springs Golf Club, Graham was promoted to General Manager at the Leaderboard Golf Centre.

He describes the favourite parts of his job role with great enthusiasm – "My biggest buzz is seeing amateur golfers of all abilities improving and enjoying the game more. Golf has been very good to me and being able to give back to the sport gives me great drive and determination."
