For the first time outside the U.S mini tours, Harold Varner III has won the Australian PGA.
Varner had fired nine birdies on Sunday in a closing 65 which saw him finish at 19 under, two clear of the Australian, Andrew Dodt, and four ahead of Adam Scott, the Masters Champion in 2013.
The 26 year old American had finished as a runner-up last year after a playoff, and during his rookie season on the PGA Tour, he had come off with four top-10 finishes.
Adam Scott has just proven why he’s one of the best golf players in the business today.
We are referring to his recent stint at the WGC HSBC Championship, which was held in China. He fought back relentlessly on day three. And it was one of the most spirited performances we have seen in the recent times.
Hope you might be remembering the popular American golfer and Ryder Cup winner Anthony Kim.
The golf course’s Bigfoot Kim is an elusive man on the golf scene, but has been spotted quite a few times in the So & So’s Dallas bar or in a penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas or in the Madison Club ranch in California.
Australian golfer Adam Scott is all set to return to his homeland to compete in the 2016 Australian PGA Championship.
This tournament will be taking place in December and Adam will be looking to repeat the feat that he had achieved in 2013. The 36 year old golfer will be appearing in the European tour event for the first time in 4 years. The tournament will be played at the RACV Royal Pines Resort from 1 to 4 December.
Rory McIlroy, the Irish golfer, wakes up at 5.30 am for breakfast.
After an hour, he is out running. Followed by yet another breakfast at 7.30. By it is 9 o’clock, he hits the course before a position of lunch at noon. After an hour-and-a-half, he is back at the tee box for yet another 3-and-a-half hours drill before he could polish off a mid-afternoon snack. McIlroy’s main gym workout starts at 4.45 pm. He takes dinner at 6.30 pm and by 10 pm, it is light out, bed time.
Dustin Johnson is surely going through a fantastic state lately - he has been the longest of hitters on PGA Tour with an average of 315.1 yards, owns 2nd best average & it seems that he is on his way to make big at Zurich Classic.
The 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play has come up with a new format this year that has been duly welcomed by pro golfers like Adam Scott & Jason Day.
Adam Scott has been teamed with Chris Kirk from America, Paul Casey from England & Francesco Molinari from Italy.
Paul is like the dark horse of the group who finished as runner-up in 2009 & 2010 events. Scott, who missed the 2014 WGC partly in protest of traditional Match play format, is hopeful that the latest change in format would be helpful for him.
Bubba Watson earlier told that he came to the Augusta National Golf Club in 2015 more set to defend his title than he was 2 years ago. And it really showed. Bubba, who has skidded on the Masters Tournament winner’s green jacket 2 of the last 3 years, started his bid to the 4th player to win back-to-back honors with a 1-under par Seventy-One. He trails leader Jordan Spieth by 7 shots going into Friday’s 2nd round.
Adam Scot, the Australian Golfer who currently holds the third rank has selected Mike Kerr, a Zimbabwean as his full time Caddie. Mike Kerr was the Caddie of Scott when he was playing at the Australian Open in November last year.
Mike Kerr got the fifth place in the competition. He was Scott’s caddie also in the month of December last year when he got the second place in the PGA Championship Australia. Kerr was offered the job of being the full time caddie for Adam Scott soon after that.
The United States did not enjoy the best of Ryder Cups this time around, suffering yet another defeat in the prestigious team event. But while the Europeans lay the claim to the famous trophy for yet another time, American golfer Matt Kuchar remains the undisputed king of the ping pong table.
